I then moved to deeper water over grass and bumped the Grass Walker up from the bottom. Sometimes I would keep it walking at the surface, sometimes slight bumps from the bottom to the top covering all levels of water. It wasn't until I fished the shallow water in a different place did I catch a fish, Redfish under slot.
This lure did just fine, problem was there were no predator fish. No Reds in the shallow marsh, no trout in the deeper water. Mullet were all round me but were just mingling on the top with no fear of getting eaten from below.
I was worried that when I buried the hook point in the belly slit that hooking a fish would be more difficult, but the one bite I had was hooked this way.
Got me thinking about other places to use this lure. Swan Lake in Rockport comes to mind with all that grass. On the west end of Swan Lake are taller stalks of grass with room to pull this lure through as there is no way any of my other lures would work in Swan Lake grass.
I will have one rod rigged with this lure along with my other two rigs.
Thank you Tobin.
