Decided to make a late evening trip to Holly Beach. On a few occasions I have seen a nice size speckled trout in the same area. However, everytime I do see the trout it will just swim straight ahead of me a little faster than I am drifting. It nevers spooks and darts off it just swims away into deeper water. The few times I have had an opportunity to cast to him he just ignores it and keeps swimming away. Well, I figured if I could go late in the evening ( before the sun went down) maybe I could get a chance to cast to him before he saw me. I actually planned on fishing a few hours after the sun went down. Anyways, my first drift took me to far from the area I wanted to fish in. On my second drift I was in the general area where I had seen the trout. After a while I had my first blowup on a topwater. Within the next few yards I had spooked about 4 reds. I decided it was time to change lures to a GrassWalker. On my 3rd cast I hooked up a 28 1/2” trout. Can’t say for sure it was the same trout but I hooked him up within 20 yards off the area he is usually in. After that I called it a day. I have a link to a short video of the trip. Hope you all enjoy. Be safe and God Bless!

Enjoyed the video


The driving force and secret desire of every bass fisherman, is to one day be a crappie fisherman............Could it be that the good Lord just smilies and looks the other way when a fisherman tells a lie?

Do you guide?


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.
