hardcore fishing

Headed to hopedale lagoon wed morning in my kayak. I've been told to use matrix and vortex shad under a cork. I usually use live bait but I'll try about anything after my last trip. If anyone has any tips or tricks they would share ,I thank you very much.

cold fish

During the winter when nothing else will bite, I take the plastic off the jig head and put a peice of shrimp on the hook and fish it on the bottom for sheephead and drum. I fish holes that I know hold fish. They don't hit it as often when the plastic tail is on it. Sraight on the bottom, and don't move it till the fish hits.
