For the 2coolers they say “nobody post bad trips.”
Well seeing as I caught a bunch of fish the weekend before I was planning on hammering the trout. This time I had my wife and my parents with me.The weather conditions had not changed drastic enough to where I thought the fish would move out of the area.We start fishing a gut where the flat dumps off in to it.There is bait galore.Mullet were running for their lives and spraying.I couldn’t ask for a better setting, so I thought at the time.We bail out the boat and start wading.We fish for a while with no action and my dad finally catches a few dink trout at the end of the pocket over some mud and grass mix.I think to myself, it’s the same structure as I was catching fish the previous weekend.I was holding off going to the prior weekends mud and grass drain until the major feeding period.We move into the drain during the major feeding, what I thought was going to be the guaranteed spot, to put some fish in the box.The drain was still holding bait. Even smelt and seen a few slicks but no fish.After that moved to some other places with mud and grass mix and caught some more dink trout but we couldn’t find any keepers.It became a hop and a skip around the bay looking for fish.We threw DSL chicken of the c and kicken chicken, 4” Sea Shad – blue/limetruese, red/white, salt n pepper, Gambler – koolaid, thumpin mullet – pink hologram, super spook jr. – clown and then some more lures. I had bait/nervous bait and I had slicks. I don't think they were bait slicks either because they were small. Trips like this make me go, “I should have tried….” On the plus side I ran to a few new places I’ve wanted to check out and put some tracks on the GPS, and it’s always a good time with the family.
