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.

Paddle alongside Z-Man® pro and superstar redfish angler, Dave Jaskiewicz, as he skims his kayak quietly into position. Witness how stealth spinnerbaits pitched in active littoral zones get it done for the perennial IFA Kayak-Redfish Tour winner. Between casts, the Charleston, SC angler shares a wealth of redfish tricks and a bit of his backstory as an ex-Jersey Shore policeman. Learn why he wisely traded his squad car for a sneak boat, swapping sidearm for a spinning rod. Good call, Mr. Jaskiewicz. Good call.
