Coastal water temperatures are warming, the official start of spring arrives on March 20 and speckled trout are beginning their annual spawn. With increased activity saltwater anglers will pick their days to wade or drift grass flats and sandy potholes.
Popular marine artist Steve Whitlock has painted a scene entitled “Spotted Seatrout” that stirs the passion of coastal fishermen — speckled trout feeding on a live shrimp. Shrimp will be making their way back into coastal bays this month and are the staple for gamefish through early spring.
Coastal Conservation Association – Texas has once again selected Whitlock as its artist for this year’s fundraisers. One framed “Spotted Seatrout” will be available at each CCA-Texas banquets in 2018.
