I can remember going with my dad back in the 80’s during hot summer.Putting in at out fall canal doing a 18 minute run 180 degrees on compass and jigging with sting silver and catching lots of nice trout. I haven’t done this since . Is anyone still doing this ,that was lots of fun. Chime in

You could catch the occasional gray trout but those were mostly specks. I remember all too well jigging the deep holes in the Pamlico during the summer and filling coolers with nice 20-25 inch specks. Those days are gone, unfortunately. The trout are still there albeit not as plentiful and of course now there are limits so filling a cooler takes four fishing...but hey, those were the good old days!

You can still keep up to one gray trout > 12" now...kind of like stripers except one gray trout isn't going to feed the family!

I don't target Grey Trout aka Weakfish but what I've been seeing posted on Instagram are really quality fat fish.
In the 20" plus range........ ICM
