Find a new spot...Maybe change baits and tactics. Try to find deeper water? Just my .02!

For bait, use one of the white trout you just caught. Cut one side off (filet it) and keep that for cut bait for the more trout. Then put the rest of the trout in the hook, I hook on the lips-bottom to top. Fish on bottom and just let it sit til the zzzzzzzzzzzzingggg. have drag loose enough to let out some line but with enough reisitance to prevent spooling. Last Sat. i got 4 black tips back to back. the time of day doesn't seem to matter, in fact we seem to get more shark bitesduring the day. Use a steel leader, he doesn't seem to mind or even notice it. He just wants fresh meat.

Once hooked, the key is getting him on the boat, getting the urinary vein removed and come back with both hands including 10 fingers. For Mitch and I, it is a team event and very calculated / practiced.

I am unaware of the urinary vein.I usualy get all the skin off and marinate the fillets in milk or buttermilk and they turn out great.And yes I have experienced the fun it can be not just getting them in the boat but after they are in they can still be fun getting in the fishbox specially if they are over the 4 foot range of my box.Thanks for the advice and good fishing.
