- Fish taken with a drift-net.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Boat anglers typically drift-fish along appropriate depth contours to locate aschool.
On a typical winter day when tides are normal, wind is light or moderate and water temperature is 50-55 degrees, one of the best ways to catch West Bay trout is to drift-fish areas where flats in 4-6 feet of water hold scattered oyster shells or small reefs and are adjacent to a channel with slightly deeper water.
