How To Catch Speckled Trout In The Winter (VIDEO & PODCAST)


We’re back!!!

Yep, the Fish Strong podcast is back in action for 2018.

We heard from many of our loyal members from the Insider Fishing Club that they wanted us to bring the podcast back, and when the Insiders speak, we listen.

So, we made a New Year’s Resolution to do at least two new podcast episodes every single month.

And since we were trying new things, we thought that we’d record this one so you could hear it one of three ways:

  • Listen in right here on this blog page (play button below)
  • Listen in via the actual podcast on iTunes or Stitcher (links below)
  • Or Listen and watch on YouTube (below)

Either way, it would mean a lot if you go SUBSCRIBE to the Fish Strong podcast on iTunes and give us a review here.

In the meantime, here is Luke and myself talking all about catching trout in the winter (especially right after a cold front).

Enjoy and let us know what other topics or guests to have on next.

There are certain things you can be doing (and looking for) when it comes to catching speckled trout in the winter.

Just because a nasty cold front comes through doesn’t mean the trout bite is through.

It’s all just a matter of finding them.

And once you find the trout (usually all packed into one area), it can turn into a really fun day on the water.

Hey Luke – trying to find that paddletail, but no luck. Maybe you could buy a bunch and mark up a little and sell through the web site.

The store that I got them from is in Tampa and they are not yet selling them online… only way to get the exact ones I mentioned in the podcast is to go to their store (Southeaster Tackle).

A similar-to bait that easier to get is the paddle tail version of a Zoom Super Fluke… they can typically be found in chain retail stores.

Great Video Guys. Do you think the Trout in the boat channel are just used to all the traffic?

Luke Simonds

Yes, they most likely seek shelter there in bad weather and just get used to hearing the boats go overhead.

Thanks Brock! These same tactics work in the Crystal River area too. Here’s a link to my first trip up that way where I used the same trends that were working down here in Tampa to get into some fun redfish and trout:

went to Southeastern Tackle liquidators website. Could not find their 5″ paddletail

Their paddletails are located over to the right as you go into their store… go past the reel displays and you’ll then see a couple aisles of soft plastics.

When on the water, how do you spot the deeper potholes?

Luke Simonds

When I don’t have a depth finder handy, I’ll count the amount of seconds that it takes my lure to hit the bottom.

I travel all the time for work so the pod cast is a great way to “go fishing” while driving. Subscribed on apple.

When on the water, how do you spot the deeper potholes? Great Video , as always.

In the case of the tournament day, the water was murky so I just used the channel markers to know where the deep trough would be.
