CCAguns,I most definitely gave H and H weedless(???)gold spoons a valiant effort yesterday and really did not like the light weight and action compared to what the drumbeater gave me.Funny thing is I tossed and tossed a 1/2 oz gold spoon,did not feel that comfortable with it,guess I am used to a tad heavier lure like either lead jig head mated to soft plastic like Berkley Gulp,etc or the 1/4 oz drumbeater and almost immediately after switching rods to the baitcaster with drumbeater on it,nabbed the fine bronze specimen I took pic of prior to quick release.I won't give up on gold spoon just might get tad heavier model or keep trying the 1/2oz to get a good feel for it.I kinda know the NShore Marsh much better then the Delacroix Marsh and know exactly where the grass lines end on NShore and the absolute key to drumbeater success is tossing dat lure just parallel to edge of grassbeds and ripping it either alongside or right through and worked correctly,they mow through grass,ya just have to initiate the retrieve just as lure touching down and I keep rod tip very high about at 11:00 position.That was the only lure that worked,at least for me.I am sure de Wiz knows the Delacroix Marsh much better than me and a return trip,hopefully with Southfork,might be medicine de doc orders!!!I went back to exact series of ponds that I fished Friday and nabbed fine azz red,probably 18 inches,but he had other intentions and quickly spit de extremely sharp hook!!!
