I headed north today in search of speckled trout. The water temperature was 55 degrees. the wind was west at about 5. After four hours of casting I landed the first speckled trout of the season. I hope this is a sign fishing is going to pick up in the next week. The same guys continue to catch a few keeper stripers a tide from the beach. Hint stay far away from any dredging operation both on the beach and the back bay or at lest get well up tide.
