E17 – Tyler Morel Fishes Smarter

Being persistent, conserving trout limits and Fishing Smarter with Tyler Morel!

Tyler was born and raised in Slidell, Louisiana where he graduated from high school and still lives today. He is an avid inshore angler with experience in a wide array of inshore fishing techniques. He grew up fishing in Hopedale using an Inshore Rig but eventually moved on to fish waters closer to home. His first trip to Lake Pontchartrain didn't produce the best results, but he was hooked on fishing the area and eventually became proficient in jigging the Trestles for speckled trout.

Tyler also enjoys fishing the Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain for largemouth bass. It was on one of the Northshore's bayous he had one "that got away" and, despite his crushing defeat, picked up and kept fishing hard, eventually landing another bass just like it.

Inshore fishing entails a wide spectrum of different kinds of fishing, and Tyler Morel does just about all of it. Tyler is also an enthusiastic sight angler, spending time in a stand on the bow of a boat, looking for those copper pumpkins to toss a bait at. It is, hands down, his most favorite way to enjoy our inshore waters.

When asked how Tyler would find fish today, he replied that he would definitely bring some live bait in the form of 25-50 live shrimp to help located speckled trout.

Tyler also has thoughts on conserving our speckled trout population. It is arguable that Louisiana's fishing resource is her most overlooked one and her speckled trout action is the best in the world. Tyler believes that lowering the limit of speckled trout will make the necessary difference in maintaining our fishery without eventually depleting it.

Do you agree with Tyler? Listen in and learn more as I bring up some great points for and against Tyler's point of view.
