Spotted sea trout are not very common on the beaches, but there are often times that they can be found in the surf. If you are a surf angler, you will know when these fish are roaming the beaches. Sea trout will be very active, especially on an incoming tide. They can easily be caught with a variety of artificial lures, live shrimp and live pinfish. The deeper troughs located along the surf will usually be the best spots to fish for sea trout.
