Default Trout bite has been silly

Gentlemen,
The trout bite has been pretty good the last couple of weeks even into this past weekend with the monster tides. A buddy and I had a trip on 10/28 where we landed 90 trout on artificials after we decided we needed to get an accurate count.

The sheep are around as well. After smoking the trout, we chased sheepshead on 10/29 in the 25kt west wind and managed to land a quick dozen up to 7 lbs.

Hopefully, this nor'easter blows through quick and we'll be able to get back on the fish before the water temps drop too much.

On to the pics. Side note: You know the sheepshead drop is top secret when the cameras can't come out until you get to a gas station down the road... LOL!!

The fish schools should get tighter and tighter. I'll catch them all winter, but I won't say where.
I've heard to keep looking up further up river certain places. Fish days with a low tide in the late morning so the mud can absorb the sun. The incoming water should be a little warmer on these flats...

We were getting on schools. If we came to the right current break, mound, or run out, we caught several and would slow down. No exaggeration, we only fished about 4 or 5 spots. One of those spots was about a 100 yard bank, and another was about a 50 yard piece of bank. If you can find the school, you can get right quick.
