Launch out of the Pass harbor a little after daylight. Had been waiting around for the lightning to get out of the area. Thought we would check out in front around the Pass Yacht Club pier and as soon as we poked the nose of the boat out of the harbor we seen the birds. to say it was on would be an understatement. The birds stayed around the pier all morning and was still working when we left at 11. Ended up with a 2 man limit up to about 3-3.5 pounds. I have no idea how many trout we actually caught counting the throw backs but it was a lot, I mean a lot!!! Most of the keeper specks were caught on the TTR11 mirrolure I fish all the time. My buddy caught some keepers on his chartreuse cocahoe but the Mirrolure was the ticket for the keepers. Tide was falling pretty good too. Wind ran us off the spot for about 1.5 hours and we bumped around in the harbor and picked up a good speck. The harbor is full of white trout right now. Willie caught one white trout in the harbor that was an easy 2 pounds. As soon as the wind laid we were back out and on the specks again. The trout had shrimp jumping every where. Seen a lot of healthy looking, big crab swimming all over the place too. It was good to see possibly thousands of 10"-12" class trout still out there alive and apparently well for the future. Seen no oil unless you count all the diesel and gas all the boats are leaking into the harbor. We had the trout ice down really well so I didn't want to dig them out of the ice to take any pictures. There is a reef straight out of the harbor and it had about 100 birds working on it too all morning. Not sure what kind of fish they were working though.
