Everything about today was an upgrade compared to yesterday. Right when the wind started to howl, all of a sudden it went to the west and dropped down to less than 10. But I would have been happier with it up higher because with the wind drop the tide also dumped out. Spot number one only produced one Big blowup and I ended up leaving there fairly quick after not getting a follow up. That spot was sand and grass where I caught the 25 yesterday and it's not very protected so when the wind started to increase and the fish didn't want to cooperate, I left. It's not a numbers spot anyway.
Approached second area and it was looking good. When planning your strategy to access an area, remember that a quiet approach can make all the difference in the world. You may even park on the opposite side of the reef or point and walk down the bank or allow the wind to blow the boat into the parking area. I personally try to avoid going in there with the boat myself.
Thigh deep water over a little mud with some patchy grass and good numbers of the right kind of forage in the area. Pretty classic Big Trout DVD situation over and over. Also, habitat is where habitat is. Sorta like the statement 'it is what it is' it doesn't matter what the spot looks like from our perspective it only matters if it has what the big fish are looking for in terms of habitat.
She was right at 28in on the nose. Hit a pearl black back fatboy. I also caught a 24 with her and missed one other strike. It's not a numbers spot. Took a pic and let them both go, maybe they'll be 30s when you catch them. I'm walking the fat boys at a fairly moderate pace after a little bending to get them to walk. (Nose down 1/4 in and tail down about an 1/8th).
Still a lot of time to pick up the big trout DVD and stick a pig wading.
don't forget about the 2cool discount, you guys have been great to us and it's our way of giving back.
