Default Mud Minnows

Are they any good for trout freelined like shrimp? That's all I can find for sale and I ain't got time in the mornings to catch croakers.

Can you freeline them over deeper(20ft) water like croakers or are they a bottom thing.I've never used em.

A six pound trout was weighed in last year in the GCKFA Spring tourney = caught on a bull minnow while flounder fishing. I've caught plenty of trout on them.

The last big trout I caught was on a free lines bull minnow so yes free lining them works fine, but I can't say I've done it a whole lot

more than likely they are bull minnows... that's what most shops carry... you might get to occasional stripped killifish (tiger) but more often than not it'll be bulls... great live bait for all kinds of inshore fish...

Fish the sound at night around lights with a fee-lined bull or tiger. Use a light #2 hook w/ 10# FC leader. That should answer your question.
