Want to catch more redfish, flounder, trout, and snook this fall?
These fish are hungry and aggressive this time of year and although they’ll hit a variety of lures, there’s one option that stands above the rest.
Since they’re looking for big baitfish, it mimics those, plus it’s versatile.
If the weather is warm, you can fish it shallow, and if the weather is cool, you can fish it deep.
Check out the video below to see what the best fall fishing lure is and how to catch fish with it.
P.S. This is the go-to lure for all the Salt Strong fishing coaches now and we’ve all been having great days on the water with it!
#1 Lure For Fall Fishing [VIDEO]
Here are four reasons why a big paddletail is the best lure to catch inshore fish this fall:
Reason #1: Baitfish are biggest in fall
You want to match the hatch with your lures and since baitfish will be biggest in the fall, you want to use a bigger lure.
Reason #2: Predator fish are keyed in on baitfish
There are lots of baitfish in the inshore waters this time of year so that’s what predators are looking for.
This makes a paddletail, which imitates a baitfish, a much better option than a crab or shrimp lure.
Reason #3: Hunting down one meal is easier than hunting down several meals
Fish want to conserve energy and they’d rather have one big meal that gives them a lot of calories than have to expend a lot of energy chasing down dozens of small meals.
Reason #4: Paddletails are versatile
You can have big temperature swings in the fall, which can change where you’ll find fish.
If a cold front just came in, fish will be in deeper water, so you’ll want to rig a paddletail on a jig head and bounce it along the bottom.
If there’s been several warm days in a row, fish will be in the shallows, so it’ll be best to rig it on a weighted swimbait hook and fish shallow.
If you want to get tight lines this fall, tie on a big paddletail and hold on.
Fish are keyed in on big baitfish right now, so these lures are working really well.
