Fished hard Thanksgiving day till around lunch in the White Oak trying to put the kids on a few trout with no luck at all, not even a nibble. I have fished it quite a bit and have had decent succes in the past with grubs and gulp in the deeper spots on ledges and what not. This year has been totally different with the maority of fish caught coming in 4-6'. The other day did follow a large rain/wind. few mention they had been pushed back. My question is how far back?, the bay?, the ocean? Geez I couldnt even get a spike to bite for the kids. With the nets on the way in,is it worth even going back down for?

Not sure where you fished in the river. The trout could have just gone deeper in the water column or went way up river. With only couple of inches of rain, it shouldn't have pushed the fish far. Mirrolures have ben producing real good, i.e. 17MR in 808 or EC colors.

Sometimes color, sometimes shape, sometimes all type of things mingle together, just have to change lures till something happens, or get a hit and then tweak out a pattern.

I went with a buddy to the new thanksgiving day till around 2:00 we never caught a trout, we fish some spots that have in the last couple of weeks have produce some huge trout, but not on turkey day, my son and I fished the white oak today and we only caught 1 keeper and 2 flounder, but I did see a man catch 5 nice keepers within 50 yards of us, so maybe tomorrow .

Thanks for the input guys didn't think they disappeared that soon, just don't think numbers are there too really wear them out. Just hate I haven't got on them with the honey hole grubs that have done so good for me in the past. The mr17's have been good too, but not my go to lure and a lil harder for the kids to fish.
