Halloween bite

Report Date: October 31, 2019

Fished Tom and Chris today. We started early to try and fish the lower part of the big tide we had again today. Had a well full of live shrimp, and fished them mostly under the popping corks. We hit 3 or 4 drops on low incoming that I usually catch fish on, with only 3 or 4 small trout to show for our efforts. Ran to a bank as the water began to get to the grass, and got into some fish. A good trout bite developed, and they ended up putting 15 in the boat, along with 2 Redfish and a big Bonnethead. The water temps are still around 74, and we even saw a tarpon on a drop. Pretty unusual for almost November. Chris had a pig of a redfish up in the grass, although it measured 27 inches, it pulled the boga scale to 9 pounds. A really fat redfish. I'm ready for these big tides to subside and the water clean a little and cool off. Should have an awesome November/December to finish off what has been a very good year for catching.
