This method is particularly effective in shallower waters, around grassy flats and estuaries, where Speckled Trout are known to frequent during certain seasons.

The visual and auditory appeal of topwater lures creates an exciting and adrenaline-pumping experience for anglers as they witness explosive strikes from Speckled Trout.

Wading along the shoreline is a common practice among Speckled Trout enthusiasts in Port Aransas.

Whether using live bait, artificial lures, or opting for the immersive experience of wading, the combination of these techniques enhances the overall enjoyment of Speckled Trout fishing in the diverse and picturesque waters around Port Aransas.

    Great fishing trip. Shayne communicated with us prior to the trip answering an questions we had. He picked us up right on time and we got right to the fishing. Wind was howling and seemed to get higher as the night went on. We had chosen the night trip because that was the only time we could go and we love night fishing anyway. Not too many guides offer that. He took us into protected areas and we had a blast. Fish were not cooperating, but he worked hard to get us on some fish that were feeding. Got two really nice redfish and one keeper speck. Just want to thank Shayne for a great overall experience! J and J.
