It was an iffy call with a 1ft tide and stiff east winds, but using what’s inside this membership put an easy limit of speckled trout in the boat. See how!

Judging Conditions, Google Earth, etc.
Let’s go over the current and predicted conditions to figure out where we need to cast a line to catch a limit of speckled trout.
The Fishing Trip
First Spot – Crash Intersection
First spot of the day! The skunk gets out of the boat, conditions are reviewed and a game plan is laid out.
An oldie and a favorite, this shoreline in Stump Lagoon gets some attention before moving on.
Over the years I’ve caught a lot of fish here, mostly speckled trout, but also white trout and sheepshead. It deserves a look over, so I bang it out.
An oldie, but a goodie, I knock out an oyster reef located in this body of water to see if speckled trout are home.
Before getting on plane, I decided to give this canal a whack due to what sonar was showing.
This deep water spot has always been promising, and fulfilled those promises, over the years.
Devin’s Junction – Part 1
This spot has been good to me over the years, and matches the criteria for prevailing conditions.
Devin’s Junction – Part 2
I have a lot of faith in this spot, and feel grinding it out until the water drops harder is my best bet.
Devin’s Junction – Part 3
Even though white trout are biting, I feel that waiting out the tide is a good bet. That is, until I think of a better idea.
Honey Hole 2
Hindsight is 20/20, and I should not have come to this spot, but sometimes it’s hard to let old experience go, if that makes sense.
Jigging a New Bayou
Seeing a combination of birds, bait and moving water made me feel super confident about approaching this spot.
Trout Catching Continues – Part 1
The juice is dialed in and the Double Rig is really puttin’ a hurtin’ on the speckled trout.
Trout Catching Continues – Part 2
Trout are in a feeding frenzy! This is the bite we all dream about when we go fishing. See how the fish are managed.
Devin’s Junction Again
I HAD to return to this spot to see if they’d bite, as predicted. Turns out the prediction was accurate.
