Spring is here, with new colors in the woods and turkey gobbles. Sea trout are my favorite inshore fish, especially Big Bend sea trout. They thrive in healthy waters and excellent sea grass environment. Speckled searout can be caught on rock piles and rocky points during low tide, using a D.O.A. 5.5 glow jerk bait.
Using a popping cork rig during rainy weather can increase fish on the line, especially as the Gulf of Mexico heats up. Use a 20lb. leader tied to the cork to prevent tangling and use a jighead and soft plastic bait. Cast the rig ahead of the boat's drift and give 2-3 good pops.
Florida's new fishing regulations for sea trout will benefit all anglers, with a reduction from 5 fish per angler to 3. The rule will enhance the Big Bend trout fishery, allowing for more big female trout and reducing captains' take. The new rules will help guide clients and protect the trout fishery.
To catch sea trout in cold Gulf waters, anglers should use natural heated areas like mangrove keys and limestone rock bars. Poling and using a glow jerk bait can help find fish in shallow water. A 3/0 live bait hook and loop knot can also be effective.
The MirrOlure Provoker is a popular bait for Fall trout fishing on the Nature Coast. It's a soft plastic bait with a scent and can be fished weedless, jig head, and under a cork. Targeting hard bottom and rock grass flats, it's best at 3 feet depth with a breeze and outgoing tide. The bait is rigged with a popping cork.
