So proud of my crew today for not giving up! Pulled away from the Reel Inn this morning with Brad Denson and his buddies Jeff and Peter on board with winds already blowing 15-20 mph knowing it would be tough. I realized at the first stop I needed to throw my plan out and start over. We tried hiding from the wind but, with the warmer water tempts the trout backed out of the marsh se we had to work the lake in the wind. Amazingly we found birds diving in the white capd but not many keeper trout under the birds. Kept fighting the wind and moving till we found bigger trout and fished hard and ended up with a good catch in ant condition much less windy conditions! This is the first time I ever seen the bite get better as the conditions got worst?
With 50 trout, 2 reds and a drum in the K2 we had enough and headed in. Matrix Shrimp Creole under the new Matrux cork did it all today. Can’t thank my crew enough today for fishing as hard as they did!
