3 days of fishing, 3 man limit each day.

Fishing for trout was very good, reds were slow. We never caught a slot fish, either unders or overs. Couldn't catch any flounder nor spanish mackerel bur caught lots of blacks.

Trout were big, average was around 17.5 inches, very few bare keepers (2-3 out of the 3 day limit) and lots of 18-19 inch fish. Best were 23, 22, and 22.

Scallop season opened Saturday and there were around a hundred boats that afternoon at Pepperfish, didn't bother the trout but took us over an hour to take the boat out

4 foot plus or minus a bit.

Mostly on gulp shrimp and jerkshad. Nuclear Chicken, glow were the best jerk shad colors. Nuclear chicken, glow/chartreuse, New Penny/Chartruese, and New Penny in shrimp

Some on cut bait, but gulp outfished the cut bait.

It was odd that we caught more fish over big solid grass flats than on spotted water.

On the first morning, we got lucky that thunderstorms pushed us further south a couple miles more than where we usually fish and we hammered the shorts with a slack tide and dead water, so we knew to hit it hard when the tide moved and it worked out. When the water started moving the bigger trout started hitting.

On day 2, it was tough that morning and we only had 4 keepers at 1230 or so, we had worked our way down to the same area hitting our other known spots that morning. The tide got the water moving and we went to the area from the day before and went from 4 trout to 15 by 230 including 2 over 20. I caught a 22 and two 19s in less than 10 minutes.

Day 3, went straight down to the same area and were tossing back keepers by lunch. No one else were even trout fishing.

That’s awesome. Always nice when you find a pattern.
I haven’t been to the coast in 6 weeks, which is unusual for me. Maybe one day here soon
