5:30 - 9:00am, dead calm, rafting mullet, needlefish ambushing shrimp under diving gulls, 3-4ft clarity, 83* on the beach. Shrimpers caught a few schoolie trout, as did the spook clown. No bites on the chartuse tail or shedog, or green catch 2000.

For these conditions, it is slow for trout.

It's been slow all week. High pressure, a full moon, two tide day, and nagging SSW winds.

Same results from 16 Mile Road in Jamaica Beach and San Luis Pass at the water tower. I threw a silver spoon, several mirrolures, gold spoon and several different soft plastics. Kenny nailed it right on with his reply!

nagging SW winds ????? from sargent to freeport.....it's been less than 8 MPH for the past many days...!!!??? I believe the time has reached us where the bite is better at nite.....water hit 86 fast.....high pressure and clear water. Wife and I this morning, Sargent, watched close to a hundred 2-4 foot black tips swim all around and under our boat. Landed a few plus a few bonnet heads........jack crevelles.....BIG whitting...nice sand trout...but surely no specs. Also watched porpose and babies swim and frolic around us. Two of the young ones were no more than a week or less old. VERY small. was still a blessed day !!!!!!!!!!!

Fish were there during primetime in abundance(20 +). Lots of action for about an 1.5 hrs. Only problem was, they were mostly right at the limit or just under it. Still, a very enjoyable session and a few fillets. Started out on east end of isle where the water lacked clarity. Reluctantly left a lot of bait there and headed west after no success. Water was in great shape on west end and that is where I caught them. Nothing early on top, big skipjack on 51 series and trout all on silver spoon. Wind clocked around to the south so I opted for a 3/4 oz. Tomorrow might be a replay. But, probably not for me. Green tides n' black dots!

Ya, i think the sharks had a lot to do with it. The water was good and everything, but the sharks were EVERYWHERE.

I waded the surf (a few miles north of SLP) for the first time in my life on 6/10 and had great results. Got in the water around 8:00 am had a limit of 15-19" schoolies and was back at the beach house by 10:30. I was using a Chartreuse and silver 51 MR. Some waders using live bait were not doing so well. As soon as I got in the h2o I was catching fish.

I saw a few porpoise, but no shark. Last cast of the day I got broken off by something very big. Never saw it or turned it, but it was strong.
