While April usually doesn't rival November for shear numbers of speckled trout, we did manage to eak out a few limits
between cold, wind, rain, and dirty water. I think we caught and released more larger trout this April than we did the last few years for sure...(I've been getting reports and PM's that a lot of folks have been seeing larger fish as well). William Sammons (topless) probably caught the biggest with me this April (he's notorious for that) and Charlie (double fisted) pulled out a fire tiger jig to pull up some hefty weakies out at "F" reef. Almost all trout this spring were caught with lipped divers, DOA shrimp, and live shrimp floated in deep holes at low tide. (We lost a few beauties on the artificials as well...they just don't inhale them like the livey's) May looks to be outstanding with some good clean water between 5/2 and 5/22. I am working on a fishing calender for May that will be kind of a "prime timer" of sorts...if we ever get off the water long enuff!
