It wasn't a guide trip, just a day off with one of our favorite customers. If you like San Carlos now is the time to get out there for sure. We didn't catch huge numbers 20 - 25 fish, but all but 3 or 4 were solid three and four pounders. Big fish was around six with a couple of fives mixed in the bunch. We caught fish on just about everything we tried except top water. We threw a buzz bait and a Rio Rico to no avail. Cranks, Jigs, Swimbaits, T rig Beavers, and Blades were all working with the biggest fish caught on a Jig. Visibility is about 8 inches and all of our fish were caught between 6 inches and 15 feet, with most bites right on the bank.
Here are some of the baits we used.
Cranks: Lucky Craft Flat CB DR
- Caramel Apple and Chartreuse Rootbeer.
Jigs: Dirty Jigs Skirted Football Jigs
- Olive Blue and Olive Orange 1/2 ounce.
Jig Trailers: Net Bait Baby Paca Craw
- Alabama Craw and Reaction Innovations Sweet Beavers
- Okeechobee Craw
Spinnerbaits: Lucky Craft Redemption Double Willow
- Aurora Black 1/2 ounce.
Swimbaits: Top Shelf Swimbaits
- Electric Bluegill 4 inch.
Texas Rig: Reaction Innovations Sweet Beavers
- Infection, and Okeechobee Craw.
I hope this helps and if anybody has any questions give us a call.
