Big Trout Fishing with Brett Norris


Even though I only had a few hours of sleep after getting back from the IGFA banquet last night(8 hours round trip) I wanted to go fishing today. Captain Brett Norris tells me he has been on some big ones. I got a 28″ one yesterday that he won a local tournament with. West coast big trout are usually tough to come by so I wanted to get out there at least for a few hours to try my luck.

I was glad that 10am was the meeting time for the right tide.

We manage to get on the trout for a bit but the monster did not show today. If they were in fact there, the dirty water from the 20mph winds definitely did not help our cause today. All was not lost however, we did get a couple nice trout for our efforts. The gator will have to wait for another day.

Brett tells me we need to come back next week when the conditions and tide will be a bit better.
