Unfortunately, a fellow angler ran over the speckled trout action, but that didn't keep me from putting together a great box of fish.

10/19/20 Rigolets Speckled Trout

I launched from Fort Pike, a state historical site that, sadly, is no longer maintained and is falling to ruin.

The fort itself is closed (it's pretty cool on the inside, gives you a real appreciation for how folks lived back in the day) but the boat ramp is still available to the public.

Unfortunately, the boat ramp isn't maintained and it's not the best (or most secure) in the world, but I am comfortable with launching there when the time calls for it.

And that's what I did in this fishing trip, getting on plane and visiting nearby tidal highways in search of biting speckled trout.

This is some of the easiest speckled trout fishing you can ever do, as literally all you need to do is ride around and look for diving birds.

But, you can kick things up a notch by taking this free course detailing the fall fishing pattern, so you know where to go before you launch the boat.

Anyway, I was able to get on a good speckled trout bite right away, not even ten minutes after launching the boat.

Sparkle beetles in glow rigged onto a Double Rig were the ticket to catching fish two at a time, getting a head start on filling that cooler (yes, I was keeping fish this time).

Now, a couple other anglers saw the flock of birds I was fishing and wanted to join in.

This is fine, but also where things got a little interesting, and that's because one of the anglers took it upon himself to motor on top of where the fish were biting.

I wasn't mad, though it was disappointing to see the speckled trout come to a stop as result of his action.

While I didn't find a bite quite like that one for the rest of the day, I did find more diving birds and was able to put some more fish in the boat.

You can watch it all flesh out in the video above!
