I went out Sunday about 2-6 pm. The water was nice and clear and calm. Caught nothing at the inlet using a spoon. Caught a jack and trout on the island across from Christensen boat ramp using same spoon Johnson gold spoon..

Was a good day .!!

    what kind of retrive are you using when throwing the spoon? Good job on the trout and jack!

    I tried different types, constant but slow , fast and bouncing off the bottom. The most effective was constant but slow.

    That gold spoon is an inshore killer in my opinion. It will catch every thing that swims in this area, including trout,snook,reds,mangrove snapper. I was 1 for 2 on reds Sunday. Lost the 1st one after he actually pulled my 16 foot skiff about 10 feet into the mangroves. He was amazingly strong! He won his freedom! I caught a nice 22 incher with no spots a few minutes later to complete a slam for the day. Most fish came on the gold spoon! Got a 20" jack earlier on 2lb test. I use a steady retrieve, just enough to keep it above the bottom.
