Had a pretty good few Hrs. wading Lemon Bay this morning. Felt really good to get away from the South Jetty. I got to do this more often, like I use to. Flounder and trout hit a DOA Shrimp, redfish hit a chunck of ladyfish. Yesterday this guy came all the way down from New Port Richie to the South Jetty to catch a few snook. He was using a DOA Night Glow Shrimp. The Jetty rocks are loaded with snook now. Very easy to catch IMHO

Nice work, Andy.
I went to the jetty to get bait this am, and I completed my mission.
Heading offshore Sunday am.

Good luck out on the gulf tomorrow. You won't have to give Jersy Ron any fish this time. He got all the fish from Lemon bay this morning. He is loaded up. LOL! Thanks Bill!

nice haul there Andy!

how were you working the DOA for the flounder? dragging it on the bottom or bouncing on the bottom? also what weight did you use. I find the 1/8th hard to keep near the bottom.

Also, i had thought the flounder were a little deeper this time of year when it's so freaking hot. What dept were did you get em at?

I started off with the DOA 1/4 night glow shrimp. Not one fish hit it. Switched to a DOA 1/4 measles colored one. Don't know the real name for that DOA shrimp. The canoe man and Capt.Mel use to say it was their go to lure years ago. All the fish were in about 3' of water about 25 Yrds. out from the mangroves. No jigging or hopping the DOA along bottom, just let it go to bottom and start a SLOW steady glide, let it touch bottom now and then. Now that is how I work it in shallow water flats or beach. You have guys on this site that hop it jig it and one guy said he runs it across top of water and the snook blow up on it. I'm sure I tried all of that in my years of using the DOA Shrimp, but must not have worked for me, or I would be still doing it that way. 7:00 AM time to sit at the jetty. See Ya!
