Sea trout are mostly found inshore. There are a few different species of sea trout, but the speckled trout is the most common and most popular among anglers. The speckled trout is also called a spotted sea trout.
They can be found on grass flats, near bridges, piers, jetties, docks, in the surf, in bays and in tidal creeks. Sea trout can be found inshore year-round, which is one of the reasons why they are so popular among saltwater anglers.

Sea Trout Fishing Tips
Sea trout give anglers lots of options because they can be very aggressive. At times, you can do just as well or even better with artificial lures. For the live bait anglers, you have a variety of live and natural baits that you can use to catch sea trout. Anglers can also get away with using lighter tackle as well since most of the better spots tend to be around shallow water grass flats.
