Winter Sea Trout Fishing Video - In The Spread




Fishing Knowledge = Success 

Spotted sea trout or speckled trout are a species that you can target year round in Florida. One of the more challenging times of year will be in the winter when cold Gulf of Mexico waters can push the fish off the keys and limestone rocks out to deeper water. The key is to fish areas that are exposed to the sun on outgoing or low tides. These areas absorb warmth from the sun. When the tides turns and pushes water in covering these areas, speckled trout will school up to take advantage of the warmth and feed on food being pushed with the incoming water. Understanding this goes a long way to narrowing down where to start fishing.

Winter Snook Fishing , Live Bait or Lures

Winter is a tough time to target snook. These inshore predators are not cold tolerant, at all. Sluggish is a good descriptive that comes to mind. In this scenario where the water and the air are cold, where are these fish going to stack up. Because that is what they do. It is like a snook condo. Anyway, find areas, like sea walls, dark bottom or up canals and rivers, that hold a tad more heat and you will find fish.

When you have it narrowed down to where the fish are, the issue of which snook lures and which snook baits are best pops up. How are you going to target them? Lures and artificials both work quite effectively. You just have to try various options out.

These fishing video from In The Spread featuring Capt. William Toney give you a heavy dose of what works and why for the Gulf coast of Florida. The first video is about using live bait to target snook and which baits work well for the warm brackish water of the Homosassa River. The second video in the snook lures presentation. Both of these videos go into detail on where fish move to and why and what to look for when you are heading out on a cold winter day. Capt. Toney shares his thoughts on a range of lures and baits that he uses on a regular basis. He will talk size, color, action and rigging for each. See how he places his casts to trigger maximum bites.

How to Rig Live Trout for Muskie Fishing

winter muskie baits rainbow trout in the spread

In Tennessee you are legally allowed to live bait with rainbow trout. The horror, the horror! I know. I am sure mountain trout nerds will be triggered into spasmatic convulsions. Oh well. This is one of the best live baits you can use for muskie in the winter.

Trout are super hardy cold water fish. Rigged properly, they will swim all day or until devoured by a giant muskie. This video from In The Spread, featuring Cory Allen shows you how to fish for muskie using live trout in a lock. What? Yes, that is what I said.

In the winter, muskie will push up stream as far as they can go. Usually, at least in the southern reservoir environment, a dam is as far as they can go. A lock adjacent to the spillway provides an easy still water ecosystem loaded with bait for this apex predator. What better way to target than with the quintessential cold water species, rainbow trout. Now, the guys at In The Spread did not go out and catch the trout and then rig them up. They were purchased from a local bait shop. These are farm raised bows and they come in several sizes. Something in the 12 to 18 inch range is ideal.

See how to rig live trout using the Joe Murphy #stff live bait rig. In The Spread will also show you how to set your live baits at various depths to provide more coverage throughout the water column. You do this because muskie will suspend and different depths and just hangout. They will not necessarily go after a bait above or below their chosen position in the water column. So, place some baits deep and some in the mid depths. This allows your target species, musky, to exert little effort to score a nice meal. Learn how to rig live bait, where to position it and why and how to slow drift around the lock with this educational fishing video.

Muskie Spinner Baits with Trailer Hooks by Cory Allen

The devil’s in the deets.

A couple muskies 44 and 50” respectively that have come into my boat during the past couple weeks that without trailer hooks and selectively chosen trailers for each would probably have never happened.

Ironically a bag of fish mixed between those marks and two beyond also avoided capture because of slight errors in how to choose and present proper trailers for each situation and presentation.

Big muskies, especially fish over the 48-50” mark, are notorious for “nipping” at nearly every presentation that exists during periods of relative inactivity, which as they become older and reach what musky anglers consider to be trophy sizes, becomes the bulk of their time.

Especially in systems where smaller fish saturate the same structure situations, or the number of ancillary predators present increases, the more subtle a touch it takes at times to circumvent fishing through smaller fish and target larger specimens specifically.

In one of our upcoming instructional videos, I spend considerable time discussing this and the use of specific spinnerbaits for these neutral/negative open water fish.

In fact, you get to see me even lose one of the larger fish I’ve hooked this season at the boat due to my own error in not implementing a proper trailer hook with a suitably chosen trailer that best complements the way the specific spinnerbait is being used (ex. Burning over weeds, slow rolled up a deep break dragging bottom, yo-yo’d, vertically jigged...) and the tendencies of each specific weight and blade combination as well.

Notice there wasn’t even a single mention of color.

But ironically, this is one of the few times I will pay attention to color, as far as blade color set to trailer with different water hues and tints, and I discuss that a length as well.

If you haven’t checked out the quickly expanding and diverse fresh and saltwater libraries of educational angling media In the Spread has to offer... ...it’s about to be a great time to do so. www.inthepread.com

Stay tuned for our new HQ site, both in standard and mobile format, coming VERY soon.
