Today I had the pleasure of fishing with a group from Purvis Mississippi. They were used to fishing fresh water either ponds or rivers but never fished for speckled trout and red fish in salt water. Well even through our weather hasn’t been really great the last couple of days we did have a little break in the rain this morning so we decided to give it a try. I picked them up from the cabins this morning at safe light and we headed to one of our local lakes close to the village and set up on a point that had a good movement of water flowing around it. Well they went to work catching some beautiful speckled trout one after the other. The early morning bite was as through we didn’t have any bad weather for the last three days. Normally when we have lots of rain for three days and the wind blows out of the north for two to three days it will slow the bite down for a while until things settled down. This morning was a exception to the rule, because the had a fantastic time catching there limit of speckled trout while on anchor at that one spot. It is not all the time our charters are so easy as to drop the anchor in one spot and limit out in the month of January. This is the time of the year that it starts to get kind of hard to find the trout all bunched up because the live shrimp have left for the winter and the feed that they are feeding on is scattered all over in the shallow duck ponds as well as the dead end pipe line canals. Because of the live bait that is still left in the shallows for them to feed on is scattered well that reflects how you will find the speckled trout. Well this morning was a exception to the rule because they were feeding on that point we were anchored up on. I was able to keep up with them because it was only a three person fishing charter and the bite was steady. I had plenty of time to be there for the next fish coming to the boat to assist them in getting the fish off the hook and because we was not fishing with live shrimp all they had to do was get back overboard and get ready for the next bite. That is one thing good about fishing plastic this time of the year is that you do not have the extra step of putting a live shrimp on the hood before throwing back over. Believe it or not that takes a lot of time when you are in a good bite and the trout are feeding heavily. Remember when you find the trout feeding heavily as soon as the cork hit the water it goes down they are only going to feed for a certain amount of time before they are full and the bite will turn off like flipping a switch on the wall. That is why it is very important that when you get into a bite like that you stay focus on fishing and not waste any time between pulling one in to the boat, getting him off and getting back into the water for the next one because they are only going to eat so much and when they are full, that is it the bite will stop. I have seen it that we will get into a strong bite and one of the anglers will sit down in the middle of a strong bite to take a break and I tell them that they better get up and continue to fish because we never know how long the bite will last. I don’t mean to be hard on my customers but I also want them to get the most out of the fishing charter. Normally after the fishing trip is over they will come back and tell me that they are glad I told them to get back fishing while the speckled trout were biting because when it was over, it was over.
When we got back to the log cabins again they were very helpful with helping me clean all the speckled trout, wash them, bag them up and ice them down in there ice chest for the ride back home to Mississippi. It was a pleasure fishing with those folks because they had a great time while on the water and learned a lot about why the fish were feeding there at that particular location with the conditions we had for that day. It’s not only putting people on a good speckled trout bite but it is also helping them understand why the fish are feeding at a spot due to the conditions on that day.
