I'll start off November with a nice success story!
Got out early this morning.. ok in the middle of the night. Left Richmond at 2:45 and was on the water by 4:30. I had initially planned to go after gator trout on a popular flat, but nothing was going on there. Headed to a spot with some deep pilings around 5:30 and caught an absolute bruiser striper at 26" on my first cast. By far the fattest striper I've caught to date. Ended up catching 3-4 more nice slot size fish until just after sunrise and the bite shut down. Found some fishy looking grass lines and picked up some rat reds, and another low slot striper.. moved on to a spot close to the ramp as the winds and dark clouds moved in and was pleasantly surprised when I nailed a 24" pup. Nasty weather set in and I was back to the ramp by 10. Drove home in the pouring rain, happy that I had caught some nice fish!
