Tournament Trail Charters Fishing Report

It’s on folks

The weather has terrible this year so far with numerous fronts coming thru with high winds but the water temps are finally close to 70 degrees. Fishing has definitely picked up. Even on days where high winds persist we are catching good numbers of reds on soft plastics, spoons, and spinner baits. Its time to break out the popping corks and go to work. Fish are chewing on the outgoing tide around creeks, ditches, and grass flats as the water falls out. The past week some grown ones have been mixed in with the slot reds.

We have been catching some nice trout, black drum, flounder, and stripers.

Category 5 soft plastics have been the ticket. We had a 50 fish day on Tuesday with most of the fish coming from Cat5 shrimp minnows and manic minnows.
Got a nice striper this morning along with several blues on topwater.
