Jumping Trout?
« on: November 09, 2018, 11:58:58 AM »
Trying to figure out what would be causing Trout to be jumping in mass (relatively speaking)?

Was fishing along the banks of First Landing and every now and then there would be a surge or what appeared to be 10-14" trout jumping a foot or so out of the water right along the grass.

Are they jumping because they are chasing bait or are they jumping because they are bait?

Are you sure these weren’t mullet?

Not sure, I can not say for certainty what they were.  At the time the assumption was trout because they  looked to be about the same size and shape as the trout we were catching right there.

However, I had not considered mullet.  That seems very possible.

I no this post is old but for people who do not no. Blue fish and Stripers will eat trout especially that size (12-14) I grew up in the OBX. I have seen schools of blues chasing trout up on the beach. You literally can just go grab them off the beach.
