Gear Used On This Trip
- Rods Used:
- Reel: Daiwa BG MQ 3000
- Line: 10lb PowerPro and 15lb Power Pro
- Leader: 20lb Ande Monofilament
The concept behind this trip was to start out fishing flooded structure and drains in anticipation of the big tide coming in.
Then the objective was to get out of the strong NE wind and fish the outgoing tide in protected creek systems.
This plan would allow us to follow the fish as they moved off the flats and into easier areas to feed during a lower tide period.
Throughout the trip, we were switching between 3 different rigs: the NEW Salt Strong Mulligan Lure, the Slam Shady 2.0, and a live shrimp underneath a popping cork.
The Power Prawn USA and Mulligan have simply been crushing fish this entire week.
Hoss Helix Hooks were the MVP of the trip because they allowed us to fish way up into the grass with artificial lures.
Weedless presentations are critical for fishing creek systems during low tide periods.
If the fish are able to, they’ll move into the tall grass to feed.
Later on in the trip, we found one area filled with debris and structure that the redfish were just sitting in.
We caught a redfish on just about every cast!
The bite was slow to begin with but the key factor in sparking some eats was moving water and current.
A slip float with live shrimp worked well in the creeks while artificial lures had more success closer to the flats.
