Mid-Bay Trout & Back Marsh Reds
Capt. Nathan Beabout reported an outstanding series of trips on soft plastics and slow movers taking solid Trout to 25" and plenty of numbers in some nice pre-frontal weather windows. Cast & Blast guests hitting a few Redfish and Black Drum in slick-offs pre-front working flats and mud/grass potholes.
Just add wind and a touch of weather and we were certain our duck concentrations would respond and they did. Pre-front we were feeling thin on Redheads but that's looking much better post front with falling water levels and plenty of wind. Capt. James Cunningham reported solid decoy action the last couple of days with ice on the decoy strings this morning. We'll get to see if the birds freshened up a bit as the harshness of the weather eases up a bit. Things are certainly looking encouraging for awhile.
The hunting and fishing is always best when you can get away!
