INSHORE SALTWATER FISHING
Speckled trout are known to strike at artificial lures such as soft plastic baits, topwater plugs, and jigs.
Use a medium-action spinning rod and reel combo with a 10-15 lb monofilament or fluorocarbon line.
Polarized sunglasses will help you see speckled trout in shallow waters and reduce glare.
Speckled trout are opportunistic feeders that will eat a variety of prey, including shrimp, crabs, mullet, and menhaden.
Sea trout are most active during the warmer months, with peak fishing occurring from spring through early fall.
They are known to inhabit grass flats, channels, tidal creeks, oyster bars, and nearshore structures like jetties and piers.
