Near shore in grassy areas and sandy bottoms. They can be located near a pier or inshore where there is grass.

How to Catch Them? . Try fishing early mornings and late evenings. You can also catch them on overcast days. They spook easily. If the fish sees you he will move. Sometimes they can be hard to catch.

One technique is throw a lighted float at night in the water and fish around the float with live shrimp.

People do catch them from the pier. Throw a float out with 2 to 3 ft of line on it with live shrimp early in the morning and make a popping noise with the float. This is a fast whipping action of the rod from 2 o'clock position to 11 o'clock position. That noise attracts seatrout thinking another one is eating.

For lures use floating castana and the boone spinana . Twitch the bait  erratically and wait. Red and white seem to be the best color. You can also use Mirr-o-Lure's Top Dog and walk it across the water. Try silver or gold spoons, or bucktails.For soft plastics try the curly tails with 1/4 oz jig head.

For Equipment use a 6 to 8 ft fast  action spinning rod with 10-20 lb fishing line. The hooks can be 1 to 5 in size.

One word of caution, in most states there is a size limit to them and how many you can catch.. Check with State Game & Wildlife people. Or you can ask your local bait and tackle shop for the size and creel limits of seatrout. So wet your line and Happy Fishing!!!!
