One of the best days of fishing for Harold & me.
First 2 stops caught 37 Spikes.
Switched out lures & every lure worked.
Moved several times, next 7 spots, nothing, zero, nada.
Negative low tide, water was not moving.
But we did go to a honey hole.
Stop# 10 & found another 17 Spikes. Up our count to 50.
Pulled a fat 22", (CPR) amongst all those Spikes.
Stopped for lunch, before leaving.
Decide to give it one more cast
Harold now has a 18", then a 21" (CPR). We couldn't leave now.
Kept drifting this one area, that led to another 25 Spikes.
Bringing our total to 75 Spikes, a short Flounder, a small Blue & 3 keepers. All released.
This was on a day when the bite was supposed to be bad, go figure. ....... ICM
I hear you on the trebles, they get in the way after while. Last time we were in your area I used Storm shrimp in clear with orange belly, the specks tore it up. ProCure always give my lures a bath....
I will tell you something that is fun to do when they are biting like this. Fish the lure with the hooks off and see how long they hold onto it. I believe this is a good way to test scents like Procure by using it on some lures and not on others. When I use to fish bass tournaments we would almost always fish without hooks the few practice days before the tournament so they would bite again when it counted. I have actually landed (netted) many bass that would not let go of the lure even without hooks.
