Did this beautiful, arm-length speckled trout just change into a fingerling?
Texas wader fishermen have some great offshore fishing available to them, and speckled trout are one of their best targets, but do they magically change size?
This is how a trout can be a lunker one second and a guppy the next.
Caution: Some rough language here.
If you didn't catch that, this guy actually hooked the foot-long speckled trout which was currently being eaten by the big one. Sea trout aren't the only fish in the water that will eat their own kind, but in this case they did seem to change size.
The spotted seatrout, more commonly known as the speckled trout, live around grassy shallow flats in the coastal areas of the Gulf of Mexico and the Southern Atlantic Ocean. Although it is called "trout" these fish are actually members of the drum family.
