Best Fishing Tips Of The Week: Salt Strong Newsletter (August 11, 2019)
By: Joe Simonds on August 9, 2019
It’s newsletter time!
I hope you had a great week and got to get out there and catch some fish!
This past week my brother, Luke, and I got the opportunity to go to Louisiana and do some testing of our new lure, the Slam Shady.
How did it go, you ask?
Check out the picture below!
And speaking of the Slam Shady, big shoutout to Andy Benedict and his dad for catching the beast of a redfish pictured at the top of this post.
They were on their way out to fish the beach, but the water was too rough, so they decided to settle for pitching a Slam Shady at the jetty in the pass.
Looks like Plan B worked out just fine!
Alright, now onto the newsletter!
First, we have some news and updates, then the Insider tips, then the public tips, the Salt Strong Podcast, conservation tips, a special story about three slams in a row for our Strong Angler of the Week Award, and then a big welcome to our new Insider members for the month of August.

Salt Strong News & Updates
Here’s what we love to do: we love to teach people how to catch fish and make memories with their loved ones on the water.
Things like the Strike Score, the community, the Slam Shady, our Insider Reports and mastery courses help us do that.
You know what doesn’t? T-shirts.
So we’re selling off all of our apparel and not buying anymore.
On the flip side, split ring scissors do help you catch more fish and save fish lives by helping you change your treble hooks for single hooks.
And guess what? Split ring scissors are back in stock!
We keep selling out of them, but they’re back (so if you want a pair, click here to get them before they sell out again!).

Strong Angler Of The Week
Congrats to Teresa McCollough for the Strong Angler of the Week Award!
Teresa is an incredible angler and valuable member of our community.
She’s always posting great reports and helping out other anglers.
And not only that, but this past week she went out fishing three days in a row and guess what?
She caught three slams in a row!
She was throwing topwater in the early morning, white gulp pogy as the sun came up, and then live mullet in the evenings.
Teresa is a great example of what Salt Strong is all about, catching fish and helping others do the same!
P.S. We’re giving away two Chasebaits to a random Insider who posts or comments on a post in the Community, so make sure to get your comments and posts in by Monday at noon!
Welcome New Insider Members!
Here’s to recognizing and thanking our new Insider Members for the end of July and the beginning of August!
