Great Trout Action Off Matlacha
Here are a couple of shots of my buddy Noel Plumb from California who had a blast hooking slot legal trout all over Matlacha Pass. We started off throwing spinning gear but he wound up getting the majority if his fish on the fly rod. The water temps are back up in the high 60's and this has the trout as hungry as ever. Clouser Minnows work best on the deeper flats and we've been getting some great hits on topwater lures in less than a foot of water while looking for reds. The forecast looks great for the rest of the week so this bite should continue to get even better.
