Trout--Everyone's Favorite

SHOW DESCRIPTION



Prior to the latest redfish tournament craze, trout reigned supreme among inshore anglers in the southeast. A ten-pound gator trout was “the” fish on everyone's list of must have catches. Even with $10,000-dollar reds swimming around, most anglers still prefer to lazily drift a grass flat dreaming of that yellow-mouth gator trout. But if you want to catch a big one, join us on Florida Sportsman TV as we fish high and low for the “most popular” fish of the flats.



Publisher Blair Wickstrom and Capt. Jim Ross go deep with jigs, the all time favorite lure, for trout. And then editor Terry Gibson and Eric Davis work the clear winter/early spring waters of the Indian River Lagoon for skittish trout.



Whether darting in and out of the grass with a jig or noisily working the surface with a chugging, zigzagging lure, there are certain tricks to catching big trout that you don't want to miss.
