    Not a Trout...

    A friend invited me on his boat yesterday and I hooked this thing in 70 feet of water 4 miles offshore.

    At first I thought my bucktail was snagged...

    I was using a 7 ft jigging rod, 8 oz white bucktail with a pink gulp 6" grub.

    Shit works like a charm.

    Fuck fly fishing.

    Small fish, crowded streams, annoying people ETC.

    Re: Not a Trout...

    I found the swiming mullet works better than the gulp...But looks like you had fine success on it.

    Good man.

    Just sold all my fly fishing shit.

    PINNING IS WINNING

    Re: Not a Trout...

    Nice flatty...or should I say fluke as yous gois in Joisey say...

    I don't know about 70' of water but they do eat clousers though...I caught a couple off the beach in IBSP last year, at least there was something to make up for the striper skunking.
    That bucktail / grub combo is the go-to for spin guys back in Va...I was confused by what "bucktail" meant thinking it might resemble some sort of fly, I mean there is some deer butt hair on it, but the rest is a big wad of lead...
