baitfish or shrimp pattern will do fine. Where to fish them CREEKS or dop off in river. Popping rig with DOA on spinner? I have never caught a red or trout but I KEEP TRING. Even hired a guide but had no luck at all. We had bananas on the boat. don't go fishing with me. I need help.
If you've never caught a red before, then I wouldn't recommend trying to figure them out with a fly rod. Definitely bring spinning tackle and a popping cork with a big swim bait and procure or 4 inch gulf shrimp under a popping cork first lot fish up against the banks
