[nggallery id=844]My wife Barbara and I, out daughter Amanda Flynn and our frinened Lisa Bickert along with Amanda’s lab, Odessa and our puppy, Mulligan braved cold temperatures, winds and waves to make a run to Turtle Bay, Fl to catch some “cold-front” spotted sea trout.
All of us were cold, but we still managed to catch lot’s of scrappy sea trout using the Rapala spinning outfits loaded with Sufix 832, 10 & 15 lb. braid and equipped with 20 lb.Sufix fluorocarbon leaders. Our lures of choice were the TriggerX Paddle Tail Minnow fished on an 1/8 oz. jighead. We started by casting and swimming our TriggerX Minnows at normal speed, but quickly figured out that the trout were less active and feeding closer to the bottom and as soon as we started letting the jig swim to the bottom inbetween our “lifts”, we started hooking fish.
To aid us in staying on top of a school of trout we used the Minn Kota Talon to immediately anchor us and stop us from drifing with the strong winds.
Winds should be lower tomorrow and we hope to get out on the Gulf to catch some tasty bottom fish for dinner.
