Another great video packed full of information. The power prawn has quickly become my go to bait. Use it under a cork or with a jighead, In Murkey water I add a battle rattle.

On my last few trips offshore to artificial reefs, I’ve been throwing the 5″ Slam shady on a one oz. jig and catching quite a few species of fish; Spanish mackerel, barracuda, little tuney, large blue runners, and others. I’m waiting for the weather window to get further out and try it on amberjack.

I miss the discussion breakdown you usually have with the time stamps for different parts of the discussion. I find that very helpful.

Great information regarding shrimp lures.

I have been using a shrimp tail jig (Chubbe Shrimp by Hoagie Lures from Texas) since 2005. I mostly fished them on a 1.5 oz H style jighead in inlets and intracoastal bridges for snook. They work extremely well at night for snook. Especially slot snook. Dave Justice was doing this extensively back then and I learned a lot from him. The technics are very similar to what Marcos uses only at night.

For the snook dock lights I use a 3/8 oz jighead cast into the dark areas with a Cubbe shrimp. The Chubbie shrimp has no legs or antennas. It is best hopped 12-18” off the bottom moving it a foot or two at a time. All bites come as it is just about to hit the bottom again. The beauty is that it can be a reaction bite so the fish don’t have to even be feeding at the time. Especially in the inlets and bridges.

i like the slam shady on the flats as a search tool for fish of all kinds. Snook seem to also hit it on the drop when cast into the mangroves. Often the are on before you close the bail.
