Jack is right. blue pepper pearl.5/0 doa hook.1/32oz bullet. I catch flounder trout reds and black snapper like this.The key is retreval speed.keeping your bait in the strike zone long enough to get bit. Theres more to it than luck.

Well I just returned from Academy on Davis (last min. christmas shopping) I looked for the Gulp jerk shad and did not find one....plenty of shrimp,pogy,and swimming mullet.Are these producing any red bites? Sure wanted to pick up some of these jerk shads but maybe I'll have a chance to run in tomorrow and look a little longer.:hoppingmad

We've been fishing the Gulp jerk shad in both the black and ivory, green and orange and the bright green. I usually Carolina rig what I fish with a 2-3 oz lead and a 4/0 or 5/0 wide gap worm hook. My son prefers using lighter lead, we rig some with a 3/4 oz Texas rig but the same size hooks.

Something I have started doing different is using a brass weight and glass bead for a bit of a noise maker. This is new for me so I still experimenting. The results so far have been good.

We using it mostly for reds with gulp jerk shad or zoom baits, we did pick up a couple of small black groupers off the old 3-Mile bridge. One was on this brass texas rig, the other on a carolina rig. Both were young-uns.
