Default fishing the flats

does anyone know what the reds might be feeding on this time of the year best , im gonna catch some bull minnows , pinfish and what ever else type of live bait i can catch in a net , plus i got a ton of lures and artifical baits

oh and would some home made chum consisting of ground up / rotten shrimp heads , freezer burnt boston mackeral and flounder heads be a good chum for reds and specs

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt">I pretty much stick with a 1 oz silver or gold spoon on the flats at Trout Point NAS.

it depends on how shallow you want/can get....structure is always good for redfish..also look for bait...popping corks with gulps or live shrimp work, a gold or copper spoon will work, just have to work it differant ways till you find the way they like, also top water plugs will work you will know when a redfish hits it

Redfish love fiddler crabs if you can get them and they're alot cheaper than live shrimp. Easier to keep alive for a long time too! Sheepshead love them too!
