Trout are beginning to move off of the coast and back into the marsh and inland bays, making it the perfect time to head into Vermilion Bay. In fact, 70-year-old Ray Hargrave, a lifetime recreational fisherman, recently caught his biggest speckled trout after fishing the bay.
"I thought that it was a redfish at first because she (the trout) pulled down and never surfaced. I knew it was something big though, so I didn't horse it too much with my 12-pound test,” Hargrave said. “I like to use light line so that I can really feel that ‘thump-thump’ when it hits. It really wasn’t a tough fight. She finally surfaced and just swam straight into the net.”

He is only 34 years old, young for so much responsibility, but I listen to him carefully.
