Erratic weather sometimes causes some problems. Very cold over the weekend and warm today and the fish responded accordingly. The speckled trout were a bit more cooperative than the redfish but I wouldn’t say either species were particularly happy with the big cold front. Produced our speckled trout by fishing ledges and deeper water where there was plenty of baitfish and mullet. The redfish were taken in shallow water around the very few schools of mullet that we could find. We also found some over-sized redfish in the 30-32″ range on schools of menhaden but even they were difficult. Stayed with the Gulp! 5″ Jerkshads because they simply catch the most fish. Each day, we found low numbers of speckled trout and a few redfish. The fishing will definitely improve this week with the better water movement and warmer temperatures. We need some decent winds out of the east, south or west. High winds, please! Reports to follow all week. Thanks, E Holstman
