I can not speak for trout, but most saltwater fish have a keen sense of smell, Including sea trout or the other speckled trout. One of my favorite passions is getting sheepshead to eat a fly on oyster and grass flats as the flood, sort of north Florida's Permit when it comes to fly fishing. I believe one of the reasons they are so hard to catch on fly is their strong sense of smell. You can throw the perfect crab imitation right in there face as they are nosed down feeding and 95% of the time they will ignore it. You throw a mangled up crushed fiddler on a hook and they will devour it. Just my 2 cents on fish and smell.
