It’s that time of the year. Here are some pointers as to what kind of birds you are looking for to find hordes of speckled trout stacked underneath. If you haven’t read it, then take a gander at When Should You Fish The Birds?
Take a look at the video below of liar birds at the Crash Intersection in Hopedale.
Ahh…everyone’s favorite! There’s nothing like our winged brethren, screaming across the sky, hollering out to everyone willing to lend an ear that there be that blessed stock of the sea in the water below them! I am talking about seagulls diving on shrimp. These same shrimp are usually driven to the surface by a feeding frenzy of another popular saltwater denizen, speckled trout.
It's hot out, but that didn't keep us from finding a load of redfish.
Summer is in full swing and this time of the year fish are doing very particular things that can only be associated with the hot weather. Knowing how the weather affects fish will play a huge role in your understanding of their biology and how you can use that to be an effective fisherman.
I think it’s the small things, the details. I can pull up to a great trout bite and put ten more trout in the boat than someone else. I can fish a slow trout bite and have just as many more hit the ice. What are some of these things that I do? Read on and see.

That is what this post is all about. It’s about getting the job done with only what is necessary. A good example that flies in the face of this notion would be the failure of the Federal government. Despite having it all with lavish funding and endless power, they still manage to muck everything up. And this principle very much applies to fishing.
