The Flex Mullet “Terrebonne Special”. Just for you LSU fans! Get on those south Louisiana reds with this cajun pepper sauce! This color variation is killer in dirty water, no matter where you fish, or what fish you target - one of the best of all time for reds, specks, and flounder.
Today on Guide Brains, we chat with Capt. Cooper Hartmann of Git ‘R’ Bent Guide Service out of Seadrift, TX. Not only has Cooper been guiding for over a decade, he is also one heck of tournament! I’ve had the pleasure of duck hunting with Cooper during a visit to Bay Flats Lodge, also based out of Seadrift, and if you’re a duck hunter I highly recommend you check out Bay Flats and ask for Cooper to be your guide! Awesome service and awesome people.
IT’S LIKE A SOFT GOLD SPOON!!! The 3.5″ Flex Mullet “Dorado” is our OG, and is the ideal technical soft plastic when stalking the flats for reds, specks, flounder, or snook. The Flex Mullet “Gold Spoon” aka “Dorado” incorporates our flex-tail design in order to give hardcore anglers a technical advantage when in the marsh. The “Dorado” is packed with gold fleck which gives the underwater appearance of fish scales. It’s irresistible to predatory fish.
Today we’re breaking down endotherms vs. ectotherms, specifically as it pertains to fishes and how they deal with thermoregulation. The prefix endo- means ‘internal’ or ‘within’ and the prefix ecto- means ‘external’ or ‘outside’. The suffix therm- means ‘heat’. In fish speak, and biology speak in general, an endotherm is an organism that generates heat within its own body. In colloquial terms, we know these animals as warm-blooded. Ectotherms are just the opposite in that they cannot generate heat from within their own bodies (i.e., cold-blooded), and must rely on external heat sources for body temperature regulation (e.g., the sun).
The caudal fin is the culprit for every heart wrenching snapped line and straightened hook. The caudal fin is the reason we fishermen enjoy fishing – the thrill of the fight. We are addicted to the caudal fin. Dive in with us and explore species-specific evolutionary adaptations of the caudal fin, and how they are used.
