Spotted sea trout will move back into the creeks, inlets and backwaters just like redfish. If you can find some grass flats in these shallow water areas, you will have a much greater chance to find some sea trout. The tides will dictate where the fish will be located throughout these backwaters. As the waters rise, you will find sea trout moving onto the flats and around many different types of shoreline cover. During the low tide, sea trout will be found in the deeper cuts and channels. Tidal changes bring moving water, which is essential to find feeding trout. The winter months will usually hold large numbers of sea trout in the tidal creeks.
