I have caught several red drum in the surf using mirrolures. I would like to catch some using Gulp on jig heads.
Few questions--
1. What size jig heads do you normally use on Gulp shrimp surf fishing?
2. Do you ever do a double rig using something like Gulp shrimp on the bottom and Gulp swimming mullet on the top? How about a rig like this for spec trout or flounder?

Thanks

From 1/4 oz to 1 oz. bucktails.

I never fish a double rig for Reds.
And always a circle hook for bait with either a Fish Finder rig, Carolina rig.
You can substitute Gulp for bait.


How about a rig like this for spec trout or flounder?

MirrOlures for Trout.
Jig heads with Gulp or another soft plastic will catch all 3 species.
Live bait or Gulps for Flounders.
Hope this helps. ....... ICM

My idea of drum fishing is different than probably a lot of people here when it comes to the surf. I'm not targeting slot or below slot drum. In fact I want them to stay away from my bait. It's the mamas and papas I want. Primarily a homemade single hook leader made with 100 pound mono leader line. no roll weight. Most times running a Half or whole crab on an 8/0- 12/0 hook, or even a nice 4-6" inch long piece of mullet sides cut in a long tapering triangle shape. Another bait I like is a corncob mullet.
