With a steady 10-15 mph north wind, we decided to take our chances down south of SA Bay. Days like this one with cloudy skies, and cool temps had us all hoping for some big trout action. Our first couple wades came up with just a couple solid trout and a few nice reds. Then by mid-morning as the sun tried to peak out, bait fish became more active, pelicans were crashing the shorelines, and the bite turned on.
We found a windward pocket chalked full of bait, and within minutes from exiting the boat was hooked up. Many trout were in the 18-20″ range and several mid-slot reds, then a few cast later a big girl showed herself, inhaling a Corky Softdine. No, it wasn’t a 30″ trout, but a very respectable 5# 26 incher. After a few pictures and releasing her, we decided to end on that note and get back to watch some college football. Great group of guys and a fun trip, wading thigh deep water throwing Down South Lures in plum/chart, red/white, and the Corky Softdines.
