How To Catch Fish At Low Tide & In Tough Conditions


You’re about to see something no fishing magazine, fishing show, or YouTuber will ever show you…

We’ve been getting some amazing feedback about our live podcasts.

They’re unscripted, unedited, uncut and just show real footage of us going out and trying to get on some fish.

There have been some adventures during these live episodes, like the time we lost our $4,500 camera and microphones, and some nice fish caught, like the redfish pictured below.

But the thing about fishing is that you’re not going to catch a lot of fish every time.

This episode is going to show you one of those days.

The day started off great, with Luke catching a redfish before we even started officially filming, but after that, it was a grind.

In this episode, you’ll learn what we did right, what we did wrong, what we should have done differently, and how to make the most of tough days like this.

I definitely recommend watching the video for this one, but you can also listen to the audio by clicking the play button below the video, or on iTunes, Stitcher, or Spotify.

The jig head Luke was using this trip was the Z-Man Weedless jig head.

It’s best for fishing under docks and where there’s a lot of structure, but not as good when fishing in open water.

That’s fishing for you…

Some days it’s great, some days it’s not… but it’s always great to be out on the water!

If you find yourself in a day like this, switch it up.

We’ve been doing well with fishing docks recently and since fishing these dropoffs clearly wasn’t working, we should’ve switched to fishing docks a little quicker.

Thankfully we did hit some docks towards the end and Luke was able to save the trip with a decent red.

Have any questions about this trip?

Or have any suggestions for people who we should go out and fish with for a live episode?

Still my favorite thing. Thanks for putting it out and listening to what people enjoy.

Great video guys! Felt like I was on the boat but on days like that we call it the struggle bus! That slam shady is an awesome bait but the owner hooks are a challenge. Great sturdy hook but with large fish the screw in portion is a bit of a pain. Would almost rather have a barbed prong.
Keep up the great work!

Should have slowed down and used a gulp jerk shad or shrimp.

It seemed you had a pretty quick retrieve given the cold conditions, was that your typical speed or were you trying to cover water. Making me think I am retrieving too slow in cold conditions?
