If any of you want to come to the coast and enjoy some non-stop action, now is the time to do it.  The Speckled Sea Trout are thick in the sounds and the creeks.  Almost any oyster bar with clear, moving water is holding trout now.

Fresh sauteed sea trout with chili/lime rub, smoky cheese risotto and garden salad with balsamic dijon vinaigrette dressing.

I normally fish spinning tackle for trout.  One of my favorite rigs is a popping cork with a clear gold or silver flake DOA shrimp under it. There were times last week when there was a fish on every cast.  The live shrimp fishermen are also catching tons of fish.  The trout fishing doesn’t get any better than it is right now.

For flies, chartreuse and white clousers are working fine.  Blue and white bait fish patterns are also working well.  White and Tan gurglers will catch fish on top.

With the new moon tides coming up this week, the water will get muddy.  If you can find clear water, the trout will still be there, but the tides Thanksgiving week will be better for trout fishing.  If you want to catch a “mess” of fish, now is the time to do it,
