Caught my first Slot Redfish on a top water lure early yesterday morning.:thumbup: He was 20" even. Hit a Mirrolure Top Dog as soon as it hit the water. Top dog was rigged on 20# flouro tied to 10# braid. It was the only Red we found all day.:( Probably caught 60 or so grunts that thought they were reds.:rolleyes: Most around 12" to 14".
Did not see a single speck all day. :mad:
Spaniards were inhaling glass minnows all over the bay.:thumbsup: We boated 4 of those before heading to the house.:thumbup: Several managed to cut us off well above the wire.

Most of the fish besides the red were caught on 1/4oz white or red jig heads with some type of white Gulp tied 10# flouro. Did not seem to matter what type Gulp as long as it was white.

Netted a several dozen monster LY's for the next trip into the Gulf.

I have caught my fair share of slots & bulls on soft plastics & submerged swimmers but this was the first on a top water:thumbup:. I think he was pissed when the Top Dog donked :fishslap:him on the head.:laughing:

I usually catch blues, ladyfish & an occasional speck on top water. :whistling:
