3/30 report – post full moon pattern by Captain Rick Hammond
I wade fished lures with my group of 3 people the last 2 days. We found very fast action for trout in the first 20-30 minutes of the morning on both days. Fish were holding shallow and tight to shell reefs early, and moving quickly to adjacent deeper soft bottom after sunrise. On Friday we caught 16 keeper trout before sunrise, and 20 before sunrise on Saturday. All of the action came on TTF Killer Flats Minnows in Texas Roach color, tipped with 1/8 oz. TTF long shank/wide gap jig heads. Redfish were a little hard to come by, and we found a handful of lower-slot fish in the back lakes and mud bottom coves. On Friday we ended with 19 trout and 6 reds, and on Saturday we had 30 trout and 1 red.
