The Best Lure For Reef Fishing (1 Lure Caught TEN Species Of Fish!!)
On a fishing trip just last week, I discovered the best lure for reef fishing!
I was down in Marco Island with a few buddies and I only used ONE rig the entire time to catch TEN different species of fish.
We had a heck of a time fishing offshore reefs!
Check it all out right here!!
Best Lure For Reef Fishing [VIDEO]
- Lure: Power Prawn U.S.A.
- Jighead: Hoss Football – 3/4 oz
- Reel: Daiwa BG MQ – 3000
- Rod: Custom Prototype (7’6″ MH Fast)
- Mainline: J-Braid 8 Grand – 20 lb
- Leader: Ande Mono – 30 lb
This trip was flat-out memorable.
I managed to catch the biggest red grouper I ever have in my life and I hooked into TEN different species on inshore gear!
The lure I used was the Power Prawn U.S.A. rigged on a Hoss Football Jighead.
Out of all of us fishing the reef, one of my buddies was throwing jigs, two of them were throwing vertical jigs, and then I was throwing the Power Prawn U.S.A.
I think I might have had a slight advantage because of the lighter tackle I was using.
We pulled up to the offshore reef and began fishing in about 40 feet of water.
One of our other friends told us to head out here for red grouper and to use jigging spoons.
We started catching fish immediately and marking spots so we could re-drift them later on.
After I reeled a bunch of fish in, I noticed the tail of my Power Prawn U.S.A. lure was missing but I still decided to fish it.
And the fish went crazy for the Power Prawn U.S.A. Nub Rig!
Later in the trip, as one of my buddies was reeling up a keeper mangrove snapper, a giant red grouper came up and took a swipe at it!
The ticket ended up being just jigging and bouncing the Power Prawn U.S.A. over underwater wrecks and nearshore reefs.
To my surprise, I even ended up hooking into a very decent snook!!!
Tackle & Gear
I believe the lighter setup I was using had the advantage on this trip because it all came down to feel.
It was all about feeling the strike zone and maximizing my time in the strike zone.
The Power Prawn U.S.A. worked great but it could not have performed well without a weight heavy enough to get it into the strike zone and keep it in the strike zone.
Our new Hoss Football Jigheads were the perfect pairing to the Power Prawn U.S.A. on this trip.
This has proven to be the deadliest rig for nearshore or offshore reefs and even fishing inshore docks and bridges.
The rod I was using on this trip is actually a Custom Prototype from Mudhole that is a 7’6 Fast-Action rated 10-20lb braid.
I had the Daiwa BG MQ 3000 reel I was using spooled up with 20lb Daiwa J-Braid 8 Grand.
Even though this setup is commonly used for light inshore fishing, this outfit packed a punch.
This lighter setup helped me catch more fish and it had the backbone to reel in TEN different species of fish ranging in all sizes and strengths.
The Power Prawn U.S.A. has easily become my #1 most trusted artificial lure of all for both inshore and offshore fishing.
