Trestles

Rating - Excellent   

Friday, Oct 01 2021
Summer heat and the trestles mix as well as oil and water, but if you target the area around the bridge your options are still open for catching fish. When fishing the trestles in it's important to look at the surrounding area more than the actual bridge. The rock shoreline on the South end of the bridge holds redfish consistently this time of year. No need for live bait just throw your favorite plastics with a 1/8 jig head. Also, the twin Span under the big hump holds great puppy drum and redfish action because of its depths. Fish this area with a drop shot rig and live bait for the best results. Jack Crevalle are not meant for fisherman's plates but they are one of the most exciting fish to fight this time of year. Target these fish by looking for schools of birds and throw a top water bait like a Mirrorlure Shedog and get ready for a drag screaming fight. The plus side is that redfish will mix in with these schools so you can end up in a feeding frenzy as well. The trestles will be back on fire as soon as water temps are down but for now target the surrounding structures.
