Headed to the marsh the last 2 Saturdays with similar results.
Got to the islands around daybreak and found diving gulls and jumping shrimp in 5 ft of water. Caught and released around 50 11" trout before 6 other boats moved in and staked a claim. Moved to an oyster reef and was able to pick up 10 keepers between 14 and 16 inches. All fish caught on voodoo under a cork (brown shrimp color) or tightlined matrix in several colors.
Got to the islands around 6:45 and again found undersized trout under the birds. Dad and I released maybe 75 with no keepers. Made the same move to the same oyster reef and was able to pick up 8 nice keepers on the tide change on freelined croaker and voodoo under a cork.
Water both weekends was decently clear in spots but still not as salty as we need.
No numbers but 2 great days on the water. The amount of undersized trout out there is unbelieveable. Hoping to get back out there this weekend, wind willing.
