Shrimp and popping cork is a great way to fish eight or nine months out of the year on windy days (fall, winter and spring)! This style of fishing is used by only a few guides; it seems there is a contingent that has become opposed to teaching their customers how to cast, work the bait and set the hook. Not me! Let me have a day of my clients casting over a day of anchoring up and casting for them! I have spent a lot of time working with the young and old alike. For example, the 70 year old Yeager's (yes, the nephew of Chuck Yeager and also a war fighter pilot) were able to catch a whole mess of fish during an afternoon half day trip this spring. I like my customers to fish. This is a great style of fishing, even for children! There are times when the anchor-up guys catch more redfish, however they haven't let their customers touch a rod other than to hand them the rod and reel when the fish is on. Now don't get me wrong, there are days when that is productive — and I'm forced into that type of routine also, however the good catch on those days are limits of reds and a couple of drum maybe. Shrimp-and-popping-cork good days are limits of reds, near limits of trout with maybe a huge trout released, a couple of drum and a ton of fish in between!
