Skunked Today

I thought today was going to be a good day chasing specks. When I left Treasure Pass, birds were everywhere. Unfortunately so were the gafftops. It was too rough to venture farther out, so I went after reds in the marsh. No luck.

nothing wrong with a box full of gafftops

yes specks are more preferred but you catch whats biting and gafftops are good eating catfish

Yeah I eat the hell out of them. My wife is very picky, she can't tell the difference.

Only thing bad about a box of gafftop is cleaning the ice chest when you get home. Other than that, great eating fish. Family loves them fried up in bite sized pieces.

Every gafftop I've caught this summer was on plastic. Hard plastic jerk baits and soft plastic matrix.

Gafftops hit plastic.

Caught 5 in 5 casts with a matrix Shad a few weeks ago. It's enough to pack up and leave quickly.
