TriggerX Minnows and Rapala R-Type outfit for chunky Southwest Florida Spotted Trout.

Posted on April 18th, 2015

spotted_seatrout_rigI had a blast today fishing “popping-corks” with a 4′ lead, a 1/8 oz. jighead and TriggerX Minnow in 3-5′ of water for chunky Spotted Sea trout. I probably made a few hundred casts picking light-colored sand areas on lush saltwater grass-flats and caught & released about 2-dozen nice trout.
