Thousands of legal migrants have evaded the shores of the Mississippi Gulf Coast….Just in time for spring break let the fun begin!!!
The rather small but scrappy and great eating white trout and ground mullet have showed up…Swarming in large schools hungry for most any bait that hits the water….The water temperatures have reached the mid-60s a little early but all the migratory fish are starting to show up…These fish are fairly small most in the poundish range but can really tussle on light tackle…You can make quick work of them in an hour or so, good fast action and they are really tasty…One of the better fresh frying fish along the Gulf Coast… Great for some of the younger kids…I still love catching them myself…
White trout hit like a freight train….Ground mullet shaped like a red just have amazing power for a smaller fish… I know a lot of people are looking for the big fish and of course the reds and black drums are still here and biting as they are year-round…
The first few trips of March we’re producing some nice speckled trout, flounder and now with the addition of the ground mullet and white trout we should really start heating up.. I’m adventuring out to the Barrier Islands few days next week… I’m predicting cobia, sharks and mackeral by end of March..
Still quite a few release trips.,..Which I must say that 1 mess of white trout and ground was delish so thank you… Most any of the oyster reefs in the bay or just offshore will be stacking up with ground mullet and white trout. Any piece of cut bait, squid, shrimp or most anything will do once you get them in a frenzy then the fight is on….
SO COME ON DOWN AND JUMP ABOARD THE WHIPASNAPA AND LET’S GO HOOKEM UP!!!
PEACE AND REEL GREASE
