A Day For Mega Trout

A budding bass tournament angler made a fishing sabbatical to east-central Florida’s Mosquito Lagoon and hit a mother lode.


Seatrout might not seem as glamorous as their fellow family members like redfish, but catching a mess of schoolie trout can save a slow day (and provide tasty sauteed filets that night). Catching true trophy specks, which can grow to more than 17 pounds, can become an obsession.

Juvenile trout school over grass flats or sandy areas and range along the U.S East Coast through the Gulf of Mexico. Anglers fish for them with live shrimp below popping corks or with a variety of artificial lures.
