Default Do speckled trout really exist?

Cause I sure as heck cannot catch one to save my life. I used to be able to catch them by the bucketload.

No issues over here. Been a really good Spring for above average fish.

Whatcha using? I'm fishing artificials, soft plastics on a jig head. Around EPA, quiet water and Naval Live Oaks. I haven't seen a trout in the last 4 trips.

What is the significance of June 1st regarding Specks? There is no closed period for them that I have ever heard.
