Got out on the water today after school at around 4:30 I'm guessing, due to the fact that Wakulla Beach was white capping, and made the smart decision to relocate to a more wind covered area.Rob Baker (T-N-T fishing guide), his cousin and I all hit the water with very little success for a few hours until the wind calmed down and the sun got down. Then we started to pick up some nice looking fish. While searching I was throwing the gold ADL spoon for the first time and hooked up with a pig! Well, not the right fish... but a start LOL!
Rob was whoopin' up on me at first with this pig of a trout on his Strike King jig. He apparently knew about a secret oyster bar that had produced for him before and definitely paid off, as you can tell, although he couldn't' hide it from me for long. I saw that he was fighting that monster to the boat and high tailed it over to check out all the commotion. From then on out we were thick into the reds!
Now I will brag on the one knocker a bit by saying I was throwing the Mirrowlure Top Dog just to give it a chance at some fish with my pink Skitterwalk gone and all, and that thing didn't catch not one fish in a spot where there were reds every where! So I thought, well, the heck with that and quickly tied on a one knocker with new Shure Set hooks on 'em. Not two casts later a red fish had inhaled my one knocker all the way down to the crushers! Man, I thought, that Mirrowlure sure does suck. LOL
Needless to say that one knocker is a great topwater and boy, oh boy were all the reds on that thing. I had a red straighten out a 2x strong treble hook, and two other reds fall for it within 15 minutes.
I'm lovin' it.
