Saltwater fish are funny. Can't get them to hit a crankbait that looks JUST LIKE a little baitfish, but they'll hit a soda straw on a treble hook all day long.

I went to Bass Pro here in Memphis this afternoon looking for one of the bubble rigs, and they did not have any. The closest thing was a clip-on transparent bobber that you could put water in. It wouldn't work for this, unfortunately.

Should I buy them on the internet, or is it no big deal to find them for sale down there?

You won't have any problem finding them around at the beach tackle shops. Also Walmart in Gulf Shores has them too. When I was in Gulf Shores the first week of June a man fishing a bubble rig right beside me out fished me big time. I had the McDonald's straw and treble hook behind my bubble but he had a small Clark single hook spoon on his. He was catching alot more fish than us throwing the straw. I went to Walmart in Gulf Shores and bought some of those spoons and started catching more fish.

Wow, learn something new everyday. I wonder what all you could win off your buddies telling them "I bet I can catch a fish with a McDonalds straw lol. Good info and pic Kirk, thanks for sharing.

sweet, I won't bother wasting anymore time trying to pull together the right tackle in Memphis then.

Thanks for the information.

As an aside - I bought a package of those Berkley "crab" lures...they basically look like little crabs about 1.5 inches across, and are predominantly white/grey.

Is that worth using you think, or should I stick to the bubble rig the whole time?

Sorry about all the noobie questions, but I don't know diddly squat about surf fishing.
