Best Lure For BIG Flounder? (THIS beat GULP! in recent test)

What is the BEST lure for BIG flounder???

Our fishing team was all having a conversation about our personal best flounders and what’s crazy is that we all used the same lure to catch them.

So we started doing some research and discovered that many others had caught some absolute doormats using this lure.

Listen in as we share what lure it is, how to best rig it, how to best retrieve it, and more.

Great fish talk guys. I haven’t used jerk shads much but after this video I plan to rig one up for every trip. You’ve convinced me on the large flounder catches. Thanks for a great tutorial. Salt Strong’s the Best.

Love a John Skinner style double rig for inshore casting. Smaller bucktail with a Alabama leprechaun and then about 12-18″ higher I put another jerk shad or power prawn on a bait holder hook. Smother it all in Dr Juice! Cast out and do a slow steady rapid twitching retrieve similar to Skinners rapid jigging technique. Looks like a very odd setup but it works great for skinny and deeper areas.

Yes, I prefer jerk shad over paddle tail for flounder fishing ( my favorite target) when rigged with a weighted, weedless hook. Weedless or more specifically, less snaggy in hard rocky places. Good success with Alabama Leprechaun and slam shady but I also like Gulp 7” jerk shad in Pink Shine, Pearl and Glow colors. I wish salt strong tackle offered a 7” version of the jerk shad.

No sir I totally disagree my favorite flounder and redfish bait for that matter is a zman spinnerbait tipped with a paddletail grub I personally like gulp paddletails because of the smell but I do often use a 2.0 in the fred or gold digger but I usually Luke I charteuese tail and gold Colorado blade I use alot of scent and if not using a gulp then I use procure that has been mixed with Dr juice slam scent and also I tip all my jigs and spinnerbaits with a piece of fishbites in shrimp scent we here in northeast fl mostly fish in murky muddy water where as you guys in central or south fl fish mostly clear well I have found jerkshads only seem to work well here in early spring or winter when the water is more clearer that’s probably why they work so well in your area because of the action they are more of a sight bait as to the spinnerbait yes they do give off alot of flash but I believe in our murky water the vibration is what really attracts them a spinnerbait because of the flash and vibration probably would not work so well in your area it would probably spook the fish more then attract them so you see that’s why alot of times when you guys say it’s the best this or that that I usually disagree different water clarity and conditions require different baits and tactics to better catch them your lures do work but not all the time are they as good as what I have found in my 20 plus years of fishing inshore saltwater I use and you know buy your lures often but your lures are not the only ones I use in fact for spinnerbaits I remember when saltstrong had a podcast with a certain capt that does charters out of south Carolina that specifically fishes with spinnerbaits and I knowing how south Carolinas waters are murky in the summer like ours is here in northeast fl know that he knows what he is talking about heck ask Matt Lanier one of your coaches he will tell you how food they are im just saying what works for some in some areas doesn’t mean it will work that great in other areas because I know from like I said 20plus years of fishing the inshore saltwater thanks for the info and all you do😉👍
