Default FireCracker Red

<SPAN id=_ctl1_ctlTopic_ctlPanelBar_ctlTopicsRepeater__c tl1_lblFullMessage>Hit my 1st spot in the Sound about 6:15am.... water was like glass so I fished a top dog.....caught 3-4 specs, but had about 25 blow-ups, the water was very active, lots of bait and mullet. Water was clear, saw specs all over the place mostlymid teen size.

At the appropriate time, i headed to my spot west of the pass.......water was glassy again, quiet, no boats...real nice.

Fishing was not brisk by any means, but got 2 reds, one right at 27", 7/bs, the other, a23" fatty about 4.5lbs. Both caught on what I call deadmans' crab, that's a gulp crab on a Cajun Thunder, hanging dead in the water. It looks like the pinfish draw attention to it.

Nothing on live bait or a varity of lures and jigs????

I'm gulity, I kept the 27" fish, becausein a week he would be out of the slot anyway!

Hot day, but nice to catch a stud on the 4th!

27" 7lbs

23" 4.5lbs

Nice fish Jeff! I should have stayed over in my neck of the woods. Fished around docks over in the sound in the morning...kinda a late start. My buddy hooked a really nice fish. The water was so clear, we saw him come around to the front of the boat, roll right in front of us, do a nice little head shake and then...spit. Just spit the spoon right out. Caught a speck shortly there after in same spot and then bite was bye-bye.
