I launched at the Lover's Key boat launch a 7:30 and headed to Little Davis key. The tide was in the last couple of hours of a low low tide so I fished a deeper channel just off Little Davis Key. No action in the first hour so I headed into Lover's Key through Little Carlos Pass. I went into one of the cuts and caught a snapper and small redfish up against the mangroves. I drifted the east side of the mangroves heading to the north corner. I caught a couple more snappers and a 19-inch snook.

Peddled back to the cuts where I entered and hit a spot where I caught 7 redfish within an hour. A record for me. All were only within the 15-20 inch range but fun to catch.

I started moving around in hopes of finishing the slam with a trout but I wasn't able to do it. I caught everything on a gulp shrimp which seems to be my go-to bait these days.

How do you typically rig and fish the gulp shrimp? Haven't had much success with them.

I use either a 3/0 1/16th oz Owner Twistlock hook rigged weedless, or I'll use a 4/0 1/8th oz if the current is fast.

Depending on the area you are fishing, people use jig heads, or the weedless rigs mentioned. New Penney is the color of choice for me. They are killer under a popping cork as well.
