try to catch you some white trout, I seem to have the best luck with using them for cut bait for reds, menhaden work well too. I've also made religion out of throwing a chum bag behind the boat when I go out
Man I tell ya.. I was using live shrimp, dead shrimp, and artifical lures, not to mention trolling with a stretch 25 at about 3 knots. I havent hooked up with a single bite. Now I'm hearing that they are all about Pogies and Menhaden. Oh and on tuesday they like cut bait.. I cant keep every type of bait in the boat.. LOL!! I feel like hunting the Reds are like finding Ole Nessie.. I'm about to just break down and hire a Cpt..Can someone help a recently relocated fisherman/spearfisherman on what to use for these redfish I keep hearing about? I'd love to catch one, haven't even seen one yet except in pics. Is live bait the answer? I've trolled with a couple different lures thru where the pelicans were diving, etc. Nada.... slow, fast, is speed important?
