Strategies for catching Speckled Trout
Relatively shallow water such as grass beds, oyster bars, creek mouths, stump fields, drop-offs typically less than 10 feet deep. Look for a school of these fish feeding as it's about finding the fish, not your bait presentation. Spotted trout are ambush predators and will wait for the bait to come to them rather than chase it.

- Peeler crab
- Soft crab
- Live minnows
- Small baitfish
