How to Rig a Jigging Spoon

Low tides expose oyster reefs, which are full of life and usually full of reds.

Our friends at the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) recommend watching this video from FlatsWorthy on The Second Chain of Islands.

“Second Chain of Islands is a little more difficult to track because it is so fragmented from the passage of time, years of harvest, and the forces of nature. It’s the frontline barrier reef in this natural baffle system which limits the flow of water from San Antonio and Espiritu Santo Bays through Ayers, Mesquite, Carlos, and ultimately into Aransas Bay. This once wonderful baffle was a contiguous structure that attenuated the wave action and currents, settling it down before it got to Ayers and Mesquite and across the other baffle reefs.”
