How To Find & Catch Fish In The Dirtiest Water
What should you do to catch fish in the DIRTIEST water???
Substantial tidal flow and an increase in heavier wind are super common for this time of the year.
That’s why we tend to see dirtier, murky water in the fall.

Fish feed just a little bit differently in dirty water.
Visibility is lower in dirty water so the fish have a much tougher time seeing your bait.
You’ve got to do things to make your presentation stand out and be noticeable.
Another thing to note is having a strong water presence because those fish are relying heavily on their lateral lines to locate meals.
The lateral line runs across a fish’s body and is used to help feel vibrations in the water around them.
The last factor in the mix is the scent.
These fish will also rely on their olfactory senses to detect nearby meals.
More often than not, the fish will use their nose to find the bait in dirty water and pick up on scents.
I was out on a recent trip with an Insider Member in new waters and the water clarity was extremely low.
The water was cloudy, dark, and stained like it had been churned up from the bottom.
Strike King Redfish Magic
While on the water, I made the switch to the Strike King Redfish Magic spinnerbait.
Lures with a spinnerbait like the Redfish Magic absolutely shine in dirty water situations.
The Colorado blade on the spinnerbait creates a flash letting fish easily find and strike it.
Moreover, these spinnerbaits give off lots of vibration and displace water.
The vibrations get picked up by the lateral lines of fish to alert them of a meal.
I personally have my Strike King Redfish Magic spinnerbait rigged with our Gold Digger Jerk Shad which is one of the best lure colors for fishing dirty water.
Dark colors in darker water are the way to go.
The last step is to of course apply some Dr. Juice Saltwater Slam Scent to this rig and you’re ready to hit the water.
On my trip just last week, I actually had a 5-inch Gulp! jerk shad on which fulfilled adding more scent.
You can use any type of Gulp! lure with the spinnerbait because that is where the action lies, not in the lure.
Gulp! is a great option for the additional scent it provides in dirty water.
Fishing in cloudy or dirty water is just an obstacle and with the right gear, you can easily overcome it and reel in some fish.
Remain patient and use every little thing to your advantage.
Remember to capitalize on scent, and water displacement, and use darker colors in dirty water!!
