Time : 5 am - 9 am
Last night I was wondering what I should do for my birthday and instead of a night out on the town I opted for an early morning session. The wind was coming at about 10mph out of the SSE with a slight outgoing tide.
I arrived at the launch and was in the water by 5:15, the plan was to fish a few lights before sunrise and then hit some points.
As I approached the first light I could see bait activity a began throwing a glow vudu shad.
For the next hour I was getting bumps on just about every cast but you could tell they were dinks. Pullled in two that couldn’t have been more than 10 inches. I was ready for something other than drinks come sunrise so I began the pedal to my first spot. Upon arrival I can see minor bait activity and begin to throw. Within about 20 minutes I had my first keeper in the boat at 7am.
Strangely enough, after I landed this guy I couldn’t get touched for about 30-40 minutes, so I changed lures. Funny story, the plastic that I put on I found in my grandpas old bass lure collection after he passed that has to be at least 10 years old. I’ve never heard of the company, but they are “Charlie’s Worms”. It is a slow sinking twitch bait, and as soon as I put it on I was getting smoked on every cast.
I need up landing anywhere from 15-20 trout in the 14-15 range and hit a triple limit by 9am. I ended up bringing home a limit of trout all 16-18”. What an awesome start to my 28th birthday.
