Decided it was high time to hit two of my favorite SShore spots,the Parish Line Canal and the PowerLine Pilings and started off at the Parish Line Canal,tossing a Spro frog(no owls in sight,thank goodness)and switched over to Zoom Speed Worms,Junebug Red,with only a micro-bass to show for all dat and think the Speed Worm spit out micro-bass vs the other way around!!Decided to jig the numerous and redfish-friendly PowerLine Pilings with redfish candy(Berkley Gulp,Swimming Mullet,mated to custom-made 3/8 painted jig heads)and used both intuition and knowledge of W Lady P to pick off some nice reds,hooked 5 and boated 4,from 17 inches to 20 inches and unfortunately lost biggest red that woulda rounded out solo limit!!Had fun and saw fellow in nice Nautic Star and asked if he caught any fish,to which he replied,'Caught some nice waves' and I showed him the biggest red of today.Headed back tomorrow and hope to stick a few more 'grillers' in de box and ya never know,might stumble upon some specks!!Dat Chartreuse Swimming Mullet is bout de only soft plastic I need for specks,reds,flounders,striped bass,croakers,blue catfish,etc,my 'Go-To' bait!!!Love it when a decent day of fishing happens and follows a tried-and true pattern!!Think this just the tip of de redfish iceberg!!!
