It is about that time, for "White Trout Junkies" like myself to start having fun.
That first cold snap usually brings them to the bridges for the winter..

I love a three hour trip, and try to bring home only 50.
I always screw up and come home with 70+

It is none stop catching, a great trip to bring newbies on!!!

White trout are pretty easy when you find them. Bob Sykes fishing bridge or the drive on bridge next to 3 mile bridge. Good behind wahoo stadium nice pier. Use cut mullet or cut pin fish. I rig a Carolina rig or double loop. Catchumup

If you have a boat with a bottom machine, it is easy.
Ride along Three Mile or Garcon, watch for any structure. Drop anything down artificial, like a Gulp Penny. Once you get a few, I use cut bait, from a White Trout. They are Cannibals.

Drop down, bounce off the bottom a turn or two, try to count to 10, Fish on before you get there.
Then decide if it is large enough to keep or not.
Constant action once you find them.

I like to fish two people. One in the front, one on the stern, with a 5 gallon bucket for each angler. The bucket helps keep an eye on how many we have caught.

Then dump them in the ice, and head to the house. I can clean one a minute, so 50 takes about an hour. 70 take 1.6 hours, that is too long.

They do not freeze well at all. So keep your fillets on the top shelf of the frig, with a little milk splashed over them, and eat them for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, every which way you can think to cook them.

Nothing like Fish and Eggs for breakfast.

I see a lot of people on the Shalimar bridge fishing. I'm not sure what they are catching.

We have been catching them on the west side of 3 mile bridge south of the channel. You will see them on a bottom machine. They are great for kids as they can catch them consistently on a drift.
