Thanks for the post buckshot. Beautiful looking redfish and I like the picture with the lure still in it's mouth. Sounds like you were fishing from shore or bridge, no boat, is that right? Any information on what the tide was doing or water clarity? Trying to piece together why they would only hit suspended baits. Thanks again for the post and pic.

yep...no boat...last 2 hours before low...thru ebb ...first 2 hours of the rise was the most active times. water was fairly clear but not"too" clear. so much of that bright green slimy "grass" that bottom bumping a leadhead just didn't work...just loaded up the bait...even with a 17 or a storm suspending mullet i was constantly cleaning the bait...check that pic...that fish hit with a little grass on the bait... that was on the 7-8 of feb...the first bridge i hit on sat morn actually had a skim of ice on the water...it was a cold thursday and friday...i pulled the first pup from under the ice...that was a first and a real thrill.
