Habitat

Spotted sea trout are mostly found inshore.  They can be found on grass flats, near bridges, piers, jetties, docks, in the surf, in bays and in tidal creeks.  Sea trout will be found inshore year-round, which is one of the reasons why they are so popular among saltwater anglers.

How to Catch Spotted Sea Trout

You can catch spotted sea trout many different ways.  The grass flats are usually the best place to target sea trout.  The tides usually dictate when and how they are going to feed around the flats.  A high tide will move fish onto the flats, while a low tide will push fish off of the flats and into the deeper water nearby.  Tidal changes are key as moving water triggers sea trout into feeding.  Spotted sea trout can be caught on shrimp, crabs and many different types of bait fish.

Eating Spotted Sea Trout

Spotted sea trout taste good and the meat has a nice texture.  Some anglers prefer to put these fish on ice immediately after catching them to preserve the quality of the meat.  You can eat sea trout many different ways.  Anglers will bake, grill and fry spotted sea trout.
