The day started off with me and the family trolling outside the jetties hoping for some King Mackerel. That didn't last long before my youngest son started feeling sea sick. (He had a pretty big breakfast before heading out). Dropped them off at the Isla Blanca boat ramp and went solo. I hit just about every spot on the LLM. I finally found some speckled trout in Gas Well Flats (Oil Field Flats). Caught a few undersized trout before I managed my first keeper trout. Then a few minutes later I spotted the tip of a tail. My first thought was redfish but after a better look I realized it was a trout. My first cast landed across him so I was more concerned trying to maneuver the lure so it wouldn't get spooked. By the time I retrieved my line I had drifted right next to him. So I dropped my lure in front of him and gave it a twitch. Ended up catching my personal best Speckled Trout 31 1/4". Hope you all enjoy the video. God Bless!

Give a man a fish, feed him for a day.

Teach a man to fish, he will sit in a boat all day and drink beer.
