Trout Masters: How Louisiana's Best Anglers Catch the Lunkers

By Jerald Horst

When Leon Mattes reeled in a lunker of a speckled trout in May 1950, he could never have guessed that the fish would stand as Louisiana's state record for more than half a century. But today, with that 12.38-pound speck having reached epic status, 14 anglers have set themselves on a course to conquer Louisiana's fishing Everest. Each has the same goal, but the chosen and chiseled means are as varied as the determined men and women who have selected them. These are Louisiana's best anglers, and odds are, one of them will eventually push Mr. Mattes to No. 2. 8x6 inches, 246 pgs.

"Trophy trout are as different from little trout as marlin are from bream. Only anglers who are aware of that fact will ever consistently catch the mules. Clearly, the anglers featured in Jerald Horst's Trout Masters 'get it.' If you want to catch the biggest trout in our marshes, lakes and bays, read this book, and do what they do." --Todd Masson, editor of Louisiana Sportsman and author of Specks

"There is probably no one source so comprehensive and beneficial to any fisherman who has ever dreamed of catching the higher side of what are considered trophy speckled trout." --Outdoor media personality Don Dubuc
