White shrimp coming in means big fun with white trout - and some BIGGER surprises!
- by Sonny Schindler, Shore Thing Fishing Charters
Another bonus has been the huge white trout. Some of the deeper holes we fish have been teeming with 12-14 inch white trout! One of my favorite things to do this time of year when the big white trout show up is to clean out the tackle box. Any plastic lures people leave on the boat, or that I don’t use anymore, get used to catch white trout. When they get frenzied, they will hit anything – we’ve caught plenty on bare jig heads.
Another plus of the big numbers of white trout and shrimp has been the big sharks and bull reds. When the white trout get schooled up, more often than not the bull reds and sharks are nearby. Bringing a youngster or a beginner to catch fish as big as they are is something they will never forget.
School will start before too long. Please get the kiddos out to enjoy this outstanding fishing.
As always, have fun and be safe.
