On Saturday, I chose one of the quieter and less popular inshore creeks from the JKF Fishing Spots. Awesome weather, incoming tide, cool water. The bite was very steady, perhaps due to the approaching (minor) cold front. I cruised up the creek and back, throwing Gulps at all the usual targets and stopping occasionally to drop down a piece of dead shrimp in hopes of finding some slot Black Drum, but I could only find small Black Drum and palm-size Sheepshead. I tried the Spook Jr a few times, but no takers, so back to cruising and slinging Gulps.

For the day I caught a mixed bag of Reds, Snook, Trout, Black Drum, Sheepshead, etc. I caught at least two dozen Reds, with many of them in the slot. The two Snook were small, but feisty. I caught them about a half mile apart. I caught a few Trout along the way. All fish were released, except for a couple of the Reds.

Thanks, Jeff and Ron!

All of our local inshore creeks should be really good right now, but it will be tough to find a "quiet" creek this holiday weekend.

I used only one color Gulp (Smoke) on a red 1/8 oz jig head all day long and caught many fish and multiple species.

Smoke is one of my go-to Gulp colors as well. Looks good in the water and most importantly the fish like it too.

Its funny so many people hate gulp. I dont know why. I used to fish with this guy that seemed to have some sort of resentment against gulp. He would not use it. I would use it and catch fish all day and he would be lucky to catch anything. He was a very competitive person.
