has turned off what do yall catch em on? i have had good luck on topwater but struggle to catch the redfish on anything afterthat. Maybe im not fishing in the correct depth or location. occasionally ill have a bite on a soft plastic or spoon but nothing consistent. Just wanted to see what everyone else was doing after the sun gets up. Im fishing St andrews bay btw

    I'm not in your area, but reds are reds, right?

    Try a mirrodine. It's just below the surface, and reds love 'em down south . . .
    Cheap, fast, reliable - pick two . . .

    bounce a bucktail jig off the bottom tipped with piece of lizard fish or shrimp, but that's just me.

    Try a gulp shrimp rigged carolina style. Will not work in heavy grass. In heavy grass try a popping cork with same gulp shrimp rigged shallow enough to get it out of the mentioned grass.

    what depth do yall recommend fishing in after say 9 am? im new to these redfish and have no clue on what they do after they quit biting topwater. Do they stay in the shallows or migrate to deeper water?
