Default Specs

Had specs blowing up all around me today at sunset, wouldn’t touch a doa shrimp on a popping cork though, tried both Bone color and Amber with gold flake. Any suggestions to as what they may hit on, going back in the morning.

Never had them turn their nose up at a live shrimp free lined.

Outside of live bait, any top water lures y’all recommend?

Got to match what they are feeding on. I would try a small white fluke on a light jig head

Thanks, I never saw any bait fish. That’s why I was going with the shrimp. I just hope they are still there tomorrow!

Could be, they were getting airborne looked like a trout. Close to redfish point before the pass. If there’s mullet like that shouldn’t I had hung a red or a trout though? I was in a kayak so I had limited visibility as I was almost level with them.

Yes sometimes other fish follow the mullet but not often because the purpose hit the mullet schools. Rig a treble hook up and snatch the mullet or cast net them.

If they were jumping out of the water it was probably mullet, don't really see trout jump out like that

I have fished for specks for over 50 years. I love to find them blowing up on baits. When you find them doing that, they will hit anything that hits the water. I don't think if was trout you were seeing, but I could be wrong.
