Goin to the beach Wednesday and wanted to do a lil inshore fishing. What do I use? I have a few spooks and tube baits I'm taking but is there anything that they are wearing out? I don't even know what I'm fishing for to be honest but I'm goin anyway

Key word- baitfish, use doas, artificial baits, you can catch all the croaker you want with a weight hook and dead shrimp! :lol:

I've had good luck jigging those gulp shrimp. I've used the floater method but have had less results than with the artificial shrimp. Good luck.

lol i could go on for days and day on what to use and where.. but honestly its one of those things you gotta know what to look for and read what fish want.. but i will tell you my #1 goto mc nasty goto bait for trout in shallow water right now (less than 8') is this http://www.texstackle.com/product/mirro ... 1805-1.htm
the middle size mirrodine with chartruse back.. trout are crunching on menhaden and croakers right now due to post spawn conditions trying to fatten back up and get energy back.. this is the absolute best bait and will out fish live bait if you give it a chance.. but i will warn you trout aren't the only ones that like them.. be prepared to have several backups cause spanish mackeral love them.. presentation is easy.. but the key is to be slooooooow and let the bait do the work... cast it out, twitch twice, literally count to 4 seconds before twitching it twice again and repeat steps.. they will crush it on the fall!!! fish parallel with the beach in the first set of troughs (deep channel right off beach where the wave break).. trout will suspend in the troughs waiting for bait to get washed down them...

I also brought rattletraps, spooks, jigs 1/8 ounce and few others. Spoons, roostertails, floaters, weights, leaders, spinning baits, and couple different depth crankbaits. Goin by the tackle shop to get some gulp shrimp and few other things when I get there.

If your fishing in the surf get a gotcha plug and wear out ladyfish\bluefish all day. If you see dolphins in the surface it's go time :cool

What's a gotcha plug? I got a cork with brass beads that's for popping cork with shrimp, some 4/0 mustard hooks, some gulp 3" new penny color shrimp not the "alive" ones. They are like $20 for about 8-10 plastics :roll: no thank you. Ill look for the gotcha plug. I would like to catch something during the day right behind the motel. White fluke be any good?

Well I can't post a picture but this is the site and what the look like... http://seastriker.com/gotcha/

My favorite color is silver body/orange head or chartreuse/orange head. Make sure you put a wire leader on cuz those fish will shred your line. But all we do is wade out to the sand bar or as far as your comfortable going and fling that thing with a spinning rod cuz you can get real good distance with it. It's kind of like working a spook it darts back and forth under the water but you'll defiinitley get a work out with that thing. If they are out there you will have the time of your life.

Well fished 3 hrs with raw shrimp and not a bite last night. Gonna get on it hard in the morning with my gulp shrimp in some shallows. The water is real rough and its hard to wade out where I want to

Oh and by the way if it's really rough it's almost impossible to fish anything! That sucks :x
