Default Wow it was a cold morning, but productive

I talked Oxbeast in to going fishing with me this morning especially since yesterday he dragged me out in to the bay with 5' swells. Anyhow, after piling on 5 layers a clothes we headed to blackwater to hunt for anything that would bite. I figured the trout and striper bite might be good with some tide movement finally and cold temps. We got to our first spot and after a few casts landed a 21" trout. After a few minutes I noticed some movement on top and started working my subsurface jerk rapala. A monster trout surfaced, following my lure to my yak. It took one swing at it and missed. I cast a few more times and "bam" hook up. I landed and she was big and fat. But before I could measure her and release her, she dove back in. Oh well, I was going to release her anyhow. Ox and I fished the spot a little longer with no luck, so we moved. At the next spot, we landed a few more upper slot trout. We started to get pretty cold so we did some trolling and found a couple more good size ones. We headed to our last spot and the wind starting to kick up. We were both gettin cold at this time so Oscar started to head back to the launch. I fished for another 15 minutes or so and then I get nailed by a 23" fat beauty. Overall great time for a few hours of fishing. The trout seemed to be near the surface and mid water column early. The last trout caught was on the bottom, slow trolling with a green paddle tail grub. Oh yeah, I did notice there was only one boat fishing the area so I am glad to know there was at least one other person as nuts as us to be fishing in these tempertures. Thanks ox for hanging in there with me.
