Fish & Game: Speckled trout are back, if you know where to go

Thanks to Hurricane Barry, speckled trout are coming home

Speckled trout are slowly returning home, at least to the east of Shell Beach.

The Bonnet Carre Spillway opening displaced a lot of speckled trout from their usual haunts, but now that it’s closed, and with a little help from Barry, specks are back.

We are in the middle of a speckled trout fishing frenzy right here. We're catching them topwater, on croakers, under corks, on the bottom, just about any way you can imagine! The only problem is there are a lot of teeth out there chasing them.
