Nov. 7th - Late Morning Limits of Big Trout!
Walt, Paul and John came in from Brenham to fish with me in pretty stiff SE winds. Luckily, the tide was very high which helped the water maintain its clarity and allowed us to trick some very nice trout. It was slow going for the first couple of hours with us just moving around trying to get on some fish that would cooperate. We picked off a dozen or so trout and a flounder during that time. When the tide started falling out the trout went into a really good feed. It took us 3 drifts to box their 30 trout to 23 inches. Paul also caught and released a chunky 5.75 pound speck in the process. We left them feeding at 12:45 PM so the guys could get back on the road to beat work traffic. Various colored Bass Assassins and H&H Queen Cocahoe Minnows fished over scattered shell in 3.5 to 5 feet of water led the way to a very heavy box of fish. The majority of our trout were in the 18 - 22 inch range.



Nov. 8th - Very Breezy, But Still Good!
Brian Castille, his dad Gerry and their friend Tom made fast wind-driven drifts with me today to scrape up 15 trout, one nice red and a keeper flounder. The fish were right where we left them the day before, but the bites were much softer causing us to lose at least 15 trout before getting them to the net. With the exception of a couple of 16 inchers, our trout were above average in size with most of them in the 20 to 22 inch range. We also released two trout that were over 5 pounds. Plum Queen Cocahoes and Calcasieu Brew Bass Assassin Sea Shads were our best baits. There really weren't many slicks to focus on, but certain patches of water had concentrations of mullet flipping which pointed us in the right direction. With winds gusting to more than 25 mph and storms headed our way we pulled the plug at 1 PM and headed to the ramp.
