Default Lots O Trout

After my initial plans were changed due to the wind, I headed to a spot fishable w/ ENE winds.
Pushed off shore at 6:00, the wind was now gently pushing me parallel to the shore. I knew from experience with this spot, there is plenty of mullet, croakers, pinfish and so on to keep predators interested.
Not much happened until ‘bout 6:45, I was staked out alongside a depth change that was holding mullet. Pelicans were dive bombing 100 yds. out from me & every now and then something blew up on the mullet around me.
I was tossing a mr-17, zara spook and 1/8” oz. stand-up jig w/ black/red soft plastic. I caught fish on all 3, but the MR-17 won quantity and quality hands down. The trout seemed to want the MR17 almost skipping across the top of the water (escape mode). I discovered this after the 2nd trout hit as I was reeling in for another throw. 1-fish doesn’t make a pattern, but the 2nd, 3rd one certainly does.
I managed to catch the red (24”) on the spook tossing to a blow-up, a couple twitches and the red inhaled it. Over the course of the next 3-1/2 hrs. I meandered up n down a ¼ mile stretch of water following the mullet schools and I think the final tally of trout between 14” – 22” was about 12-15 & 1 red.
The tail-gate photo is what I culled for dinner. The others didn’t make the cut, lucky them.

My out-of-the-wind spot was not as hot as yours was. Nice morning!

Yes the green, and black backs have always been my favorite, but the chartreuse I have yet to even get a hit on. The 18, and 49 look almost identical in the color chart, can you tell me what the actual difference is?

Outstanding Bruce. I tried Indian Bayou a few days ago, to stay out of the wind, was able to find a few, nothing like what you did today. The water temp was 72 degrees when I launched. It surprised me how much the cold front changed water temp in the bayou. heven't made it out to the bay since, Do you think the bay cooled off as much as the bayou?

Fish the chart. deeper, give it a longer count-down before making that first twitch. The diff. between the others is a diff. shade of green & a pearl belly on #49, to me they are the same. I forgot to list it but the speckled trout pattern is what caught yesterdays fish on, I use the green backed and speck. patterns more than anything.

Hi Mac;

I think the bay water temp. dropped just a bit, the bite was spotty before the slight temp. drop...it picked up considerably.
