This page will show you how to catch the most fish possible while using your Alabama Leprechaun lures.
The great thing about soft plastic jerk baits is that they are so versatile and can be effectively used in so many different applications making them a lure type that can catch fish in pretty much all regions throughout the year.
But the bad thing about soft plastics is that they won’t work well at all if they aren’t rigged properly or if they aren’t retrieved in a way that generates strikes.

After testing a lot of weighted hooks over the years, my absolute favorite for the Alabama Leprechaun lures is the 3/0 weighted TwistLock hook made by Owner because its unique centering pin makes rigging very easy and it is the perfect size for this lure.
Note: I like the one with the 1/16th oz weight best.
I highly recommend 7’6″ Fast Action blanks with Medium Heavy power (Medium for some brands like TFO).

I highly recommend using 10 lb braid for maximizing your results when using the Alabama Leprechaun so that you can maximize your casting distance and feel of taps vs. thumps.

In my opinion, the reel is not nearly as important as the rod and the line. I recommend 2000 to 3000 sized reels for inshore fishing with the Alabama Leprechaun lures because they hold plenty of line and have more than enough drag strength while they weigh much less than the larger reels.
