Fish are on the move, and being adaptable is the key to great catches now.
- by Sonny Schindler, Shore Thing Fishing Charters
We have not been making long runs due to the steady stream of storms. It has not put too much of a damper on our fun, though. The important thing is not spending too much time in one area.
If you are working an area for 10-15 minutes and not having any bites or seeing any signs of life (shrimp, minnows, diving birds), MOVE. Some days the fish seem to hold on the reefs. Other days it’s the bridges, and other days it’s the shorelines. Please don’t be afraid to move.
Some of the better trout bites we have seen have been in deeper water (8-12 feet). That’s not to say early morning and late evening bites over shallow water (2-4 feet) won’t work. Again, when it’s not working, MOVE and keep moving till you find something good.
As always, have fun and be safe.
