Question for Capt. Ed

Any Trout reports for out around the Trout stake? Haven't been on the water since August and I'm tired of hunting. Do you have shrimp? Thank's in advance.

    Yes we have live shrimp. Trout are being caught around the stake but more around the bars inside. However if you are into silver trout, I went out today with out of towners and hit the barge canal just around bennetts creek and we put 25 silvers in the boat in about an hour. They were all around 14 inches but there was all you wanted and one after another. We were using shrimp on a 1/4 oz leadhead just dropping them down and reeling up a trout on about every cast.
    It will be a sad day when the last little mom and pop marina is gone to developers and only the rich will be able to enjoy the waters of Florida.

    Oh... our shrimp are "boat run" which means all the big ones are NOT removed so we have some very big shrimp.. I was breaking them in half to use them.
