    Bait??? Greenbacks anywhere

    Hey guys and gals! I'm heading out this Sunday to do some red fishing at ft Desoto, tarpon key and probably mullet key.. Anyone been catching greens anywhere around there lately? I know there are plenty at the skyway but that is a bit of a boat ride for me and my boat. Any help would be appreciated

    If you are fishing by boat or kayak mullet key bayou is always a hot spot for refs and trout.. Throwing spook jr first thing in the morning and depending on the floating grass out there If the spook doesn't work I have had a lot of luck with a mirrodine or the mirror lure soft plastics out there... If you on land anywhere out there wading is a good spot reds have a tendency to school up out there this time of year.. If you fish off beach Spanish mackerel are running like crazy out there right now throwing a gold spoon on edge of grassy areas I prefer the alligator spoons.. Hope this helps!Tight linesChad

    CRB HELP!!

    I have been fishing crb for many years now and have always had good luck out there.. Maybe it's just me not being able to find the fish here lately.. I love fishing the mangroves on a high tide.. But Dave I use a trolling motor but cut it off probably 100 to 150 yards away from where I fish at and try to drift up to it.. I haven't tried the lady fish or pins out there lately though.. So I will have to try that technique this weekend..

    CRB HELP!!

    I am fishing the mangroves, and flats.. Using a fluorocarbon leader 15 lb test.. Using live shrimp, top water plugs, spook jr bone color, Berkley gulp shrimp new penny color.. I can't find any white bait anywhere.. Fishing in a boat.. I have literally tried throwing every trick I know around there and have been skunked every time... I want to go again on Sunday.. Hoping someone can help me out trying to locate some fish.. Looking to fish for some reds and snook.. And if that doesn't pan out go out in the flats and try trout out again.. I have been hearing guys are killing it out there right now but I just can't seem to find the fish Dave help me out
  18. I'm heading down to cockroach bay tomorrow with my grandad and uncle who have never fished saltwater a day in there life.. being they are from Baltimore Maryland.. with that being said I haven't fished there in a few months due to work. So my question is has anyone had any luck down there lately with reds or snook even trout.. I'm planning on fishing the backwaters with them and just wondering has anybody any big reds this time of year. And if so what are you guys using live bait( greenies, shrimp, pins) or what type of artificial lures are you guys using( gulp, spoons, topwater) thanks for the help in advance! Hoping to put these northerners on some fish!

    CRB Slam!!

    Yesterday me and a buddy of mine went out to CRB haven't been in a little while so I decided to hook up the ole Jon boat and fish all the back waters of CRB. I have never fished back therr before but because of Dave T and his advice I figured I would give it a try and boy am I glad I did.. got on the water about 745 a little later than what I wanted to but it was ok I was on the water and having a great right from the get go.. I started out the day fishing with live green back and caught a nice 17" trout with the first cast of the day.. well long story short we go trolling through the mangroves I decided I would use my spook Jr since its my favorite bait.. well I keep throwing and throwing and throwing it out with no luck had a bunch of blow ups at it but nothing would just take it then all of sudden I get busted once then twice this fish wanted this spook she hit it 5 times before finally letting me get a good hook set on her 22" snook.. then a while later a little 16" red exploded on my plug... I love CRB and I have to thank Dave T and his fishy spot maps and the article the 3 P's I read that article a bunch of times and it def paid off for me this weekend!!!!My first slam! Didn't get a pic of trout tho does it still count

    CRB Slam!!

    When I am working my spook Jr I will try a lot.of different techniques.. I usually use a medium to fast technique with pauses in between about the 4th or 5th twitch but u just have to find out what retrieve is working that day
