Bob, there are far more than 50 big trout in there! One of the main contributors to this IMO is that a lot of the Lagoon regulars, myself included, release a lot of what we catch especially the bigger fish over 25 inches. The only times I have kept fish in excess of 6lbs is in tournaments and there are plenty of fish in there over that mark and much bigger. My biggest lagoon trout was just over 32 inches.

Chris nice to see your post on our thread. I still think about our visit last Saturday afternoon. Found some neat Google Map slots to go down and see the Lagoon from above. Will post a site where I was looking at Zoom baits and they had a lake in Geogria where they where catching fish. Got up above the lake and moved over to. Gulf Shores and then started looking at the Lagoon in the upper, middle and lower sections. You can see the darker areas which would be the deeper water and then the shelves you where talking about some what. I was looking at the Super Zoom flukes with paddles and then I was on the DOA site looking at the huge Shrimps they have and thought these would be great to try next April and May for these big Female Specks. If you think their is more than 50 large fish in this Lagoon man I hate to think how many there really is. Look foreward to seeing you again Chris on my next trip to Orange Beach I love your store it has every thing a guy like me needs to catch big Specks and Reds. Kayak Bob

If you are fishing in a Kayak would this be nice to catch.. Unknow site or fisherman but nice fish.

You may also be interested in this/these product(s)
  • If you go down to the bottom of the page on the site look for othere trap lures and colors as other rattle traps availble in other colors if you see a color on a fresh water rattle trap tell me what color you like
The web site would only let me show one display of lures.

I want to order four one oz rattle traps for fishing this spring for specks.

What would be your four colors you would order????



Thank you. KaBob

Will be making a order soon Bass Tracker. I just ordered 22 defective rattle tops from E Bay as they have minor defects in the painting or the eyes did not come out right. These are vintage ten to fiveteen old lures no hooks. Will pick out what I want and send some to be custom painted in Spring Texas the way I want them to look. Found a neat site for tides, moon phases and a map of the laggon with google earth today . KaBob

google earth. This is one of the best sites I have studied. On the above upper right hand corner enter
your place you fish and save it for your reference.bob

I caught a hoss of a spec in fowl river a couple weeks ago on a $1.99 rattltrap from BPS, it's was the silver and blue one. I've caught 5 slot reds on the same one in the same river pretty much every time I go. Their rattltraps are cheap, but seem to work very well.

Bass Tracker and I are going to the Little Lagoon tomorrow early in the A M will try some Rattle traps on the bottom will let you know how we do. I have a bunch of 3/4 oz Rattle Trap Reject bodies coming in this week. They have color flaws which do not make them good for the stores but for the price I am payng its a steal. The fish don't care if they are screwed up a little. Will put some new hooks on them and some will have spinner blades a number three Colorado blade on the back instead of a hook. Middle hooks may be one size larger.

It will be a great learning day for me. When it comes to Teaching they don't get much better than Bass Tracker 66 fishing in Baldwin County, Alabama. Bob

Absolutely, I make as little noise as possible when fishing for the big girls. I think even the hum of the trolling motor alerts them. I use really light line (10lb braid) and light fluoro (15-20lb). Never even come close to my biggest specks when fishing from a boat.

Thanks for the post Fish Golf Drink. That is some pretty fish you put on there. I think you are right. I got my Kayak and Canoe all ready to go. I even have a Electric Motor hooked up to each one to get me from the boat launch to the fishing spots to save my poor old shoulders. My flats boat will be ready in a week and will be out there with it again. I had to put new steering on it today. Froze up. Will make a post latter on prevention of salts on your boat and motor. We forget about this stuff and it cost me about $700. for repairs.

We went to the Little Lagoon this mourning Bass Tracker and I. Got started about 3:30 A.M. no minnow activity and only caught one speck and two Flounder but for me it was school week. He taught me the ropes and how to fish the lights correctly. You need to cast very far from the lights so you wont spook them must be very quite went to the pass and fished and I think I found a good flounder gigging spot. Sandy and shallow will try it latter this Summer.

Got to go to work and make money to pay for boat repairs. So much for being retired.

What flouro carbon line do you like the best that the fish can hardly see?
