The month of October began with a good run of slot redfish with plenty bulls mixed in. When the reds slowed down we started working on the trout. Day by day the trout got closer and closer inshore starting with some of the most small trout I have ever seen in the area. Most days you had to work through hundreds of small trout to get a solid finish. After the last cool front the numbers of bigger trout increased exponentially. What were babies under the birds in the lakes finally turned into keeper sized fish. By the beginning of this week some really fat trout showed up on the banks and reefs of all the big lakes, even Lake Decade. This morning we got on a solid run of decent sized trout ranging from 14″ to 18″. It is as if they were right on cue. This week last year is right about the time we started crushing them as well. After about 30 fish right at daybreak we pressed on to work flocks of birds. The ones with the most seagulls as usual had the bigger fish. Liar birds were working in separate flocks as well but all those fish were tiny trout or white trout. I think after the next cold front the fish will transition into their usual holes inside the marsh ponds and bayous.
