Fishing a “Restricted” Canal for Speckled Trout

Fishing a “Restricted” Canal for Speckled Trout


what’s up everybody it’s about four
o’clock in the afternoon today we were going after a big big sea trout… just
kidding honestly I’ll take anything that’s bitting, the last couple of days I’ve
gone out on the Indian River I have been completely skunked
so anything ex cept for a possibly catfish my arch-nemesis forever. I got my
lucky crappie hat on let’s go! oh I had three fish follow it up Oooh, I Just got another hit. That’ll do it. Got one! Little one little squeaker ahhhhh yea So pretty Bye buddy, thank you for your service I think it’s cuz the winds blowing
around that corner So they are probably ambushing Oooh, almost got another one some literally just ticked it
like a hundred times right at the boat got another one Oh a little lady fish maybe? little lady fish I keep poking them in the same spot oooo buddy oh thank you That is a much better
much better sea trout so the secret is if I let it sink a little bit and
then start reeling see seven feet It seems like I’m getting more strikes if I
like wait a second It’s a better one It’s a nice trout Yaaaaa! Woo! i just missed them ooo got a good hit Brother! Missed. 0 for 2. That’s a bomb cast, for this little thing ooo that just came off haha There we go! Got em! Gotcha that time buddy! Ohhh, off at the boat! That was a nice trout too, I just lost it at the side of the boat Oh got one! Right under the tree. ooh nice fish! nice fish! it’s a redfish! ah!!!! Dood, that was a big red! Ahh Because the tip wasn’t strong enough on this pole To set the hook That’s why I use those stronger
power rods. it’s sitting right there in the shade yea, it was a big redfish Set the drag a little tighter, maybe? You just got to set the hook on em
really hard he’s was just laid up right there in the
shade Man a big ol redfish That’s the third time, right at the boat another little dinker this one of course
it’s not gonna shake out for me after we’ve lost three at the boat he swallowed it Another nice small trout! They are inhaling these things he’s not even hooked I don’t think there we go that’s gonna be a redfish! it was deep in there…ahh that’s a trout it’s a nice trout It’s a bit better trout well I think the water is so cold I
think that’s why this little ones doing so well they eat little things when it’s cold Water tempature is 73, it warmed up a few degrees back here hmm nice little guy. Slimer I guess that’s the way it’s gonna be today oh yea, that’s a pretty good one a nice small one floppy fish they’re definitely the
deeper parts here especially since all the wind current is
coming out of here too yeah I just wanna know where they go
when they get older you know all right everyone it’s a couple days
later actually just got home from work had my formal observation today as a
teacher I’ve had some time to edit the video a little bit I just wanted to do
an outro to reflect on what’s going on in this video and why I think it was
working well that day so I actually had a couple of bad days fishing before that
I spent the whole afternoon in the Indian River around a creek that I
thought was gonna produce really well with some deep water I ended up drawing
a complete strike not even catfish so today we sucked at Banana River I didn’t
want to go too far from where my home base is in case we got skunked again so
it’s four hours of fishing that we can condensed down into this video I wanted to treat it like a charter I think I’m gonna start doing my trips like that
like half-day charters are four hours so I’m gonna start fishing probably four
hour segments and then just releasing them as fishing reports onto what I find
so a couple of things first of all I’m not gonna do a spot dissection this time
mostly because I’m still a hundred not 100% sure if you can even fish in the
area that I was fishing but if you live here locally you’ll probably recognize
it immediately I think the entrance to the place is
fine I think there’s a couple shots where we’re back in the marina and I got
yelled at and we just made our way back to the front and seems fine the reason
why I say it’s fine it’s because I saw that there’s places to actually fish and
collect your line and stuff like that so if anyone has recognizes the area and
knows whether or not it’s okay to fish there let me know and then in the future
I’ll go back and do a spot dissection all right so as far as what worked and
what didn’t work I had a gulp swimbait on it seemed that at first I was casting
too fast and I needed to let it sink down for a few seconds before I started
working the bait and that’s what definitely drew the most strikes with
these trout the trout were hitting in the deeper areas about seven feet and
then that one redfish that I had that lost in mine didn’t know what to do with
my hands because I was blocking the whole thing and you can’t really see but
that actually hit right in the shadow off a bank in the
by the mangroves so I believe that was the recipe for today was the trout we’re
staying deep so getting that deeper channel it seems like as soon as the
lure dropped down and you did the first twitch the next set of twitches is when
they were striking I did manage to get one lady fish and again it seems like
the two coolest fish I mean I can’t say coolest the two fish that we’re
different than the 15 or so trap that I caught
ended up being my hands were in the camera so I apologize for that I’ll
definitely try to work on that in the future a couple things to point out
before we go I got to use some different hooks other than those gulp jig heads
they’re one eighth ounce jig heads which we’re working great but I kept bending
the hooks on them the other thing is is I needed to use my stronger power pole
this is a super light tip and when it came to the hard head of that red fish
it just could not set the hook hard enough on him he was too big and then
the third point is I didn’t catch any catfish whatsoever so boom take that
catfish I’ll see you guys in the next video
spring break is coming up for me so I should be posting hopefully a couple of
videos and then a few weeks after that we have summer coming up so hopefully
there’ll be a lot of fishing during the summer all right like/subscribe
take it easy peace
