July Trout Bite Surprisingly Great!

The last couple of weeks we’ve had some really good Seatrout catches and we’re getting a few that are over 20″. Some of them have been down deep in 15-17′ of water but a good handful are in fairly shallow water (3-5′).   One technique that is standing out is when we have a high and incoming tide, locate up current from a point that has shell down one or both sides and drift a float rig down the side of the point. Open you bail and let it go! Just be ready to slap that bail shut and start cranking. Live shrimp are working unless the “bait stealers’ peck you off, but we’ve noticed on a couple of trips that mud minnows caught the bigger fish.
