  • 11.5# Speck

    This isn't S.C., but it could be. Last week I went to a writers conference in Jensen Beach, Fla. that was sponsored by D.O.A. Lures. In addition to meeting, greeting and eating, we got to try some new products by fishing in the Indian River Lagoon with some local guides. This 33-inch, 11.5 pound speck was caught by my guide on Tuesday, Geoff Page. It was hiding in a hole in a grass bed and hit a D.O.A. shrimp in their new glow over gold flake color. We caught two more trout heavier than 5 pounds and a fair scattering of smaller ones, plus some snook and a couple of jacks.

    I learned some things at the writers conference, plus got to check out some new products from D.O.A., Shimano, Power Pro, and Eagle Claw. The best part was learning some new fishing techniques. Look for them in some future colums in S.C. Sportsman Magazine.

    Good fishing,
    Capt. Jerry Dilsaver
