On the Scoreboard

I went to the oceanfront fishing today and picked up my first schoolies of the spring season.  These were small fish in the 10-18 inch range, typical of what has been caught down there in the last week.  I caught 7 fish today and interestingly I got my first  fish of the new season (see photo at left) on a shrimp fly teaser.  I was using a double teaser rig with shrimp fly teasers (see photo at right) with a Cocahoe on a jighead for my jig.  Of the seven fish I landed today, 4 took the teaser and 3 fish took the Cocahoe.  Teasers are very effective at this time of year and should be part of your spring arsenal.
