big trout

Report Date: May 9, 2019

Had a fun day on the water with Drew and his dad Ron. Started on a redfish drop and Drew put a small trout and then a 7 lb Redfish in the boat. Hit a couple more drops with nothing, then got on a trout bite. They caught 16, using a mud minnow under a cork and the new Egret bait, The Vudu Vixen 3 inch shad in Pearl/chartruese tail. Matches our current bait perfectly. Fourteen of the 16 were really nice big trout, with several around 3 lbs. Also had a ladyfish and one bluefish to end up the morning. Look forward to having them back on the boat again.
