Are you one of the hundreds of thousands of area anglers who think they have to run outside to the big, salty bays to catch speckled trout this time of year? Well, you don't.

There's a pattern that produces fish every year at this time, and it's going on now. I took my son, Joel, and seventh-grader Caleb Meyer to the marshes of South Louisiana this week to catch speckled trout that are feasting on bait-rich stocks in the interior waters. The action was fast and furious.

In this video, we discuss the keys to success with this tried-and-true springtime pattern -- one I've been fishing for decades.
