MARCH CATCHING INCLUDES TROUT REDFISH AND FLOUNDER
Most all of our fishermen this week brought mixed catches of fish back to the cleaning table. All of our guides fished this week with live shrimp that is available at all of the bait camps here in Hackberry. Redfish and trout were coming from behind the weirs on the south end of the lake as well as the south bank of west cove. They found most of the flat fish back in the marsh on the south end of the lake. Call toll free at 888.762.3391 and get in on the special pricing until May the 8th for 3 fishermen.

Top 10 Speckled Trout Lures
A guide to some of the best lures for speckled trout. By Capt. Dave Lear
Speckled trout are a popular inshore target in the Gulf of Mexico.
Want to increase your seatrout catch count when each day ends? Often, the best bait for speckled trout is actually a lure. Saltwater trout lures are as varied as the locations speckled trout are caught across the southeastern United States. The best lures for sea trout are not set in stone, but anglers can at least start by adding these dependable sea trout lures to their arsenal. Topwater Plugs for Seatrout
The Bomber Badonk-A-Donk topwater plug.
Made of hard and soft plastic or wood, topwater plugs mimic mullet, needlefish and other forage fish. Worked with short twitches of the rod tip, “walk-the-dog” side-to-side movement triggers explosive surface strikes. To maximize action tie to the leader with a loop knot. Use in low light conditions or a light chop in depths less than 8 feet. Suspending Twitch Baits for Seatrout
The MirrOlure MirrOdine twitch bait.
Also made from hard and soft plastic or wood, suspending twitch baits sink slowly to mid-depths. Crafted to mimic pinfish, pilchards, mullet and other forage fish, work these lures slowly, with tan occasional twitch to create a wounded-bait impression. Effective in cooler weather lure on lethargic fish. Jerk Baits for Speckled Trout
The Bass Assassin Jerkbait lure for sea trout.
Soft plastics, slow sinking or neutrally buoyant, jerkbaits excel in depths less than 6 feet. Rigged weedless with worm hooks or through the nose with a light-wire circle hook, jerk baits dart and sink like a wounded needlefish or lizardfish. A loop knot connection imparts best action with short, quick twitches of the rod tip. Shrimp Lures for Speckled Trout
Use the LiveTarget shrimp for sea trout.
Shrimp lures remain the mainstay in the sea trout angler’s arsenal. In fact, it might be the best plastic bait for speckled trout. Designed to slowly sink through the water, shrimp lures should be twitched lightly. Often rigged underneath a clacker-style or popping cork. Trout Touts for Speckled Trout
The Bass Assassin Paddle Tail for sea trout.
Soft plastic tails in combination with a lead jig head mimics shrimp or small baitfish. With a quick darting action, trout typically strike as the tout falls. Available in a variety of colors and styles, including paddle tails and shrimp tails. Jigs for Sea Trout
The Spro Andrus bucktail jig is a great bait, tipped with a soft plastic tail.Bucktail or nylon jigs have fooled untold numbers of trout. Available in different head shapes, weights and colors, jigs should be as light as possible to sink slowly without snagging on the bottom. A loop knot allows an enticing fluttering action. Work jigs moderately-fast, with short twitches to make them dart.
Weedless Spoons for Speckled Trout
The Johnson Silver Minnow is classic lure.
Weedless spoons excel over seagrass beds and oyster bars. The fluttering action mimics crabs or distressed baitfish. Tie spoons on with a swivel to reduce line twist and retrieve slowly and steadily so the lure wobbles just off the bottom. Shad Tails for Speckled Trout
The Matrix Shad shad tail if popular in Gulf waters.
Soft-plastic minnow look-alikes, shad tails should be rigged with a jig head and worked with an erratic retrieve through the mid-depths. Available in many sizes, shapes and color combinations, shad tails are inexpensive yet deadly on seatrout. Chuggers for Speckled Trout
action. Some of the best MirrOlures for speckled trout might be their chug-style topwater lures. Prop Lures for Speckled Trout
The MirrOlure Prop Bait features propellers.
Still a classic, surface stick baits with propellers are still fooling trout years after their creation. The props spin and create a wake and noise, signaling feeding activity. Steady, quick retrieve with brief pauses triggers strikes.
