John Grantham, Steve Lee and I launched our canoes at the Golden Meadow public boat launch on December
15, 2002. We caught 20-30 speckled trout within 30 yards of the launch. A black version of Mike LaFleur's
Charlie fished deep produced the most fish. John and I fished floating lines and Steve fished a sinking line. Steve
caught more fish with the sinking line, but I caught the larger trout on the floating line. After John and I left, Steve
caught a few more trout and a couple redfish in the dead end canals around the launch area.
