Chasing Dots CHARTERS

Captain Alan

May, it is one of my favorite times of year the weather is starting to calm down, the water temps have made it to high 60’s low 70’s. The fish have followed the bait back out to the islands, it’s like the entire ecosystem comes alive!! Trout are in my crosshairs this month, it’s all about the finding the grass beds and large schools of mullet. This is a killer combination for catching big trout this time of year.

My go to lure is a Paul brown SD-18. Three twitch pause method gets their attention and lures them out of the grass beds. They love it as you can see in the photos! I work the lure so that it sinks during the pause to the top of the grass bed. This lure sinks at 1ft per second, so pay attention to the water depth. Top water lures are my second favorite choice. Use it early morning when you can’t really see what’s going on under the water.

Don’t be afraid to throw it in the middle of the day as well as the early

morning. We have caught a lot of good fish during the middle of the day on top water lures. I have also lost some big fish this time of year to the TAX MAN (sharks). I truly enjoy teaching people how to fish the shallows for trout. So give us a call and we will take you on a trip of a life time.

SALTWATER THERAPY CUSTOM CHARTERS

CAPT. MARCUS MCDAVID

The month of May kicks off wade fishing season for me at the islands.  My choice of baits is a #8 Skitterwalk in chartreuse..  This will be the only bait i carry with me.  There is nothing quite as exciting as a big trout blowing up on a top water in knee deep water over the grass beds. 

And don’t let people tell you that topwater is only good for first thing in the morning or late in the evening.  We regularly catch limits mid-day on them at the islands.

Also don’t be afraid to cover some ground.  A lot of people will get out and will only walk 50 yards from the boat and give up.   I regularly end up well over a mile from where i parked the boat.  You have to keep moving until you find the fish.
