My favorite redfish lure at least in the warm months would have to be the safety pin style spinnerbait rigged with a gulp paddletail or gulp swimming mullet with a chartruese tail or at least some chartruese in the bait and a gold blade for our murky tannin stained waters have caught me more reds and flounder then any other baits combined except for the spook jr topwater early morning but the spinnerbait in spring through fall until the water temps dip into the low 60s is my go to lure slow rolled by grass lines with scattered oysters or along deep troughs by oyster bars and pitched into pockets along grass lines and under docks is a deadly technique at least for me it’s my confidence bait and every good angler knows what you use with confidence will work better then something your just not sure of but I’m talking about what I use where you guys in central and south fl live and fish the spinnerbait probably would not work so well because of your clear water in murky water this bait shines it has all the 3 things that makes a great lure for dirty water flash vibration and the gulp gives it scent and when I’m using a paddletail on it like the saltstrong 2.0 slam shady I tip it with a piece of fish bites and add a little inshore scent procure scent to it so it covers all 3 sences that fish and actually all animals and fish use to hunt there prey sight sound and scent works for me😉👍

Loved this conversation! It provided validation that focusing on the key lures that are proven to work has been the logical choice for my purchases instead of spending money randomly to fill a tackle box/bag.

Question for Richard… will you provide info on the hook sharpener you mentioned?

Great podcast guys! Narrowed it down to what works on your lures. I fish mostly down in the Keys…for me has been has hands down been both Power Prawns and Slam Shady 2.0 nailing fish left and right most of the time. Another thing to share…I also do night fishing during the spring and summer on bridges when usually top water lures come in play in the darkness…usually an army of Snook and Tarpons show up in the middle of the night hanging with the current and they’re usually on fire waiting along side the bridges…especially on full moons. Next time I got out there…I’ll share a report for night time fishing. Looking forward on those new hooks!
