speck with no specks?

caught this last weekend in Poc. It has spots on the top fin but zero on the body. It may be quite common but it's a first for me.

There are definitely spotted sea trout with minimal or almost no spots. Matagorda and Baffin seem to have a higher abundance of them like Marcus Said. Also seems that a lot of the bigger females as like that. Pretty cool when you see one.

That one looks like a speck and not a gulf trout. The Gulf trout have no spots at all and are a little more golden colored. If that one has a spot on a dorsal it's spotted sea trout / fanged toothed freckle fish.

Seen a many of them. Only specks are in the fins. Caught a few last week like that. Also, at the same spot caught a few that were over achievers and had TONS of spots. Genetics. Snaggletoothfrecklefish and I were talking about this exact thing while fishing.

The one without specs looks like a "tide runner" trout. Others looks like "resident trout". Glad to see the tide runners making it to the bay this early in the year.

You are lucky to be able to catch the "spotless" sea trout! They swim so fast that the spots literally wash off from the speed! Fast and quck turning makes them spots fall right off...that's my story and I'm sticking with it.
