The autumn speckled trout run begins

Fish are right where they’re supposed to be

Autumn. Fall. Harvest. Call it whatever you want. There’s simply no time of year like it, especially if you’re a speckled trout fisherman and you live anywhere near South Louisiana.

The specks have arrived in inside waters, and I couldn’t be happier about it. Just a few days ago, I took my son, Joel, and Donny Steilberg of Pearl River into a marsh lake, and we loaded a box for a fish fry by fishing shrimp creole-colored Matrix Shads on 1/16-ounce Deathgrip jigheads about 3 feet under Versamaxx Bolt corks.

The action wasn’t nonstop — it seldom is in the early fall — but it was still good, and was a great harbinger of things to come.
