The Best Retrieves
First, cast the lure out and let it fall to the bottom, and leave it there.
Typically in the spring and fall, I’ll make use of the twitch-twitch-pause retrieve or a constant hop and retrieve.
But when the water heats up in the summertime and the fish slow down, so should your retrieve.
Slow it down and basically just crawl the lure along the bottom.
These fish don’t want to chase down bait as their metabolism slows in the summer.
Top Lure Options
Downsize your lures!
By that I mean use smaller lures rather than the 4 or 5-inch options.
Lures that are 3.5 inches and below are ideal for summertime fishing.
Hook choice depends on the depth you are fishing.

Other options I rely on in the summer are lures with a straight tail like any of our jerk shads.
Our jerk shads are 5 inches, however, I will cut them down to 4 inches if I feel that I’m not getting many bites.
Without the tail of paddletail lures, this setup will stay down on the bottom and avoid spooking off sensitive fish.
Also, you can fish tight to docks and cast under mangroves with this setup.
