Had a busy day on the water Sunday catching a bunch of Trout, and some small Redfish and Sheepsheads. I launched around 10:00 am during an incoming tide. The first catch of the day was a decent Trout on the Skitterwalk. I worked my way up the creek, slinging a Gulp, and found a school of Trout and Rat Reds. That kept me busy for a while. Tried some fresh dead shrimp on the bottom and caught 8 or 10 small Sheepsheads. Also, caught a small Lady Fish with the Gulp.

Looks like a nice trip.

I cant hang with the Gulp anymore, pinfish and whatever else rip their tails off almost instantly.

Thanks!
Yep, I lose a few tails every now and then, but I have a lot of success with the Swimming Mullets. I catch a lot of different species with them. Even with the tails bitten off, you can dead-stick them and Reds and Black Drum will eat them.

Jim...Another nice multi-species day and LOTS of fish too!!
Some of those trout look pretty skinny...maybe that is why that are eating so much...??
Did not see any flounder???.....
Any fish invited home to supper???
Thanks for sharing your techniques, catches, and variety of species!!
JYJ or John

Nice catches. Kills me how you guys make reports singing you got to catch 10-20 fish in a session. This NEVER happens in my world.

Thanks John and SuaSponte!

John,
I did not feel the Flounder "tap", but I did see two Flounder caught by a nearby power boater.
I didn't keep any fish this trip. I couldn't catch a big enough Red, and no one in my family will eat the Trout.

Sua,
Sorry you haven't gotten on any big schools of fish lately, but I have been fishing the inshore creeks from Amelia to Flagler and points in-between, and lately the fishing has been good in all areas. I like to fish different creeks, different tides, and I tend to move around a lot, casting at all the usual targets. My primary lure is a Gulp on a jig head, but before I give up on a spot I will also throw a top water lure (Spook Jr or Skitterwalk), a gold spoon or spinner lure (Johnson or Redfish Magic), and a subsurface crank bait (X-Rap, Mirrodine, or Crystal Minnow). One of those lures usually gets a fish. If it's the right time of the year for Black Drum, I'll use pieces of fresh dead shrimp on a dropper rig with a 2/0 bait hook and a small bullet weight at the bottom. Right now there are A LOT of small Sheepsheads and Mangrove Snappers on the submerged oyster bars. A dropper rig will help keep your bait away from Catfish and Sting Rays, and you won't get hung up much.

Good Luck!
