Chasing the Slots

These last couple of weeks have been so busy with me personally. My wife and I moved into our new home in Williamsburg and getting on the water just wasn't going to happen anytime soon.
Well, things started to settle down here in the new Underwood household so my fishing adventures continue...

The first of these trips took me out on the salt, to chase some slot reds on the flats. I was pretty excited because I just received a shipment of All Pro Rods! I really wanted to put these new rods to the test right away. Let me tell you this - They didn't disappoint! The Atlantis Series and EL Series Extra Light Graphite Rods are powerful, lightweight and sensitive are what all anglers are looking for in rods. If you get a chance check them out here, you won't be disappointed.

The reds were out in full force. At one point I had two different schools of reds 20+ on both side of the kayak. I was hooking up and casting another rod to try for a doubles. I was able to hook up twice this way!

The baits of choice were PowerTeam Lures 3.6 JP Hammer Shad and the Swinging Hammer in multiple colors. I prefer the Spicy Goby and the Smoking Minnow in the 3.6 Shad. I have been experimenting with different and even some of my own concoction. If you get this near a Red with a little Hog Tonic he will annihilate your bait! They aren't just for a bass anymore!

  This was only a 20" red but it had 12 spots on one side. Pretty cool looking red!

One of my "custom colored swinging hammers"!


With the red bite turning on as of late. I haven't had much interest in the Sweetwater. However, stay tuned for my next report where I get a couple of days to fish with my bass catching son, Wyatt.
