Mason & Petty Creek

Fished parts of Mason & Petty Creeks yesterday. The trout were in most places I fished. Caught over a dozen in a few hours and the size varied from small to around 17".  Around 6 were legal size but all were released. Also picked up a snook in the 23 inch range. Mainly used soft plastics.  Water temp was around 57 degrees.  Outgoing tide.  The prop didn't hit anything, so it was a good day :>)

    I've fished Masons from the west with an experienced local that used to be a part of this forum, and I've also fished TO the west from the ramp, 4 experiences in total and all were productive.

    Yep, always makes for a better day, even if the catching is off. I'm still am on to fish with you.. I'm waiting until this current upcoming cold front moves away. The fish don't mind it as much as I do.
