Kyle35,Gonna toss out name of perhaps best Causeway fisherman there ever was,no offense to anyone who thinks they are close to this gent,but the name William Hungerford may or may not ring a bell but be willing to bet a few folks on dis site have either heard of him or possibly met him(passed away quite a few years ago).He more than likely still holds a few hybrid striper records and he showed me some of his tactics,basically schooled me a few times,but I learned a tremendous amount from him.His absolute favorite lure was Tsunamai swimbaits,not sure if he had a particular favorite,but he annihilated huge specks out at the Causeway on extremely regular basis and my older son and I and a handful of folks were the extremely lucky beneficiaries of some of his wisdom and tactics.I tried em but NEVER had near the success he had and buddies of mine use em in tandem to MAUL specks in St.Bernard Marsh.Good luck,I happen to be headed to Delacroix this Friday,gonna do my best and have tons of fine swimbaits,NONE of which can be bought locally,and they work very well,though a few folks tried a few had miserable results,perhaps their tactics and mine are slightly different,and dats de nature of fishing.AJfishes routinely MAULS big ole specks on antique beetles!!!Have a great evening,gonna walk our beloved chocolate Lab,Molly,and she alerted us today to the upcoming Blue Angels,her hearing is incredible-think she heard em from a mile away!!!Destroy some specks!!!
