Default Specks

What are your favorite months to fish for specks? I've had my arse kicked the last couple of times I've been down to Perdido and I'm hoping Fall will be better when it cools off.

Fall is best no doubt. But the specs have to eat every day, and several times per at that...even on these hot hot August days. Early morn, or late evenings and through the night are your best shot at catching right now. Is that when you are fishing?

I've done real well this summer just drifting the flats late eves casting Matrix. Just today on the green hornet Matrix I caught 3, but all shorts. Lots of misses and one lost at boat.

Lots of schoolies this year. Bodes well for the future. Another 2 months and they will be keepers and come next spring become breeders.

Honestly Aug. and Feb.

Right now they're packed under dock lights and in the winter they all pack up in deep holes

You might have to search but once you find them catching a limit is no problem

I've tried the public reefs in the bay early in the morning and under dock lights at night. On the reefs I've caught a few but they were only 12". How deep a hole am I looking for Limit?

August and January. Catch my biggest trout every year during the hottest days of the year. They are out there and hungry. January is when I stock the freezer as limits are very easy to come by. But every month is good, just have to change tactics slightly with the changes in temperature.

3'-15'

"Hole" for me is just a term used to say its a miro spot worthy of 1 boat to fish at a time or only so many people can cast at one time

When I lived on the bay (St. Andrews), December was awesome. I had this small rubble pile I knew about off the deep edge of a grass flat. It was probably in 10-12' of water. But it held nice trout all December, I'd wade out on Christmas day catching them one after another. The thing I liked about it is that I didn't have to go through all the little runts you get in the spring. Plus there were a lot of black sea bass on the pile as well.

Year round over here in Alabama. Catching lots of large specs in the bay right now. From October to March will catch them in the river.
