In early May I had a few requests for some inshore fishing. I know from experience that Breton Sound is full of rod bending action in May so we pointed the boat east from Venice for 3 trips in a row. We fished the wellheads and islands with great success catching redfish, black drum, sheepshead, and trout. We caught bull reds at almost every stop, so many that I had guys putting their rods down to rest their arms between fish. A few of the spots were so full of sheepshead that you could see them swimming around the rig legs and we were sight fishing them. We caught as many as I wanted to clean. On the first trip the trout were a little slow only catching a handful all day but by mid May we were catching about 25-30 per trip. Big trout too. One of the days we came across something that I hadn’t seen in a couple years. While riding across the north side of Breton Island, I saw some birds in the distance. I crept up slowly to see if there was any life and before you knew it we were covered in thousands of bull reds in all directions. They were almost running into the boat. We immediately hooked up 4 fish at once. We followed those fish around until everyone on the boats arms were JELLO.
