Young Billy Ray Cedric Russell of El Campo is all smiles with this gorgeous East Matagorda Bay speckled trout.

It has been impressive to see the number of big trout showing up in all of our bays. It’s a testament to conservation and the conscious effort of protecting our trophy stock of speckled trout. It’s taboo to bring a trout over five pounds to the cleaning table; and, there is a movement by many anglers to release all trout 20 inches or better.

I think that is a wonderful idea and have been pushing that on my boat for years now.
