Default Red Fish

I have a few honey holes loaded with reds from ten inches to over 30 the only problem is no matter what time of day or tide they wont eat, every now in then they bite on gulp shrimp but the last few days i been out probally 20 hours and only hooked two and only landed one. I saw over 30 different reds, no matter what i throw at them they wont eat. Iam not alot using live bait, i like to have more of a challenge. SO does anyone have any special combos they get alot of hits on...?

Cast net live bait and put them out there with little lead as possible 1/2oz or so. I always liked an out going tide with fast moving water for Reds.

Yeah deadsticking Gulps! are about the only way to get those fish in the sound to eat right now. Water is very clear and there is plenty of bait for them to eat. Plenty of reds there but getting them to eat is pretty tough.
