We're almost out of the cold embrace of winter, and spring is only a few weeks away! Are you ready for the trout run? The speckled trout, or the spotted seatrout, will soon be out feeding voraciously in shallow water. They'll be searching the bays, inlets, and tidal creeks for crustaceans and minnows.
Specs are fun and easy to catch, and they're one of the tastiest fish in the ocean. The average size in the South is around two or three pounds, but there are also bigger seatrout around - the gator trout.
There are several great baits to use for speckled trout, including some in the natural bait and the artificial bait categories. The best natural bait is live shrimp, hooked through the horn. Small mullet are also excellent for specs.
