Capt. Scott Goodwin explains his obsession with the Gulp! Mantis Shrimp soft plastic for his inshore fishing needs in the Indian River Lagoon in the Central Florida area.
He uses it for redfish, snook, spotted seatrout, tarpon, black drum, and more.
“The combination of the Gulp! Mantis Shrimp’s look and smell with the Mustad Impact Spring jighead is the perfect match for what I’m doing inshore in my home waters,” says Capt. Scott. “I can run out for a quick trip in the morning or evening and never have to worry about getting bait or keeping it cold. The Gulp! is always ready and very effective for me. It is almost the only thing I throw which I understand is kind of a self-fulfilling prophecy but I’m not fixing it until it’s broken.”
