I've been fishing the surf for trout my whole life. I bet I haven't caught a dozen trout that were true dinks.

don't get me wrong guys, a lot of big fish come from the surf. i'm a nice guy, but not necessarily a dummy. the old state record came from I believe the flagship pier, galvetraz. There was a time brown cedar surf East Gorda, was one of the highlight of my fishing. Caught dozens and dozens of 4 to 7lb trout in the surf. When I reminisants, and my mind takes me back in time, one of the places I find myself, is the Brown Cedar cut surf. The structure there is a fish magnet. At this time cell phones didn't exist. One of my mentors left me on the beachfront fishing solo more than once, while he would return to the boat ramp to retrieve a friend to join us. Back then you would have to make plans the previous night, so while fishing, he'd tell me I talked to so and so last night, and he wants us to pick him up at the ramp at noon. I'd grab a sandwich and drink from the boat, and tell him I'll be right here when you get back. I'd kick back, have a sandwich and soft drink on the beach, only accessible by boat so I was alone. Then go back to fishing til they got back.

We don't have what we did back then.

There was a time if you found the birds working, easy limits of solid fish, 18 to 22 inches. Now it's dink city under the birds. I've watched a lot of changes in the last 35 plus years of non-stop hard core coastal fishing. It's my passion, we are serious about, so when I make these comments, it's strictly my honest experience, and not in any way meant to be derogatory.

It is a Pink Yozuri hard plastic shrimp with a little additional pink finger nail polish on the tail and a dot behind the head. Trout and reds love it this time of year.

I even caught a black drum on it that day.
I tried again today and my wife got one keeper red and I got an undersized red. It was rough, off colored and the beach was coved in water hyacinth so I guess it was pretty fresh.
Next time maybe.
I try to wear the life jacket in the surf or on any wade I don’t know real well.
I shed it if I am only going knee deep or so on the beach. Unless it is really hot I don’t even know it is there.
I worked in marine construction so I got use to wearing a work vest.
