Bunk, Here is my version of the float rig, with apologies to many sources:

You can't see the bobber stop, but that is tied in above the green bead depending on how deep you have to set the float, then comes the bead, then the slider float, then a 3/8 ounce no snag sinker (that slides on the line), then a swivel, and last a 16 inch flouro carbon leader smelled t0 a 3/0 circle hook. Hope that helps you get a good one. YD

When the tide brought the peanuts out of reach the acton was over. Today I switched to an old one piece 7 foot Fenwick Fenglass 847, I wrapped in the 80's, and 10 lb spinning reel. and as a result, I was able to cast the light float and split shot into the wind without the birds nest on the round reel.
Nice work dog. I plan to be on the dawn patrol this sunday.

More porgys barely legal size and a puffer from the yak. Not sure why i took it out with the wind i was dealing with. Lots of shorts and dropped the biggest porgys of the day. Still managed a nice dinner for me and the mrs.

Starting to hear some positive reports again from deep water so may have one last shot at them before the season closes.



There was definitely a good amount of fish in the back creeks post Hermine but that bite is mostly over by now. Guys fishing from their boats docked in the creek did better than me

I don't attribute it to the bait because the bait has been back there for 3 months now without the fish.
my apologies for hijacking thread. But thanks for the insight. Lets see what happens tomorrow.

nomoco out front dawn, tail end of the incoming to slack high tide. Light E wind. Birds sporadically working, peanuts close to the wash and what looked like spearing a bit farther out. Managed some smaller snappers on metal+teaser

FYI I filleted the keeper I caught at the mouth of a creek in shallow water and it was loaded with long skinny red worms. Couldn't eat it knowing this condition. Anybody else have this experience?

Got out today looking for the albies, which were a no show . Picked away at the small blues and hickories, which got old fast. I did manage two flat ones, one being short and fat, on a rattletrap.

talk about matching the hatch, looks just like a peanut! Are those salt water grade out of the box?

I don't think so, I switch out the split ring and the treable is a 1/0. I was playing with the idea to put a single hook, or just a flag in the back. He took the front hook and the rear treable snagged his gill plate. These rattletraps are good for bass, blues, weakies, and I guess fluke.

Bay, Several hundred thousand casts ago, I believe I ran into you catching fluke in your usual haunts using crank baits! Nice work again. YD

some rattletraps are meant for freshwater, others have stainless hardware and can take the salt.
