    But spotties ain't one.

    Float tubed a South Bay spot today. Weather was greatish. A couple hours of wind and chop mid day but it calmed down.
    Trying to improve the bite/hookup ratio with the ScorcherZ.
    Two out of the last three trips the spotty bite turned on for an hour or so, ending as the outgoing tide was slowing.
    That magic window didn't open today. But kept moving and casting, putting baits in front of as many fish as possible.
    Only got seven fish...per hour.
    Ended w fifty bass and one bonefish.
    Scott also got a bonefish and piles of spotties.

    Had 3 rods rigged w 3 different colored ScorcherZ. One was softer plastic and didn't make it through the day.

    The leadheads had each been used at least once before and the black nickel plating is showing oxidation so they will go in the recycle bin.

    Rob has the magic touch on those tube jigs. I spent the first 2 or 3 hours glory fishing and exploring the landscape. When I finally settled into the "dink races" he was only 10 or 15 fish ahead of me, and I thought I could catch him. 4.5 hours later, he had 50 and I had 25.
