Cold Water Scouting

 

Don't fear cold water temperatures, there is great Speckled Trout and Redfish action awaiting anglers.

Heading out of Slidell for the deeper waters of the Bypass Canal, MRGO Wall and the Intercoastal Waterway, Capt. C.T. Williams and Captain Mike Gallo of Angling Adventures of Louisiana go on a cold water Trout scout to find a variety of beautiful fish on this week's The BIGFISH.  Finding Specks in cold water requires unique strategies, and water temps and depths are key.  Don't leave biting fish to find biting fish.  Work the area!  Capt. C.T. catches the first fish of the day on a snooze line, and gives his best advice for trawling.
