Five flounder (2 keepers) and tons of croaker and lizards. Lost three drum and $7 of tackle on the same oyster bed just before dark. Also had two topwater blowups to show for my 2 hours of topwater throwing. All the flounder came on gulp.

Fun Day! Now my one tip. Start using Zman Paddletails and Pro Cure rather than feeding expensive gulp to stupid pinfish. Make sure you take a little tube of super glue to glue the bait to the jighead. You will use 1 bait all day if you keep your leader from getting chewed up by the oyster beds.

The first one maybe because I wasn't expecting it but the second the fish just flat out missed.

The pinfish weren't too bad today. The first half of the day I fished unscented paddle tails out of curiosity but had no luck at all. I have tried pro cure but it really doesn't seem to come close to competing with gulp. I am hoping to use procure more so i can try lures with better action. Gulp is just a big smelly turd on a hook but the fish love it.

I just have no confidence in something like a gulp shrimp that has absolutely no action at all. I'm just a big Zman fan. I like the diezel minnowz. It has a slit on the bottom I fill with pro cure. I like all colors as long as it's pearl.

I'll be paddling Topsail per usual this weekend. Saw/caught plenty of reds in 3 different locations yesterday after work, with some upper slots eating. My friend from Greensboro was supposed to come visit and catch some w/me, but he's gotta work Sat :rolleyes: If around Sat, lemme know..
