4.0 lb. Spotted Seatrout caught by Gary Everts fishing in Florida on 11/02/11
26.0" / 4.0 lb. Spotted Seatrout caught by Gary Everts fishing on Wednesday November 02, 2011 at 10:38 near Boca Grande in Lee County, Florida (FL), United States North America using a 19MR 3/8oz color 19 a Lipless Bait by L&S Bait Company

a very cloudy morning this morning but this helps to mask my presence. with a light chop on the surface, I slowly slip off the kayak and begin to sneak up to a large sand hole 30 yds across, 8 ft deep in the middle and 2ft deep at the edges on a low tide...seeing a dark shadow on the far side I make a very long cast down wind beyond the hole...bringing the lure up to the edge of the weedline I let the lure pause a few seconds...and then on the first twitch this large trout rolls on the lure and missed. I keep the lure moving as though it is trying to escape and another roll and another miss...this makes me think that these fish are not activly feeding or it would have engulfed the lure....I kept the lure moving and no more strikes...working that lure all the way across the 30 yd sand hole It seems that I couldnt get it across the hole fast enough to get the next cast in even though I actually slowed the presentation down. I thought "well that is all of that"...I casted back into the same area 5 more times and worked it at different speeds, testing my trout theory of speed and presentation...on the 6th cast across the hole again I pulled it to the edge of the weedline and paused it ...a very long time and saw the line go limp as the lure rest on the bottom...one small twitch no more than 3 to 5 inches and wham!...one large head thumping seatrout came to the surface and shook his head above water as trout do, and with a few short runs and it was in the bag for this speck....26" and heading for the frypan...MMM good.
