The last flash freeze we had in 2010-2011 frenzied our fish and depleted our sea trout population. Nature has a way of over bounding after natural events like this. The trout fishing that our human population in the Lowcountry has seen the last 3 or 4 years has been phenomenal. Hell, inshore fishing in general has been really good these few years. Our watershed has a natural ebb and flow of good seasons and bad, and it is only natural for these last few to crest.
Yes, every species of inshore population was affected. Belly up redfish and trout caught too far up a creek, frozen mangrove snapper who lost their way to the ocean. But as they say in all sorts of scenarios, there are a lot of fish in the sea. And they are all hungry.
