The water had warmed into the mid 50s after a cold front knocked it down ~50 degrees. Are trout still in their “thunder bunker” where I caught them before? Or somewhere else?

The Fishing Trip
Early Morning Idle Down Geoghegan Canal
The boat launches just as early as the duck hunters. It’s cold outside!
A Little Graphing Plus Skunk is Out
It’s always a relief catching that first fish when things are slow.
More Grinding Plus a White Trout
It’s tough working this hard for fish. I’m warning you now, it can be painful to watch!
Grind, Grind and More Grinding Finally Yields a Trout
The fishing isn’t panning out as I thought it could, but I don’t stop casting!
Another Trout + Getting Some “Play”
I say getting some “play” but it’s more like the perfect recipe to waste time sitting in one spot.
Catch a Few More + Decision to Leave
The Time Vampire has nearly sucked the day dry, and a move must be made.
Arrive to Trestles
The move was made, it’s time to assess the conditions, drop the trolling motor and break out the Pontchartrain Pop.
Move South of Draw, First Trestles Trout in the Boat!
Catching makes for some confidence after getting my butt kicked all morning.
Putting More Trout in the Boat
It’s not a slam fest, but it’s better than the endless grind back at Geoghegan Canal. The Pontchartrain Pop is consistently putting trout into the boat.
Steady Applicaton of Pontchartrain Pop = Winning
It’s consistent enough that I feel the trout are figured out, just gotta keep making high quality casts.
