    Bucktail works good. Red/White or Chartreuse/white.

    Never had good luck with buck tails for anything other then Bonita or mackerel. Guess they could be used for bottom fish but to me kind of expensive. I have found scampi to be more productive then shrimpflys anyway. Flys seem to work better up north or at least for me they have.
