With the year coming to an end the trout bite has continued to be really good. Some days it take a bit to find them other days everywhere you try has good fish. Trout move so much at times you really need to stay on top of them. As far as the reds go, we have not had the best conditions , somedays have been windy and sunny others no wind and clouds, and some other day cloudy and windy ! With the first tru winter cold fronts beginning to swing through the area, the trout bite may slow a bit depending on water temps and duration of the cold. The reds should continue to fish well, just need to pick your day. I had to post the pic of the bull red again, due to it’s size. What a slob !
Ok so I have a few lame pics, but there is a method to my madness. Johnny Edenfield and myself headed out for some trout fishing. We hit a few places I had done well at just before the last set of big tides and no fish. After finding a few fish here and there we finally hit paywater. Now the reason for the lame pics. Johnny and myself both have a bit of a competitive nature. So we both want to catch the most fish. I had to get a couple of shots for the post, so no great pics of he or I holding some of the bigger fish or anything like that. Just get a pick and get the lure back in the water! We busted them really well on DOA’s and topwater lures and had a complete blast. Who caught the most ? Who knows and who cares, that was just one fun day on the water with Johnny. The reds are now schooled up really well everywhere, Especially around HHI all one needs to do is go to the west side of Pickney. Clear water and big schools of reds really gets my heart beating. If the schools are jumpy try using 12 -14 foot leaders and a lighter fly. I have had a few people tell me that the fish are jumping on the cast, so I ask them how long was your leader. The answer , 8 or 9 feet. you will be surprised how much a difference a little more length will make.
