Winter Trout Fishing Troubles [VIDEO]
During the winter, fish are extremely lethargic but we expect to be running into more speckled trout by this time of the year!
Trout will be near underwater structures where there is steady current flow nearby.
Be on the lookout for deeper water with deeper pockets and holes where trout are going to be held up!
