Experience it once and you’ll likely rank it right up there as one of the ultimate inshore bites: Stealth-stalking wolfpacks of redfish, rummaging amidst the shallow slop; slinging spinnerbaits like the Z-Man BullZEye right up in the marsh grass.
Swimming the lure back to the ‘yak, you feel its glitzy spinner blade drumbeat the water and sing through snarls of spartina. At once, everything stops. Lure goes dead. Breathing halts for a moment . . . And then, just before refilling your lungs, you feel the action accelerate toward terminal intensity. Water boils. Line jumps. Rod arcs and thumps ferociously as a bulldog redfish erupts in a shower of reeds and rivulets.
When all the elements align—incoming high tide, perfectly positioned kayak and a BullZeye Spinnerbait / DieZel Minnow™ combination—the skinny water inshore bite elicits a happy little buzz. When you’re catching angry reds on a sweet snag-resistant spinner, everything else just seems sublime.
