Catching trout in the bay
Did you know that trout hang right above the grass from 10:00-4:00pm when the sun is bright, the brighter the sun is the deeper in the grass they go, that's why it is very important to let your bait hit the grass bottom to trigger a strike. the best water depth to find trout is 4-5 feet of water with grass, trout love grass, the big gator trout feed in1-2 feet of water when the sun goes down, at night or crack of dawn I have caught big trout in 1/2 of foot of water all most on the bank.
My best baits for trout
Number one would be small pin fish on a popping cork. you don't want your pin fish over 2 inch's.
Number two would be gulp shrimp- new penny color on a jig head, the deeper you are fishing the bigger the weight.
Number three would be a top water popper, 3-4 inch, water temperature must be above 70 degrees for good action
Below is the baits I use.
Tyndall bay in Panama city
This is a one area, that I have caught hundreds of fish all around the point and both sides, if it's trout you want, make sure you stay in 4-5 ft of water. I give you a little secret, Trout will never cross the bay once they enter the bay, they will stay on the side that they came in on and work there way around until they find convert and food. 90 percent of the time a trout live it's life in 2-6 ft of water in grassy area's, bad weather will send them deeper in the grass and in com weather they will roam around for food. I have caught 26inch gator trout in 1 ft of water just before day brake on a 3" popper.
A little bit about wind and current
Instead of me just talking about it, i am going to show you with fishing maps so you will get a better understanding , if hang around with me for a few months you will learn all that I learned in 2 years of fishing every day in a kayak.
wind and current
fishing in wind and current can pay off if you know how to read what is happening to the fish movement, over the next few months I will try and teach you all that I have learned, when you fish every day for 2 years and keep good notes, you start to understand how fish move from weather patterns to current patterns, and how to read what's happening to the fish bite.
Large flats for trout
catching fish is not hard, you must understand what the fish need for living and the conditions must meet there needs or they will keep moving until they find a conferrable area that they can have protection and food.
My video on how I use the mirror minnow
very important you where protection in the sun
I have seen many fisherman, after years in the sun fishing not realizing the sun was damaging there skin and it's not worth getting skin cancer, just protect your self. use arm sleeves and light weight hats, or maybe throw a large beach towel over your legs. you will find the ones I use in the catalog, or just fine in search box.
