Florida Sportsman member: Top Contender Finally, around 3:30-4:00, the bite fired off and it was grouper after grouper from 12 to 38 pounds. We stuck it out until sundown, then headed inshore to 200′ to snapper fish. Overall it was a slow bite, but lots of big fish and the box got filled completely.
Florida Sportsman member: Splitshot Syndicate Decided to use artificials on the Northeast side of the lake to get out of the wind and maybe bend a rod. The bait was popping and there were fish around, but only managed one three pound bass on a New Penny Gulp Shrimp on a 1/8 oz jig in one foot of water.
This second-generation version is available in hard and soft bodies and still has the natural swimming action that attracts strikes. The colors have been tweaked, the body detail increased and the hooks and split rings are improved.
