I met some guys down and the Reel Inn this morning to run a trip for Capt. T. Miller. They wanted big redfish so I laid out the plan in my head. I figured the reds would bite early and then we would go looking for trout. We arrived at the redfish hole and immediately marked a pile of fish. I mean they were stacked on top of each other. I started breaking crab over the gunwale and got a good chum line going. The first few baits were found by the illusive hardhead catfish but the second round struck red. One after the other the guys were punching reds in the lips. The action was hot and heavy for an hour and a half as we boated our 5 over slots as well as 2 slot fish. When the smoke cleared the reds were napping in the big KYSEK. On to the trout. Since the early morning trout bite was over we had to settle for bird hopping. We hit the lake and quickly found the flocks of gulls working all over the place. Each flock yielded a handful of keeper fish with 90 percent of the fish caught being under sized. That’s a good thing though. There is A LOT of speckled trout in the area that will soon grow which means some solid fish come winter.
