Steve Tuttle and his son Sloan hit the water with me one last time before they go out of town for a good while. We had to change our plans this morning due to a faulty weather forecast. The wind was supposed to be out of the SE at 5 - 10 mph. Instead, it was blowing 18 knots gusting to 23 out of the ENE. We got to our first spot around 9 AM and it wasn't long before we started picking up a solid trout here and there. It was the best school of trout I've seen in months. The issue was trying to stay on them in the stiff winds. Once that played out we bounced around for several hours without so much as a nibble. Finally, the wind started to subside as the tide was starting to come in and there were slicks everywhere around us. We hit them in spurts for a couple of hours before heading in around 5:30 with 17 trout and one redfish in the box. Most of our trout were shaped like footballs and in the 3 to 4 pound range.

Everything was caught on 10W40 and Red Shad Salt Water Assassins while wading and drifting scattered shell. We lost almost as many as we caught because of the soft bite. Sloan lost a trout at the boat that would have easily weighed 6 pounds. Things are really shaping up, especially when the wind cooperates.

Capt. Steve
