GATOR TROUT: Catching Big Specks With The Speckled Truth


Have you seen this guy’s Instagram?

Talk about big trout!

We’ve got Chris Bush on the podcast today to talk about two of our favorite things: gator trout and conservation.

Chris started, a blog dedicated to catching speckled trout, which has started a movement in the gator trout scene.

In this episode he talks about:

  • The Dirty 30, an exclusive gator trout club
  • An amazing story about fishing with his dad that reminds us of the real reason why we fish
  • When the best time to catch gator trout is and on what lures
  • How he’s using his influence to promote trout conservation
  • How he’s gathering data to get more information about gator trout

Great podcast. It is very interesting about the moon phases, i.e. new and full. I’ve avoided the full moon, but now see I will need to change my strategy. I’d enjoy a video tutorial on how you fish the Paul Brown’s Fat Boy. BTW – I ordered all 5 you listed. Thanks for the link and specifics.

This is the best program by far you have presented. The Speckled Truth speaks my language. Love it I too have put together a data base using data from the IGFA and tracking moon phases, time of year as well as reading scientific papers on the life cycle and habits of Spotted Seatrout in coastal regions of the south. In addition I collect my own data and those who fish with me I tag released Fish and really enjoy studying the data. I’m hooking up with the Speckled Truth for sure BUT it’s Salt Strong that I thank for making this resource available. Thanks Joe and Luke for staying true to your mission.
