  • Speckled trout season has begun

    December is here and that means speckled trout season in Brunswick County.
    Each year anglers begin their annual pursuit of the beautiful and aggressive specks as they roam inshore and in the surf in large schools, hitting a variety of baits and lures and running the tides at both predictable and totally unpredictable times.
    Unfortunately, the biggest news in trout fishing this year is the new North Carolina size and creel limits. Recreational anglers can now keep only four speckled trout with a 14-inch size limit.
