Let's just stay and catch a few more...

For about fifteen minutes after we arrived at our first stop of the morning, we didn’t get a bite. My guests were getting antsy and began to ask questions. Their confidence in me was waning and I couldn’t blame them. The water was dirty (six-inch visibility) and really didn’t inspire a whole lot of confidence. To tell the truth, I would have been doubting myself had I not been catching speckled trout at that exact spot for the last three trips. “The fish will bite when the sun clears the horizon and the tide picks up speed”, I explained. The tide was already running fairly strong and the sky was mostly overcast. Then I felt a trout take my soft plastic jig combo and I pronounced, “Fish on”! The first trout was barely a Louisiana keeper and the next one was not much larger. Then the better fish started biting. A seventeen-inch trout then an eighteen incher. It was not fast and furious but steady. As the fish came through where we were anchored, we caught them.
