    Default Lots of small fish

    Targeted trout along the ICW and found then biting everywhere. Caught over 30 but only 5 were over 14" and none bigger than 16". All caught on a variety of lures while fishing the last 2 hrs of rising tide, slack tide and first 2 hrs outgoing. It didnt seem to matter much what the tide was doing, they bit consistently the whole time. Swim baits did most of the work and the best colors were anything with chartreuse, bright green, or pink. Caught fish in 1' to 10' of water. Biggest factors seemed to be current and some hard bottom or oyster rock on shoreline.

    Good to hear the bite is still on for your area. Might be getting a little colder out there on the water soon.
