The 90/10 Rule states that 90% of the feeding fish will be in 10% of the water.

The majority of the fish I caught on this trip was through sight casting.

Water clarity was just clean enough to where I could make the outline of a fish’s shadow in the water.

The key here was stealth.

If I was fishing a wind-protected shoreline, the fish are on high alert because everything around them is much quieter.

Keep your trolling motor at a slow steady pace and avoid any sudden bursts or movement.

I started out trying different retrieves but a slower retrieve ended up working best.

The twitch-twitch-pause method with a slightly longer pause was the ticket.

All the fish caught on this trip were concentrated in a pretty small area.

Great video, some nice Reds, and good tips. What brand of boat are you fishing out of? Does it come totally rigged or customizable? Could two fish out of it? Thanks again for the video.
