    “Enemy of the State” – great reference. Wouldn’t it have been great to have that intel on raids in ’03?
    How do I tell the difference between shallow (where I’m seeing the bottom from the satellite) and dirty?
    If I’m using the “light water, light (chartreuse?) bait; dark water dark (purple?) bait” rule. How do I apply that to the imagery? How Do I know whether the water is dark or light by looking at it when I’m fishing?

    I really love your comments because I can tell how passionate you are about this!

    Plus, you’re thinking.

    But look, I gotta tell ya something: a lot of what you’re asking is already explained in lessons following this one.

    Please take the time to write down your questions and see how they’re answered as you complete the course, then take whatever is left and throw ’em at me.

    I explain more in the videos about Deep Holes and before this in Flats.

    As for lure color, it’s painfully simple: use chartreuse when they’re biting chartreuse and not biting purple. Use purple when they’re not biting chartreuse.

    It literally takes seconds to swap out colors on a jighead. Experimentation is very easy.

    Do u have a history record of cold fronts since u refer to them in your recordings. If so how can I get same?

  • Devin says:

    I do not, but I do have access to the National Data Buoy Center (and you do, too) so I can look up what weather happened for that particular day.

  • Devin says:

    I detail how to use NDBC to look up the conditions for a particular day in a particular area in this part of Inshore Fishing 101:
