Trout info for you.....
The best spots for the larger Trout are usually grass flats that are 6 to 8 ft deep. However, today they were a slight bit shallower. At least on the flat that we were fishing. An out going tide helps a LOT to increase the bite.
There will usually be a lot of Ladyfish hanging around in the same area. Ideally, the water should cloudy. 3 to 5 ft visibility seems to be about the best. Clear water is rarely good for a solid bite.
In 6 to 8 ft, a 1/4 oz jig is perfect. Adding a 3" to 4" soft plastic, shrimp imitation tail (or plastic whole shrimp) is the best bait. Us a sharp, twitching action to work the jig. Keep bottom contact. Use dark colored tails in the cloudy water. Use lighter colors if the water is somewhat clear. Look for dirty water if you can see bottom in 6ft, or switch to fishing for Mackerel.
Rootbeer is probably my favorite plastic shrimp tail color.
Good luck buddy!
