Watch these Trout Swarm in a Swimming Pool


These aren't even speckled trout, but it would be pretty neat if they were, wouldn't it?

Anyways, these are still "trout" and I am guessing that they have the same "schooling" instinct that speckled trout possess.

Once the trout are dumped into the pool they are somewhat discombobulated but quickly get their bearing and start moving around in a large school.

Watch the video then read below to understand how this impacts your fishing knowledge.

Now imagine if you tossed a lot of trout food into the middle of the pool. They would launch into a feeding frenzy!

I assume this is also how specks swarm when they are on the prowl, which is why it is so important to move with a purpose when catching trout.

The school is moving, not stationary. You have to keep them in one spot by throwing bait at them continuously. If you take forever unhooking  fish, snapping photos, etc. the school will lose interest and move on.

At that point you lost them.

Understanding how speckled trout move is key to staying on top of the bite. When you do this you are Fishing Smarter. That's what I believe in!
