For the last few weeks this is what I have been using to put the trout and the red drum in the boat.
My favorite set-up is the Berkley "Gulp Alive" 3" white shrimp under the Cajun Thunder rattle float. I use the same hook you find in a DOA shrimp when I rig it under the float. The brass beads are very important!







When I rig the shrimp or a fluke for casting by it self,,,,I use a flutter hook like these. This works better for the red drum in the shallow water.


Here is the Berkley Power Bait that works good at night by its self. It has a rattle in it, its weighted, and it also glows in the dark.




Here is one of the new for 2009 Pflueger SupremeXT freshwater reels that I have been using for a while now with no problems at all with the reel.
It was also used a few weeks ago to catch amberjack offshore.


Here is a sneak preview of the new 2009 Pflueger Medalist reel,,,I will be using these for inshore fishing next season. This is one of the 60 size.

One thing I forgot to tell you guys,,,The "Gulp Alive" doesn't have the same chemicals that are found in the regular Gulp. It is different!
I had the reps from Berkley in the boat the other day and we talked about it. I thought it was the same.......

Thanks for the tips Capt. Its getting cool up here and today the wind is howling like crazy. Still keeping you in mind for the Va Beach fishing. About 2 or so weeks Im going to put the boat on the trailer and take it down. Will keep you posted.

Dasssss right.


The key is to snap it (Or snatch it real fast) to get it to click. Not an easy pull. That wont work.
The float will travel about a foot when you do it right.
You want to do it about every 10 seconds or longer.
Dont work it to fast.

Another thing is to not have a lot of slack in your line, because they will hit it when the shrimp is falling, so be ready!
