Dock light trout run the same size most of the time. Go to a different area to find bigger fish. You almost never see a true gator around a light, in my experience over the last 10 years or so. We caught one 27 inch and a few 24's, that's it. Seek out deeper water as well. Just my 2 cents...Mike

These posts cover it pretty well:

- Larger baits

- Fish Deeper

- Fish the area outside the lights

- STEALTH!! big trout are spooky and if you make noise they'll clam up or leave. Try drifting in with the current or wind and cast from as far away as possible. Since you ought to work the edges and deeper water first it works out.

I sometimes use a little more weight than normal to sink it past them quicker. I use this to get past Juvies and trash fish on the surface. I've caught bigger fish on bigger bait, buttttttt

sometimes when they won't hit anything I've noticed them hitting little bitty minnows no bigger than your fingernail. They're full of them when I clean them too. Huge trout that are full of tiny minnows. When that happens, the only thing that can compete is small fly lures.

I am fishing under the lights about 98% of the time.

Good Luck!!!

Most of the bigger trout will notice your arrival, if you dont have a trolling motor forget it! If you fish out of a kayak& you anchor in the dark quietly.....you'll catch bigger trout. I can watch most of the bigger fish go down as i take the first few step out onto my dock. The reds are dumb in comparison, I stand right over a school and watch them swim in circles
