FISHING CONTINUES TO BE HOT OUT OF ECONFINA AND AUCILLA RIVERS!!!
Well folks the trout fishing has been excellent this past month. Even with the waters stained with all the rain we’ve been getting the trout bite has definitely turned on!! The trout have been moving around a little but once you get on them it doesn’t take long to get a limit. Fishing in the 4 to 6 feet depths seem to be producing the most fish during the incoming or outgoing water it doesn’t seem to make much of a difference. Fishing under popping corks using the White Berkley Gulp with the chartreuse tail works absolutely fantastic. Tight lining on bottom seems to dig those trout up that want to stay right on the bottom. Top water action has also picked up in the last couple of weeks with the water temperatures on the rise. The Super Spooks and Top Dog plugs have been a great choice for trout and reds lately also.
The Redfish bite seems to have also kicked it up a bit in the last week or so with a lot of them being over the 27 inch slot limit. Fishing the points and grass line areas using the Top water plugs and gold spoons seems to be doing the trick for most. Remember when fishing for Reds the further you can stay away and still throw to your target the better you will be since these Reds want to spook real easy. There have also been a couple of good schools seen in the last couple of weeks too!! If you can get in the right creek and fish with live shrimp you’ll also catch these reds.
BEST BETS FOR MAY would be to continue to fish the flats under corks in waters between the 5 to 7 feet depth ranges for the trout. Fish the grass lines and points using the top water plugs for the larger sow trout that are still in shallower waters wanting to lay their eggs. Fishing the grass line and points will also produce the reds that are still inside and fishing these areas during the higher tides will also produce fish.
