Menhaden mimickers are the key


Flounder like tiny menhaden. If you are seeing a lot of flounder striking the surface and “rolling” as I like to call it but cannot get them to hit, switch to tiny shad imitations.

I caught around 85 of the 102 flounder I did in the four day Fall Flounder Run in 2011 using the 2.5-inch Sassy Shad by Mr. Twister on an 1/2 oz jighead and tipped with shrimp.

This is an absolutely killer lure and has been the ticket for me not only when the bite gets weird but in general.

    Chester, would you mind sharing some presentation tips for the bait rigged like this? Do you drag it, pop it up and down, swim it or some combination? Is there a particular method that seems to work best?

    Thanks!
