    Thanks for posting this vid..  Gives me hope in my quest to figure out fishing this are of the River.  We just recently downsized to a more river-friendly fishing boat.  We live on the Ortega River and have just started to really fish that area you are in...  Where are you finding bait back in Goodbys?

    Yes Goodbys creek had Pogies but now mullet. Mullet were in the river too, shallow or around docks. Caught a 25" redfish on green and silver $2.50 walmart Bomber and a stripper on clear paddle tail today. Saw tarpon rolling but could not get a bite on some juicy live mullet.

    Hi thanks, but I don't go on weekends, too many boats and jet skis, even Fridays are nuts lately. 3" Bomber Chanteuse and Silver floater, dives to about 2-3'  bronze Mustad circle hooks around docks north of Goodbys, one fish per 200 casts. Fast retrieve. I call it my fish finder. 21" trout Monday and 25" red Wednesday. Walmart has them bottom shelf were $2.50 now $3.36 I think.
