got there about 1pm,caught some mullet, & set 1 rod out w/live bait while I threw arties w/ another,parked on Buzz's sandbar & set stake out pole thru scupper hole on my newly rigged - for- fishing yak. It's 1st trip on flat water-been used mostly for yakking out shark baits. Anyway, I was throwing a Gulp jerk bait tandem rigged w/ a Strike King 3X floating jerk minnow on the end of the leader.the 3x got slammed on the 1st cast,I waited, then nothing., Soon, the Gulp got hit,waited, then nada.,but tore the hook out of the head end .I started working the rod w/ mullet & picked up 2 flatties before Buzz arrived. THe wind died & the skeeters came out in force,so I sprayed myself w/ Cutters Advanced & never got another bite! So here's my theory: fish can detect sunscreen & skeeter dope & don't like the taste anymore than we do!BTW: Buzz caught 4 & didn't get there 'til almost 4pm.you've all seen lots of pics of flatties, so I thought I'd post pics of my bananna boat.
