Fishing from the first of the year to now has been off a little when compared with recent banner years. Warmer than average temperatures hindered success in January and February. It's hard to pattern big trout in cold months when the water doesn't dip below sixty degrees! In March, when the fish typically move shallow and stay there, the numbers were up, though high winds made some days a grind. Persistent brown tide in varying degrees of severity and an often freakishly low tide have also made things difficult at times. Still, it's been a pretty good run. I've logged nearly 100 trout over five pounds in the time frame. Biggest was nearly nine pounds, though the numbers of seven to nine pounders has been lower than the last couple of years. Currently, the big fish are shallow and biting floating Corkys. When we get fishable winds and medium to high tides, the chances for finding wallhangers is definitely there. With the continued drought, we may see the brown tide dissipate or disappear altogether as it has in other years without much rain. Still have plenty of dates available in May and June as of the time of this posting. For the record, nearly 20% of my trout over 29 inches were landed in May.
