Croakers are hardy baits, live longer and easier than those Summer Pogies, and catch fish.
Instead of watching me catch bait....YOU catch bait! Plus, it's fun catching bait. (and you may even hang into a big Red when you're catching the Croakers, too. It happens all the time!)
THIS 22 POUND REDBASS WAS CAUGHT ON A TINY PIECE OF SHRIMP AS THE REST OF THE CREW WAYLAID THE BAIT SIZED CROAKERS)
Then comes serious pole bending time, just offshore a bit. We either "chum-up" our own shark action or get in the slick of a working Shrimp boat. Which is a summer time ritual.
It's all about being COASTAL....ya think Redfish pull? No not really compared to a 6 foot shark on light tackle, just a mile from the inlet.
NO LONG BOAT RIDES REQUIRED THIS TIME OF YEAR.
