    We couldn't buy a good bite last week, now I know where they were.  Wish I was there for our trout tourney.  LOL

    I am no Trout Hater, but man alive...   These past ten days or so have been ridiculous...

    Trout have been EVERYWHERE.  I can't escape them.  Every spot, with every lure...  It's just insane...

    Today I had a mom and dad with their six year old son aboard - and it's hard to say just how well big, fat trout - that eat anything in front of them are for young 'uns on their first trip to the Everglades...  Set up an Equalizer cork with a 1/0 or 2/0 hook and a shrimp and you're in business all day long....  and yes the big trout are over on the Flamingo side as well... Our best yesterday was a 24" fish fresh in from the Gulf.  In a month or two you'll be hard pressed to find a decent trout so enjoy it while you can.

    I'll post a proper report in a day or two with lots of pics...

    Those trouts were lovin' the  topwater Rapala yesterday morning.  Fished out front and got tired of catching, went fishing a couple of bays back but the water was too high for me to find any.  Pulled the trailer out of Goodland by 1215, it was already a circus at Stans...
