Fall is when the trout start moving back into shallow water from the depths where they spend the summer spawning. Big trout started showing back up on the flats in October. I fished the Steve Yerrid Celebrity Tournament again this year with one of my favorite clients.

The tournament was October 19 & 20th out of the Vinoy, We had a 23 inch trout on day 1 of the tournament and improved that on day 2 with a 28 incher. We took home 1st place trout.

Now that we are moving into winter, the bigger trout are starting to congregate in their winter time spots and we have been catching several trout over 20 inches on most trips.
