THE STORY: Resaca is the name given to oxbow lakes of an ancient river, and the namesake for our company, the Rio Grande. Seasonal flooding caused by far upstream snowmelt carves new river channels into the Rio Grande Valley landscape. When the water retreats from the floodplain, the depressional features formed by sediment erosion are left inundated. They are a vital part of this rugged and arid South Texas landscape - save the sacas!
THE DESIGN: We packed the Flex Mullet "Resaca" full of gold flake. We then hand dipped the tail in highlighter orange dye to give it a pop of extra color. Something for the fish to key in on. This color combo is great for dirtier water or overcast days, but it's been known to shine in clearer waters as well. Rig it with a standard jighead and keep it shallow and close to structure, whether that be oysters or marsh edges. You can also rig it weedless and work it closer to the surface over grass or oysters.
