Fished a couple of hours last evening. tide was making the moon was full the sun had just dropped. I caught a little trout I made a few more casts and Wham! Mr big hits and takes off enventually I turned him I got him about 20 ft from me and then he did a couple of laps. reached out and removed the hook from his lip , then i released him. That was the biggest trout ive caught in three months. This trout Is A GATOR! And she is still out there to fight again. This trout was over 5lbs and it was all of 26 inches because i held him against my rod and then measured when i got home.I caught @ DB Flats Thats East of the Navarre bridge On the south side of the sound. If you are fishing from the wall between the bridges You are close , but to reach it you have to wade. Good Luck :usaflag

never caught no trout in between the bridges but with a long cast i have caught a big red and a few small ones there

nice catch, thanks for the report
i use live bait on almost everything i catch accept for pomps but everything else

went out this morning to the bridge area and there were dead fish floating everywhere and birds galore threw out a line with live shrimp and not even a nibble , didnt satay out long though so who knows , will try again maybe after the tide comes back up
