July 20-22

I can’t say the weather will be the same this weekend but with the overcast rainy conditions, I’ve done well with seatrout. Moving water and questionable weather is best. Trout are low light feeders so clouds with a choppy surface are best. On a moving, tide position the drift of your vessel towards or away (depending on wind direction) from some outside point like Mangrove or Chassahowitzka. A popping cork with a dark colored jig will get the bite. Some of the trout we caught were dark in color or tannin stained and the larger trout were very silver in color indicating that they have moved in from offshore. There are a few patches of rock grass near these points.

The scallops are holding out even with plenty of folks out every day harvesting them. I’ve done well out near the Bird Rack. High incoming tide will be late morning this weekend and a late afternoon low.
