I was invited to fish with my cousin Jack yesterday afternoon after work – one of the benefits of daylight saving time! Jack likes to fish for Speckled Trout and usually does well. We fished the lower stretches of a local river that drains into Mobile Bay for a couple hours but the Speckled Trout didn’t cooperate. We have received a lot of rain recently so one possibility for their absence is that the freshwater has begun to move them into the bay where they are found during the summer. Ironically, I did catch a Ladyfish, that relative of the Tarpon, which are usually found while fishing the saltwater beaches. I tried to grab a quick picture – with questionable success – before releasing the lively lady.
