Default More Flounder, Trout, & Croakers - Destin 10/20/08

Went back to Norriego Point this afternoon for about 3 hours. I found a sweet spot on the Harbor side & hit the Flounder pretty strong. Scott kept trying spots and ended up with mostly weeds & grass. Then for some silly reason we chose to move down to the Point / Harbor entrance & try there but the fish weren't that thick there (at least where & when we were there).

Amanda: using pink Gulp strips on Carolina rig
6 Flounder
1 Sand Perch
1 big Lizardfish
1 medium Pinfish

Scott: using 3" chartruse Gulp grub tails on Carolina rig
2 Flounder
1 Trout
2 Croakers
1 Pinfish

We both had several more fish on that got off the hook before making it to shore.

Nice, cool afternoon. =) I keep hoping one of these afternoons to hook into a big un' =)

Sounds like yall had a blast. Before long you should begin to start hooking into some of the doormats that are staging to leave.

If they were, they were just barely legal. (( I can't ever remember to take a ruler :banghead )) If I had to guestimate, I'd say they were all somewherebetween 10" - 14".

I've just been fishing / catching for the fun of it. Everything goes back. Now if I got a nicebig one it would definately be going home to meet my frying pan! =)

Gulp strips = the Gulp that comes in a sheet instead of "fish" shape- so you can cut your own strips out of it. That's probably a horrible description, let me find a picture.. We've been doing well on the strips and curly tails Gulp.

You can get a bag ofGulpwith the sheet or you can get them pre-cut (pre-cut strips are tiny!). The sheets are cheaper and I like making my own strips so I can choose sizes and shapes. Here's a pic - I buy the hot pink color.

One more thing, I like these better than real cut bait because they last longer and are hard to get "picked off".
