Speckled Trout & Red Fish Charters At Bayou Log Cabins Fishing Lodge: Speckled trout fishing during the month of April can be a little tricky with the weather conditions in regards to the wind. The cool fronts are just about played out this time of the year however the wind can be a show stopper if your not careful. One trick I learned a long time ago is that if you can get to the strike zone where the speckled trout have been feeding and the wind is blowing you might want to take the corks off and start fishing on the bottom. I find the speckled trout like to go down to the bottom when things on the surface get nasty. It is a lot calmer down there and much safer for them to feed with out all the special effects that the rough water creates on top. Now fishing speckled trout on the bottom is much different than fishing trout on top. A lot of times the trout will slowly take the bait and all you will feel is a small thump on the line, that’s when you need to pop it to him. It will almost feel like you are dragging the bottom while you may have a beautiful trout on the other end of you line. You will need to find a location that has at least six foot of water or more for this to happen, any shallower than that and the wave action from the wind will effect the speckled trout feeding on the bottom.
