Spring temperatures turn the bite on.

Spring temperatures and a last full moon brought Tampa Bay a killer batch of trout.  I’m seeing record numbers in the Fort Desoto area.   We are fishing the outside edges of flats in 3-4 feet of water on the low tides and up on the banks or islands on high water.  It’s great to see this fish coming back in our bay after a rough couple of years.   Fish are quality size-wise as well and eating surface baits.  Today we caught at least 40 trout in the 17-23 inch class with one pushing the 25 inch mark.   Look for the bite to continue to stay strong through May.
