Another nice day in the 10,000 islands

Forgot my cooler with lunch and water bottles, and only had one bottle in my cup holder, so I only lasted 3 hours, but had a productive day anyways. Redfish, trout, snook, and black drum were all willing to bite.

    Excellent, glad you are enjoying the PDL also. You seem to have the fishing there down pat too. Again what soft plastic do you like throwing?

    Kayak Rookie...and loving it.
    Fishing beautiful Destin / Ft Walton Beach area!

    Gulp or Doa jerk shad. With DOA I like the larger one, with Gulp I prefer the standard one. I start off with the jerk shad to target reds, then switch to a big paddletail to get the snook and trout. Often I end up getting all three on the jerk shad, but if I am specifically trying to get the snook, the paddletail works better. I use the Berkley Grass Pig, just because I have had success with it and it is cheap. It is in the bass aisle at basspro, not with the salt stuff. I like the gambler big ez too. I fish them all weedless on an owner twistlock #5 1/8 oz swimbait hook. I am not a lure switcher, so I keep the same hook all day and just change out the plastic. You can accidentally throw that hook over a mangrove and just reel slow and it will fall out and right into the strike zone. It also can be fished slow over oysters without getting hung.
