Yesterday was the windiest day I’ve tried to fish this year. It was wild and I couldn’t find anywhere to get out of it. Fought through it and caught just a few. Ended up with 1 trout and 4 catfish. All were caught on live shrimp either carolina rigged or on jig head.
The wind made it impossible to control a cork or artificials, so I just sank everything down.
On a side note, do you guys really catch fish with mud minnows? I had a few on the boat and, like every time I’ve fished with them, not even a bite. I know that fish will bite them, but I feel jinxed with them. For me they always fall behind live shrimp, dead shrimp, artificials, cut bait, live menhaden, empty hooks… Don’t know why I can’t catch fish with them. Maybe if I found a good flounder spot and put one on a bucktail jig?
