And the technique is a bit different than what some people are used to.
Going out there tomorrow with a few buddies. The weather is calling for 18mph SE winds, but it seems the Rigolets should be relatively protected from a wind in that direction.
I've seen everything from an h&h cocahoe to the new matrix shad. For the longest time i was using hybrids. It doesn't really matter as long as you have the right color for the right water clarity.
Which plastic / color did you catch them on the other day?
It's pretty complicated to explain on here, but actually relatively simple IRL.
For the bridges:
1. Which side to fish
On a falling tide you want to be fishing on the east side of the bridge and throw back towards the bridge. (opposite for an incoming tide)
2. The Retrieve
Let your lure get to the bottom keeping enough slack out to feel a bite. Once it hits the bottom pop it a couple of times, reel in the slack and let it drop to the bottom again. Repeat over and over until you're back to the boat. If you're not letting it get to the bottom you are wasting your time. A lot of times you will get a hit while the bait is falling back to the bottom. (most of the time a very soft bite)
3. The Tackle
Most of the time a 3/8 ounce jighead is adequate (with a heavy wind and tide you may need a 1/2 ounce). The plastic of choice is up to you. I've seen everything from an h&h cocahoe to the new matrix shad. For the longest time i was using hybrids. It doesn't really matter as long as you have the right color for the right water clarity.
