Still Bringing Home The Trout

Mother Nature obviously hates the northeast right now, but she doesn't seem to like Pine Island too much this month either.  Last week we had cold temps, the lowest in five years, but it warmed up quickly and that created a lot of fog.  Even though our skies are drippy and grey, the fish are eating once again and snook season is right around the corner.  Keeper size trout are an everyday catch and I've sent a few guys home with decent meals this week.  Live shrimp are always the best bet and our local bait shops are selling some really nice sized ones lately.  If they run out this weekend a bucket of Gulps is almost always just as effective.
