Captain John finally listened to my advice and head out for deeper water although he waited until the end of the day and the south wind and swell turned the bite ...more off. Like Chris said almost a limit. I had mine and was working on Johns. If he listened to me in the am we definitely would have tripled the boat.
only shad lure i've ever had success with is the flutter spoon...realized too late that i only had one left! and of course i snagged it first 5 minutes! soooo....i ...more fished about 2 hours trying different stuff that i thought might work and only had one bite that came off. I was about to leave when i snag some old line attached to...a new flutter spoon!!! i swapped it onto my leader and proceeded to whack two jersey tarpon quickly before it got dark :) lucky turn of events
With most parts of most rivers blown out and the wind at killer speeds saturday we had very limited options but my buddy had some sweet spots that he was nice enough ...more to share that were not only fishable, but gave us some nice sized recently stocked rainbows as well as this nice holdover (the difference in the fight is unmistakable!)
