This may sound odd to most, but I can’t wait for winter. This spring and summer has been good for trout and flounder I’ve had a couple September limits for trout, but sadly I can’t say the same about redfish. I only got out once last winter and it was at the beginning of feburary. I walked in and waded jumbile cove. There were two waders already fishing the drop off that I wanted to fish so I moved further down the gut right infront of the geotubes. I caught a nice trout and redfish and also lost a big flounder. I was throwing corkies all day that day. The two waders further up the drop off which basically in the middle of the cove were killing the trout and redfish. It seemed like every cast they took ended up with a trout of 20” or more. They said they had released a 29” trout before I had gotten there. I know that that’s not going to happen all the time out there but that still gets me excited. I also hope that for a couple of weeks it gets really cold to where the blue hole in offats could start holding some huge trout. Jumbile cove and the blue hole will be my two main winter spots. Jumbile when it’s either a few days after a cold front or before a cold front when it’s a nice high 50s to low 60s degree day. I will most likely fish the blue hole when it’s a really cold day. If anyone has any other good winter walk in wade spots or place I can get to from the yak in galv west bay that would be greatly appericiated(not asking for honey holes). I honestly just particularly love winter for the fact that your chances of catching a bigger trout or even a gator trout go up. I can’t be the only one that’s alittle excited for this especially since we’re getting into the really hot days of summer. But don’t get me wrong I’m still excited for what October holds because i know the marshes and the flats are great that time of year. But I’m especially excited for winter though!
