Ok, sportsfans. I was draggin a Mann Stretch 25 at, about as slow asI could go,, And that's important, cause when I actually CATCH reds I have been going VERY slow. The action on those stretches is , in my opinion, BETTER GOING SLOW. Because the water was so clear I used a green/blue realistic looking lure. Otherwise, I'd use the pink or red/white to attract. I was trolling on the down stream side of the 3Mi. Bridge, parallel to the bridge, outgoing tide. I went real close to the bridge, but ya gotta be careful, cause there's artificial "reefage" down there and occasional boats fishing that one should always be courteous to. The best part 'bout this catch was it was 27 inch exactly, so it came home and made my Teri Lynn very happy. She's a Cajun cook and loves "GROCERIES!" Oh, and Josie Wales, We also got our share of yummy Stone Crabs too!
