Speckled trout, sea trout, specs, or anything else you might call them, are a favorite of many. These toothy fish can get pretty big and often fight hard. Speckled trout are excellent table fare, but in these videos you will see even some of the largest fish released. Though they can be caught throughout the Gulf Coast and along the Atlantic Shoreline, it seems many of the biggest speckled trout come from Texas. In fact, the majority of speckled trout fishing videos on YouTube feature the incredible spec fishing in Texas. I have taken the time to put together a list of the top five speckled trout fishing videos published on YouTube.
5) “30 1/4 inch trout released on Texas Coast”
published in 2007 by ktomek06
This 30 second speckled trout fishing video is a great way to begin this “top five” list. After holding the fish for the camera, the angler then releases this fine speckled trout to be caught another day. This video is proof that Texas has some of the best.
4) “32” speckled trout”

I really like short fishing videos like this one. 20 seconds, good, close-up look at the fish, and then a clean release. This speckled trout is a true “gator”. Apparently this fine fish caught from a boat, however, many fish in Texas are also caught on foot.
3) “12lb trout in Baffin Bay”

This speckled trout fishing video is no doubt one of YouTube’s favorite. Many views and top ratings demonstrate just how cool this big fish is. Caught while wading the flats, a few anglers converge with camera rolling to share the excitement as this monster spec is scooped with the net. The fish is weighed and then held for a perfect still shot at the end.
2) “29” Speckled Trout – Corky Super Devil”
published in 2007 by bslittle79
Up to his waist in water, the angler in this video lands the fish by hand and then clips on a Boga Grip. This short speckled trout video lasts just over 1 minute and ends with the healthy release of this big fish. There are probably a thousand ways to rig for speckled trout, this angler chose to use a “Corky Super Devil”.
1) “Speckled Trout Fishing in Texas”
published in 2007 by AddictiveFishing
The way this speckled trout fishing video is filmed makes it stand out as #1 in this top five list. Capt. Blair Wiggins posts this video on YouTube as another episode of “Addictive Fishing”. Close up footage of rigging technique, and commentary from a top guide on the area give you
