Top-smacking speckled trout already thick in marsh!

There’s nothing quite like seeing the seasons change right before your very eyes. That’s particularly true when you’re deep in the marsh, and what you’re witnessing is the raging South Louisiana summer finally losing its grip and giving way to the gentle, open arms of autumn.

I saw it first-hand during my most recent trip into the marsh. Speckled trout are inside — certainly not in the numbers they will be in a few weeks, but plenty enough to keep an angler entertained and filling the box during a beat-the-heat early morning trip.

And, of course, the other, year-round denizens are there as well, biting like they need to get to the bait before the trout do.
