The water in our system is hovering around 86 degrees. The lack of rainwater has caused a number of fish to find their way to the back waters, the likes of sand shark and black tips…………..
We are able to make use of that small croacker to catching near limits of solid speckled trout and a few slotted redfish.
Using soft plastic baits the likes of Assassins, Norton, Stanley and Gulp are equal to the task other than more casting to catch the limits. Color are limetruse, plum, salt-pepper, lime tiger and new penny.
From Marker 62 to 38 along the channel are areas and Hannahs, Deep and Frenchy’s are scoring as well. Use either 3/8 or 1/4 depending on tidal flow. Carolina rig with 1/4 oz or just a pinch on 1/4 oz will work for the live croackers.
Several good speckled trout just over 25 inches are being released. You are allowed to retain one daily. Most fish are 18-23 inches. Redfish are in the slot to 23 inches.
Leave before daylight and returning by 1100 am. Use sunscreen and liquids like water and gateraid will hydrate yor system to keep you from overheating.
Enjoy our Lords outdoors and take the little ones……………….
