Default TROUT Report

HI Guys!!!!

Made our way to FWC early. Tried to get some finger mullet @ a few places along the road to No avail.

Put in and tried by the landing. Only a few. Got out into the channel near the rocks and caught about 60-70 with 2 of us throwing nets.

Any who head out to the SE about 20 miles. Got to the platform; 4 boats there already. With 2 right behind us.

Found a spot, anchored up, and I throw the first mullet out. About 2 minutes later Trout on.

Then tried to help the others get the right rig-ups.

We start getting cut off. After about 45 minutes here comes a workboat with a sandblasting crew coming right to the down current side of the platform.

We didn't have to move, but the boat, backing down to the platfrom really messed up the bite.

1 hr goes by no trout and it's time to move. So we go a little further south. Water was toothy.

First cast on plastic. Felt a thump, then nothing. Reeled in no jigggyhead.

Put some wire on and catch a few nice trout along with VERY large Spanish.

Couldn't get a bait down without loosing wire, hooks, weights, and jigheads.

Anyway we weregoing to leave and head north. I said lets try down wave and current side of wellhead.

First cast with a plastic. Thump. Nice FISH. A little drag puller.

About 5' down I saw a flash. I said get the net.

A really nice Pompano hits the net. Made My day!!!

Caught 1 about 4.5#. Ended the day with about 18 trout and 10 large spanish.

The pic has a few of the nicer trout and the one pompano. Can't wait to pan sear with olive oil and a little pure butter and my secret seasoning.

All in all a fun day with a friends.

If you're going long better get some live bait.

Nice Catch. I caught a Pompano yesterday and fried it up, didn't know how to cook it. Tasted like trout. Will have to try the pan searing method next time.

Nice job. Spanish are bad out there when the water gets right.
