This week i fished 2 days with NFL referee named Ed, and his son’s Rick and Mike. We had a great time together and we caught a lot of trout. The weather was so beautiful and the bite was on, definetly a memorable trip for all of us.
On April 23rd the trout bite was fast and furious first thing in the morning. All three of the guys hooked up on nice sized trout on their first cast! They had a blast reeling in fish after fish while the bite lasted. We ended up catching 29 speckled trout and then i moved us to a location with a few oil rigs around. We fished around the rigs and caught 10 sheepshead on trout rods with a cork on top, it was a blast – but, i stopped them at 10 keepers. We headed over to another rig and we found some bull reds. We caught four nice bull reds and we lost a couple others too, we were also able to land a big black drum. Day one final count: 10 Sheepies, 2 Black Drum, 4 Bull Reds and 29 beautiful trout!
Day two –
On Friday some weather moved in and the wind picked up. We fished in some difficult conditions but we managed to bring in 27 trout first thing. Later I took us to an oil rig again and we landed one beautiful bull red. After that we did not have the sea legs to stay out in open water any longer, so we ran inside, fished for a while and caught a few rat reds and then decided to called it a day! Despite the weather we still caught fish and had a great time!
