Do sea trout taste good?

Do I need a Licence to fish for sea trout in the sea?
The short answer to this question is no – sea fishing does not require a licence. Anglers fishing inland up rivers do not need licences either if they are using sea fishing tackle to target sea fish species within tidal waters (i.e. there is movement of water level with the incoming and outgoing tide).
Because they are such avid feeders, seatrout are an excellent game fish. Although seatrout are actually bottom dwellers, they will attack surface flies in shallow water at dawn, but the hookup ratio tends to be pretty low with that method.
What do sea trout like to eat?
