Winter Trout At Fountain Bluff

Recommended Posts

Went to fountain bluff this morning to test a spinning-jig rod I recently finished. Not near as many people there as you normally see at james a reed. Most people were bait fishing, I was one of the few jig fishing. Jig fishing was slow but the bait people were doing decent. The average size I saw being caught however was very small. Still better than driving 200 miles just to test a rod on trout.

Yeah, from my experiences you'll see alot more bait fishing than jig fishing. But jig fishing can be very productive and it seems to get better as the winter goes on, maybe because the trout start to see all their buddies getting taken by dead minnows ;)
