Saltwater Speckled Trout Fishing

Trout will hang out in sandy depressions in the flats to find some warmer water on a cold day, making these good saltwater speckled trout fishing locations in the winter. Keep an eye out for clean water, and use lures that are loud – noise tends to catch the attention of trout.

If you aren’t looking for large fish, a good bait to use for saltwater speckled trout fishing is live medium shrimp. These will attract medium sized trout as opposed to the giants that bite on full sized fish. Keep in mind, though, that when you do go saltwater speckled trout fishing, you should not plan for a catch and release trip. These fish are not well suited for catch and release, as they are not as durable as the redfish they are closely related to. If you do decide to release any of these, you should touch them as little as possible and use special devices for the release to maintain as little damage as possible.

Saltwater speckled trout fishing is a fun pastime, but it’s specialized, and there are a lot of things to keep in mind in regards to your gear, the place you choose to fish, and the time of year you plan to fish.
