Brandon Saenz having an incredible December day. We probably caught 15 or so trout in this category, most of them shin to knee deep on full sized topwaters.
You can see the grass strips we were working and most of them held some worthy fish. The majority were heavy 6's & 7's but there were a couple of 8's caught as well.
As the wind picked up (eventually went to 30mph) the bite increased. There is something special about catching trout longer than the water is deep, especially when they are blowing holes in the water as big as a trash can lid.
Dec. 13th, day after a full moon, two days after a norther with the return of onshore winds.
