Default More slot red behind Grand Marlin

Tried the grass edges about a 1/4 of mile away from behind The Grand Marlin and nailed more red. They're everywhere out there. Took some pics of one.

Yea, east front behind grand marlin and between the two docks is where they are. There is an edge that goes from the start of Garson bridge goes east parallel with the one dock behind grand marlin. Check google maps you'll see what I mean. The Grass flats are good too. There is also an opening in the grass sort of in front of the Jet ski rental place that is deeper for some reason. Like all the grass surrounding it is super shallow, but that one opening is like 10 or so feet. When I coasted by I saw what looked like huge speck, maybe red..they were not mullet. Tried a lure but no go and just kept going to the dock. For the reds/big specks I use a sabiki to catch pin fish/croaker in the grass flats or the dock at grand marlin and fill my livewell. I hook them right in front of the dorsal with a 3/0 circle and an 8oz pyramid on a fish finder rig ( don't use 2 hooks apparently its illegal ). They will grab it and start running, let them run for a bit then, with the drag still loose, pull back to give yourself some room then on your way back down tighten your drag a bit and pull back with a medium tug, not too hard or you'll pull the hook right out of the fishes mouth. Good luck EDIT: Doesn't matter what time from what ive found. I caught some around 7am and these around 2pm.

Its been a slow year all around. The difference in catches on the piers for example compared to last year is absurd.
