We waded a hard sand and grass shoreline near Rockport, Texas with croakers and corkys. The speckled trout were scattered but hunger and big. These are big female trout that are feeding aggressively and preparing to spawn. The main target of these big trout are small schools of mullet. If you cast near a trout they slammed the bait. We released several big fish over 25″ and kept enough for dinner.
