<p>Non stop action on trout this AM. The fish were piled up on a flat and my guests got into them in the 13-17" class. The fish wanted live shrimp carolina rigged and hooked through the tail. The artificial cocahoe in the smoke color put a whooping on the live. When we were on them, all of my guests had switched over to the artificial even though we had plenty of live bait left. Strange tide this morning, none early, then a slight rise which soon slacked. The trout just moved from the flat to the deeper water. Finished up the trout and hit a few red holes and picked up some redfish, black drum and flounder at each spot to round out the ice chest. We hit points and windward coves on the edge of the bay. These fish wanted live/dead shrimp 2' under corks and again the artificial stole the show. Nice weather today, hot but plenty of cloud cover and a little wind to keep it cooler. Sunday is the tide turn around with minimal range, but it will pick up during the week. Good luck out there!
