Has anybody been pickin up a red or two from the surf? If so is there any bait in particular that you have been using? I wont ask for spots cause that is a dead end on here but I was just curious as to what you all have been doin?

I have caught reds from the beach before, I haven't tried lately. I used fresh dead shrimp on the bottom. If they are they there they'll hit it.

I'vecaught my fair share this winter. I use fresh dead shrimp and finger mullet/cut mullet. I've had better luck when it is a little rougher. I think the current/waves stir up the bottom and bring the reds in closer. Try down past Portofino in one of the washouts or use one of the points to wade the baits out. Tight lines.

If available, a live or recently deceased finger mullet is a killer. Otherwise a big old shrimp will work. I used to salt my shrimp to make them tougher, but got lazy and quit. The nibblers are going to bother you anyhow.



If you can cast to the first bar, that's far enough. Longer is better sometimes.



The redfish come in usually in the late fall/winter to spawn. The redfish spawn outside the passes and the bad winds blow the spawn into the bays through the passes where they grow up. C2

don't mean to pry, but would you be willing to give up the general area you're fishing?:toast
