Mid-Bay Trout & Back Marsh Reds

Trout are coming in off area shell reefs as the bait migration puts the predators squarely on structure.  Capt. Kolten Braun lit them up on artificial's yesterday with waders and Capt. James Cunningham let me know he had limits at 9:30am on plastics as well.  Redfish continue to jockey for position over mud/grass with schools moving on water levels changes and wind shifts.  The latest front wasn't near the catalyst for a strong feed as the previous but it still had guests busy working drags and having a ball.

Airboat trips have proven very productive with the fish pushing to the farthest reaches of available shallows on elevated tides.  Capt. Chris Cady has been pulling them out of the woodwork of late as well.  

Duck Report

Capt. James Cunningham said he was getting an "itchy trigger finger" yesterday watching Gadwall, Teal, and a few Wigeon trading back and forth hung up on grasses in pot holes.  Capt. Chris Cady reported seeing a few flocks of Pintails and some Redheads already showing up.
