Looking to do some Speck fishing 12/18-12/22 at Oak Island. Planning on using MirrOLures. I've never fished for Specks, but assuming I should go to the west end of the Island and in the marsh areas of the Intercoastal?? Would love some guidance.

I was talking to a guy who fishes in NC on the sound side, and he was telling about how they rig gulps for Specks. He said instead of using a jig head; use a DOA weighted hook. I've been looking for a set-up like that on web and can't find it. Any help?

Reeds???... you mean Spartina and Juncus. That would be a little to shallow. Specks don't root for food like drum do. That is why there head/mouth is designed differently. As to imparting an action, the colder the water the less action you impart.

He may be using DOA pinch weights. They have "legs" that wrap around the hook shank. You can cut them to make a lighter weight for shallower water or a quieter landing. They also come in different colors.
