When people go to fish the Great Wall of Chalmette for speckled trout they tend to use live shrimp on a cork or Carolina rig, but not me.
I throw strictly artificial lures and, while it does take more skill to use, I feel strongly that they create a better and more consistent presentation that ultimately catches more fish.
But there’s more than just tying on a lure and casting it: how I cover water and position the boat is just as important and that’s what you’ll see in this video.
My nephew’s birthday was coming up and he said he wanted fried speckled trout fillets to eat, so I was dispatched by the family to go and get a box.
