    Default Flats near Lockwood's folly

    Help! What do y'all use for artificial bait? Seams like people are using live bait but I like artificial. In 3 days I only got one red with a chartruse tail shrimp on a cork.

    DOA Shrimp with a dab of pro cure works for me down there. Also Gulp Swimming Mullet, 4" pearl color.

    The fishing been much tougher this year than in the past.
    So yes, lots of us are going with live bait.
    I start with topwaters but will toss in a live bait if I have it. ......ICM

    My wife keeps saying I don't listen to her .... or something like that.

    I think the trout's leave this area as it warms up after winter I've only seen reds , flounder and sheepshead this week. Couldn't get any of them in the boat though.

    A "real fisherman" ? Are you really that proud of yourself?
