The Best Soft Plastic Lure For Summer Trout [VIDEO]
My plan for summer trips usually begins very early in the morning fishing some topwater lures or subsurface plugs through the morning as the sun rises.
Then as the tide changes, the wind picks up, and the sun hits its height, I’ll move into more protected areas around creek mouths.
Generally, this is the trend during this time of the year.
There are few better lures than the Slam Shady 2.0 paddletail.
Once I put the lure on the end of my line, the trout couldn’t get enough of it!
On this particular trip, I noticed most of the strikes I was getting came right along the grass line.
The fish were holding right along the grass line to quickly jump out and crush bait as it passes by.
It is critical to look for areas with these features that give both predatory fish and baitfish a place to stage.
SLAM SHADY STRIKES AGAIN!!!
Don’t forget the magic that a Slam Shady 2.0 paddletail can create!
Flooded structure near grass and along protected shorelines were the ticket on this late summer trip.

Great lessons Richard. I completely agree. If the only lures I take with me are the Slam Shady 2.0 in all 3 colors I will usually have a successful day. Of course Dr. Juice is par the course. As we moved into summer fishing I have moved up to the larger Slam Shady, but using the same color scheme.
Salt Strong! Thomas
Appreciate it Thomas, it’s a tried and true tactic for sure!
Great info Richard. Thanks for taking us back to where it all started! Quick question- what retrieve were you using?
No problem Richard! So I was just using a simple straight reel retrieve after letting th lure sink for a few seconds.
Curious as to why you don’t like spot lock? I am looking at a trolling motor and trying to figure out if spot lock is worth the extra $500.
So I don’t like spot lock for fishing in certain scenarios, due to it being load and spooking fish, but it is very helpful at times as well. I rather use the heading lock witch is a azimuth that the motor keeps on and it typically is much quieter and allows your boat to stay straight.
It’s good for very deep water scenarios though like if you were fishing docks or jetties with a lot of current.
I do like the 2.0 slam shady it’s great on a spinnerbait then I dye the tail chartruese with spike it glo makes it more visible in murky water here in Jax fl but I also like the live target slow roll shiner in either white or black and green the realism is uncanny and I like the fact that they have three small holes on top and underneath for hook placement and the last hole underneath is a perfect place to add a rattle to it making it more noticed caught tons of fish on this lure and it also takes well to spike it glo dye thanks for the opinion and all you do😉
I’ve had great luck with rattles as well in our murky waters, thanks Steven!
Solid info on those trout brotha! Way to crush em in this heat! Trout bite has been tough lately! Way to work em!
Thanks man, when the tide and conditions line up you gotta go!
Great, info. Nice video. Thank you, SS
Good, concise information. I would enjoy reading more on how to rig these baits for different presentation.
Thanks Scott, and sure thing, I typically use a Hoss helix hook or a trout eye jig. However I use them both in specific situations.
