Default Baitfish tactic

I Hadnt Seen ThIs Mentioned Before, So I Thought Id Share As I Found ThIs Pretty Effective. (Btw, I Have No Idea Why Every First Letter Is Capitalized. Apparently That What It Does When I Post From My Phone. Sorry)

Anyway, The Other Night, I Was Fishing A Soft Plastic Minnow And Could Feel The Pinfish Hitting It. So, Just For Kicks, I Got Out My BaitFisH Pole And Rigged A Sz8 Hook Up With OneOf Those Little Mini TAil Grubs For Crappie They Sell At Walmart. I Rigged It Up With A Half Ounce Sliding Sinker And Caught A Bunch Of PInfish. So, The Next Day, Before My Trip To J's Beach, I Went To Catch Some For Cut Bait. I Was Getting A Lot If HiTs, But Mostly THEY WERE JUST TEARING OFF THE LITTLE TENTACLES ON THE GRUB. ONCE THE TENTACLES WERE GONE THEY WOULD LOSE INTEREST AND I HAD TO PUT ON A NEW ONE. FINALLY, I DECIDED TO RIG IT UP BACKWARDS SO THE TENTACLES WOULD FLARE AROUND THE LEADING END OF THE LURE AND THE HOOK WAS ON THE TRAILING END THEY WERE HITTING. I KILLED IT AND IN A FEW MINUTES, HAD ALMOST A DOZEN PINFISH IN THE BUCKET. ALSO CAUGHT A PIGFISH. ANYWAY, IF YOU WANT PINFISH FOR BAIT, THOSE LITTLE THINGS ARE CHEAP, PRETTY DURABLE WHEN RIGGED LIKE THAT, AND DEADLY IN WHITE, THOUGH FLUORESCENT YELLOW WORKS OCCASIONALLY TOO.

Dang good tip. Like the fact that you kept working through the problem and coming up with new answers. Can't tell if you are an engineer or an artist?

"A quick drawing" lmao!!! That is a freakin awesome drawing! Proper shading and everything...

I don't think you need to put up a picture...the drawing is better.
