Top 3 SPOTS To Catch Big Speckled Trout In The Fall
If there’s one thing that gets me excited about fall fishing, it’s this…
Big speckled trout!
Everybody knows you can catch big numbers of speckled trout in the fall, but if you plan out your trip correctly and go to the right spots, you can big numbers of BIG speckled trout, too.
And that’s exactly what you’re going to learn in this video.
I’ll show you the top three spots where big trout like to feed in the fall as they’re transitioning from their summer homes near the passes and inlets to their winter homes in the back creeks and canals.
I’ve fished these types of spots and caught tons of trout at them recently, and they work no matter where you live.

Top 3 Fall Trout Spots [VIDEO]
Spot #1: Points
In the summer, trout can be found near the inlets and passes.
And in the winter, they can be found in the back creeks and canals.
So my favorite spot to find them in the fall as they transition from their summer homes is near points around the entrances to their winter homes.
That means points before backwater creeks, edges of grass flats outside of back bays, or points outside of residential canals.
Points have lots of current flow around them and bait gets swept by, which makes for an easy meal for big, hungry trout.
Also, points will usually hold several fish, so if you find a point that holds one trout, keep fishing it and look for more.
Spot #2: Wind protected coves & creeks
Wind protected coves and creeks, especially those that are a little deeper than the surrounding areas and have a muddy bottom, will often hold big trout in the fall.
The muddy bottom, deeper water, and protection from wind will all factor into that spot being warmer than the nearby areas, so as the temperature cools down, this will be a great spot to find them.
Spot #3: Areas with depth change
Trout prefer shallower water when it’s warm out, and deeper water when it’s cool out.
And since you can have pretty big temperature swings as those first few cold fronts roll in during the fall, you can usually find big trout in areas where they can hunt in both shallow and deep water without having to travel far.
Two examples of places that have depth changes are edges of grass flats and creek mouths.
The most important thing when it comes to catching big trout in the fall is finding them, and here are three spots (no matter where you live) where you can do that:
- Coves and creeks (especially those that have muddy bottom, are a little deeper, and are protected from the wind)
- Areas of depth change
