Speckled trout fishing means tight lines, full ice chests and happy clients! Hello everyone, remember spring time is right around the corner. With warmer weather approaching and people wanting to get out of the house for some sunshine and fish in the boat, dates are filling fast as ever.
During the spring time Venice, LA is known for trout. The trout this time of the year are generally bigger in size, on average of around 3 pounds. Numbers are great also, and it is very common to catch all the speckled trout to fill the daily bag limit.
In Venice we are allowed 25 trout per person with a minimum of 12 inches per trout. We are also allowed to keep a guides limit giving us an extra 25 trout to catch.
Although the spring is great, the summer is just as good. The size of the trout might be a little smaller, but the numbers are larger. Usually during the summer months the action is fast paced for trout with endless action. Some days we might have to sort through a lot to find the keepers, but it isn’t uncommon to hook onto a big slab of a trout. You just have to come down to see what the talk is all about.
The way Captain Orin fishes for trout depends on what the clients want.
- Most days live bait is used, and it is always on the boat and is included in the price.
- Some days though, the trout can be caught on soft plastics with or without a popping cork.
- Also, a common way to catch these spotted sea trout is on top water baits. This is the most action you could ever ask for. Usually casting far and using a technique called walking the dog, it is very calm and then boom, there is an explosion on your bait like no other and the fight is on!
Enough About Trout, Now Let’s Talk About Red Fish
Spring or summer any time of the year, even the winter, is a great time to catch red fish. It is really as good as everyone talks about down here, with endless action from start to finish with this hard fighting fish.
Red fish down in Venice can be caught multiple ways. Dead bait, live bait, soft plastics, and even top waters are just a few ways to catch these monsters of the marsh. Literally every day it is common to have an ice box full of red fish.
Even though I have talked about fishing these species separately, it is very common to catch them both at the same time and fill a box with both in the same trip. Also a lot of other species are caught including black drum, sheepshead, and flounder.
