I fished numerous areas for them, and applied a ridiculous amount of effort. I found clean water, baitfish and the correct water temperature, not a hit. Not even a rumor of a New Jersey red drum or speckled trout being caught, to spite prime conditions this past week. The only way I avoid getting skunked, is by cherry picking striped bass on the way home. Worst October for Jersey reds and speckled trout in a lifetime, so far.
