This webinar dives into what makes wintertime fishing for specks and reds unique, covering the dominant weather pattern, shift in primary forage, what kind of bottom structure is important to fish for survival and lightly touching on where to find speckled trout and redfish.

Welcome to the Webinar + Slides
Welcome to the webinar, thank you for attending, and understand my number one goal.
Why the Big Picture?
We anglers we must look at the bigger picture so we know where, when and how to fish. Failing to do so is the equivalent of playing football without paying attention where other players are.
When Does the Winter Pattern Begin?
Generally speaking, the winter pattern kicks off when the water temperature stabilizes around this specific temperature.
Weather Patterns, Forage and Fish Location
Winter’s Dominant Weather Pattern
Let’s take a look at the dominant weather pattern of winter, and how it affects the marsh.
How Forage is Affected
How does winter’s weather affect baitfish? Where will they go? What will they do?
How Specks and Reds are Affected
Now that we know what happens to the marsh and bait, we have a clear idea what happens to our target species.
Where to Find Specks and Reds
Based upon the bigger picture we’ve painted so far, this is where to begin looking for speckled trout and redfish.
Brief Rant on “Deep or Shallow” Question
This has more to do with angler’s mindset than it does winter fishing patterns, but it’s spot on and important to know!
When to Find Specks and Reds
Just as important as where, we go over when we find our target species.
