The Speckled Trout holds strong out of Shell Beach

Brad, Pat, and Brian took a boat ride with me out of Shell Beach, La with speckled trout on the brain. This crew was ready and so were the specks. The fishing was hot and steady from the second the Campo’s live shrimp hit the water. With the 13 rods bent and the Fins stretched…


Speckled Trout fishing never gets old

Robin, a great client of mine, brought Zac and Alec down fishing for another speckled trout smack down. I pulled up on the same reef I fished the previous day and the shrimp and glass minnows were everywhere. As soon as the frisky Campo’s live shrimp hit the water, a speckled trout was there to…


An ice chest full of speckled trout

A One Stop Shop with the Grimaldi Family

Three old friends do it again!

A Hail Mary and a box of fish!

Seth Thompson and his family put a smack down on the speckled trout in the Sound. The day started off slowly and we caught nothing but catfish and small croakers at each stop. After about a half dozen stops, I threw a Hail Mary and fished a spot I had never fished before. It was…


Rods all bent

What a great day fishing in Breton Sound with Eddie Kohle and his crew. The wind was calm, so we decided to roll the dice and go look for some big trout. We got lucky at the first stop and put a smack down on the speckled trout. Great day of fishing with a great…


One Stop Shop in the Biloxi Marsh
