How To Drift A Flat For Speckled Trout (Plus A Secret Grouper Trick)
Let’s face it, sometimes the trolling motor dies on you.
And sometimes you’re fishing on a boat, skiff, or kayak without a trolling motor.
In these scenarios, one of the best ways to catch a ton of fish is by drifting the flat for specked trout.
So in this LIVE episode, we show you exactly how we drift a flat for trout (including the best spots, time, tide, etc).
We even throw in our secret grouper trick that continues to work everywhere.
If you’re ever in a situation with no trolling motor and MUST catch trout, then you’ve got to hear this!
