Speckled trout western shore

Rate this topic

4 posts in this topic

I caught my first ever speckled trout from my neighbors dock in Aberdeen creek a tributary of the south river. I also have never caught any fish from this dock using artificials. I wonder if it has to do with the water salinity. I have caught plenty of speckled trout down south or on the eastern shore. Going to give it a try again this afternoon maybe I will catch some bigger ones and possibly catch a puppy or two!

Probably, the water is shallow, and the fish are scattered about.  Bait has scent, and attracts the fish.

 

Try using very small jigs, in the 1-2" size range.  Similar to what you would use for crappie in fresh water. Baby curlytails and paddletails are effective.  And a secret lure that works well up there is a 4-6" jelly worm, just like you use in fresh water fishing.  We used to use purple ones at the mouth of the Severn river in the summer months, and nail keepers in the afternoons.

This morning's surprise, from just outside the South River.  A little guy but he saved me from skunking.  I'll take it!
