Very good bite today, and a variety of fish. I launched around 10:00 AM. Tried some different lures today, some worked better than others.

First stop was a shallow oyster filled cove, so I threw a Badonk-A-Donk in there, had two good hook-ups, but lost them both. Frustrating, so I'm going to switch back to the Spook Jr, which I've had better luck with keeping the fish hooked. I kept working that spot, but no more action there, so I moved on to deeper water to soak some shrimp for Black Drum.

I posted up on the deep side of a curve, dropped down some fresh dead shrimp and immediately started catching fish. Mostly small Sheepsheads and Croakers, but did manage to put a nice mid-slot Black Drum and a decent Croaker in the cooler. I quickly ran out of shrimp, so I started cruising around while throwing a 5" Gulp Jerk Shad on a weighted hook, rigged weedless. The Trout and Reds were all over it. I caught numerous fish on the same Gulp, turning it and re-hooking it as it slowly got torn up. Then, I hooked a Bluefish, which totally trashed it. I put on a new Gulp Jerk Shad and began working the grass line on my way back to the parking lot, and hooked a 26.5" Red. That made up for the two I lost on top water earlier that morning.

Great catch. I see you keep the fish lower in the picture to keep the shoreline out of the shot. I need to hit it up but with our move the yak hasn't moved out of the garage

Thanks, Mike!
I'm working my way South and will be in your area in a few weekends. Maybe I'll see you there. Got a few more Jax spots to hit first.

Agree. Great lure. Solid hook sets, and always in the jaw. Rarely snags permanently on oysters.
