My first years back in Texas, I caught more fish on a white/pink tail DOA shrimp than anything else. But recently, I haven't had a hit on one. I bought a couple of VuDu shrimp lures, which looked super, but never caught anything on one, and then, they "reacted" with my other plastics, and they melted in my box.
A few days back, someone was raving about the TKO Shrimp lures. I haven't tried them. Neumie has always sworn by the DOA shrimp lures. I'm beginning to believe the folks that say "the season following a hurricane is not normal".
Last Sunday, after not getting a bite in Lighthouse Lakes, the wind got up and I paddled back across the Shrimpboat Channel, and guys were catching slot+ size Reds and some Big Uglys off the beach , on clams(mussels) they had dug out of the mud! I tried that, but couldn't get my casts out into the channel. Oh, well.
Catch 'em up! TexasJim
