Big Trout – Hunt Them
Catching a Big Trout is much like hunting Trophy Bucks.
What’s going on with Big Trout right now? Currently and for the last several weeks in particular quite a few big trout guides that are targeting big trout have been doing VERY well. The last several years we’ve had very warm fall months with high tides and that’s caused it to be very tough to catch the big fish; It has more variables that affect it than that but targeting them is the same. Hunt Them!!!

This year we’ve had the conditions begin to line up a little better to provide more favorable conditions for big trout. The tide is still staying up a bit as we’ve had a good bit of northeast wind this fall cumulatively, but we’ve also had some conditions that have moved more big fish into the locations where we can target them. I want to be very clear here, on the Gulf Coast, you can catch big trout in big trout specific areas almost year round; however, in the cooler months there will be more, and more are fooled on artificial baits during the cooler months. We used to think big trout time was from mid January thru March but you can begin seeing more show up in those locations from late October thru the end of May and early June IF you HUNT for them.
When I say hunt for them, that’s exactly what I mean. We have to target specific big trout habitats and it may take looking at 10 of them thru the course of the day to find the right conditions that will have a big fish actually there. It’s really similar to mature buck hunting, you can’t expect that one stand to produce every day… you need about 10 stands to set up on with different wind conditions, changes in food each year, and where the rest of the deer herd is concentrating and that can change every year based on big weather influences that are highly variable like getting early season rains, or a dry, or wet year during an acorn production year. Big Trout fishing can be just as nebulous. As many of you have experienced, our Big Trout DVD simplifies a lot of that. You’ve found if you really apply the content, make a game plan from the video, and apply it on the water you’ll begin to see that the approach works and takes a lot of the frustration out of the scenario. Hunt Big Trout habitat and look for bait acting the way we show in the dvd, and on the right weather conditions listed in the dvd to increase your odds… most of you have already watched it and know what I’m talk about so I won’t waste time on that here.
What if the weather conditions are wrong for a Big Trout. The best conditions to catch a big trout are stable conditions, and right before a cold front, up to several hours after the frontal passage (make sure you have safe route back to ramp if you plan on fishing after the passage of a weather front). After that trout fishing can be tough and it definitely reduces the odds of finding a big fish in big trout habitat; although it’s still possible to catch trout and reds. Hint, look close by on the drop off if it’s fishable; she’s not going to go far in most cases. The other option is punt. I know you had your heart set on catching big trout this trip but it may be better odds at just going after stringer fish this trip if the weather is not right. Yes, you can catch fish after a cold front, and how to do that could fill volumes of other emails and videos; Can’t put it all here in this one little page. For the most part I’d focus on cuts with depth, semi protected water, with a little water movement of some sort whether it’s tidal, wind derived, or man induced. For more help on big fish always feel free to contact me; I also offer a ‘one on one’ to look at big trout in your area (email me and we’ll talk about it firstname.lastname@example.org).
