Fish Bite Turning On

Carol and I were able to get out and do some fishing yesterday afternoon. We launched at the Holley Pointe boat ramp, which was slam full of boaters, and eased across the Nassau River to fish some run-outs. We still had a couple of hours of the outgoing tide and didn't have any real bites so we anchored up at Broward Island and picnicked until the tide slowed. As it reached slack Carol hooked up to a nice, fat 2lb trout that agressivley took her Sure Catch jig with a Gulp root-beer colored mullet. We caught a few more trout and a keeper sized flounder. All of the fish hit aggressively. The water temperature was 73 degrees, up 5 degrees from last week. As we motored into Christopher Creek we noticed some good signs of bait fish along the marsh grass. It looks like the fishing is going to start heating up!
