Water has dropped to the low 60's high 50's and most of our bait has started to move on. With cooler temps the water is clearing up and trout are in tight schools and redfish are bunching up on the shallow mud flats for some exciting sight fishing. I fished with clients twice last week, first day they boated over 40 trout and dozen redfish, Second day we fly fishing and boated 4 for 7 on the fly with the biggest red being 11 pounds on a clouser, also hit the reef on a light wind day and caught a good mixed bag of fish: spadefish, seabass, sheepshead, triggerfish, and weakfish.
