With Tx five fish limit fishing birds can't be much fun unless there are 10 on the boat.

If you are more comfortable with soft plastics, by all means, throw the toughest one you have. Nothing worse than being on a good drift and having to spend time changing out a bait. When you are motoring around for another drift or headed to a different set of birds is the best time to change out a shredded bait.

I prefer a Weedless spoon. A Sprite (treble hook) can be a pain to get out of a trout that spun around in circles a few times on the way in. They ain't going to tear a spoon up and they will sure as shoot bite them.

Friends don't let friends chase the birds... ditto from above. If you do it, wait until December the fish will be a little bigger then. That said, the right flock might have redfish under them and that's different story. It's always fun, just not always the trout you want until later in the year.

Weedless spoon.

Or heavy heavy jig head and lil jon.... cast and never move it. Let it sit on bottom till rod jerks. Bigger fish will be cleaning up underneath the school.

If the fish is small enough, you want to swing the fish into the boat and hope the hook falls out of it's mouth when it hits the floor. That way you can get back out there asap.
Agreed. 1/4 jig anything when they are under birds and working hard single hook is better than 2 trebles with gulls diving on your junk. Can get that Sept limit in 15 mins that way ha.

Big jig seems like larger fish are on the fringes and deeper usually. Same with under the lights.

Over the years Ive had some success throwing topwaters on the fringe of working birds for bigger fish. Its a dicey thing keeping the birds off the bait though . Otherwise tail of choice on a 1/8 oz jig
