I fished the intracoastal yesterday. I talked to a couple of locals and they all where suggesting i use shrimp. I got out there at about 8:30 and fished till 10, and all i caught where 2 sting rays, 1 eel, and 2 little ole turd hustling blues with the shrimp. I went back at 7:30 and fished with some stew meat I had got and marinated it in Italian dressing and garlic powder. I caught a blue right off that weighted about 10lb and another one a little later on that weighted around 2 lb. I know the stew meat usually does better than this; I am guessing that storm that had just blown through had the fish shut down. What do ya'll usually get ur bigger cats on down in this area?
