Speckled trout are a constant target on the Florida flats

Speckled trout are a constant target on the flats of Tampa Bay, Clearwater, and St. Petersburg. We catch them on live bait, soft plastics, and my personal favorite… topwater plugs.

These trout are typically  largest in the fall and winter but are great fun and can be caught all year-around. We will usually be able to go out on any different day and find them targeting the potholes on the flats and little holes. These fish are ambush predators and use the grass as camouflage. The big ones are very territorial so using techniques like a soft plastic under a popping cork is very effective. This fish fight on top of the water and have great headshakes! The most challenging part of landing them stems from keeping a tight line amongst all of the head shaking and surface fighting. Their mouths are soft and they are masters at shaking a hook so they will definitely put your skills to the test!

Fishing in the Clearwater, St. Petersburg, and Tampa Bay area has some of the most expansive and thriving flats anywhere in the state of Florida. We often target the trout along with the snook and redfish to complete an inshore slam!
