Rollover Pass Report, Aug-17 thru Aug-23, 2015

By Ed Snyder/Outdoors
This past week provided plenty of trout action, mainly on the gulf side after the morning tide change from ingoing to outgoing. Pods of shrimp began moving through to the gulf, which attracted sea birds, which then attracted trout hungry anglers. Most of the trout were banana size with one out of seven being a 15 inch keeper, but a few nice 2 and 3 pounders came in as well. Night-shifters had poor to great action depending on where you had your lights; bay-waders had flounder, trout, and redfish activity; day-shifters took flounder, trout, reds, and plenty of croaker; and surf-waders were mostly left begging. The surf-rodders took shark, bull reds, and drum. This weeks angling was great for the most part for trout and croaker.
