Simple Trick To Attract More Redfish Strikes With Paddletails

But somehow Luke was outfishing me 3-0!
Has that ever happened to you?
I was getting frustrated that he was beating me so I checked out what he was doing…
There was one tiny little thing that he was doing that I wasn’t and when I tried it—Pa-POW!
Want to see what that little difference was?

The small difference between how Luke and I were fishing was how we were retrieving our lures.
Luke was retrieving his a little slower than I was, and at times even completely stopping reeling.
On the other hand, I was reeling consistently faster than he was.
So I slowed down my retrieve and added in some pauses, and that’s when the redfish hit.
Here’s why it worked:
It’s late winter, almost spring, so the water is cold and the fish are lazy.
They don’t want to be chasing fast-moving baitfish.
Also, they were holding tight to the bottom.
By reeling fast, my lure was higher in the water column.
But by reeling slower, and sometimes completely pausing it, it was able to get lower in the water column and bounce off of the bottom.
Here’s what not to do:
The difference was in how we were retrieving the lures, not the lures themselves.
If you’re not catching fish, don’t try to change the color of your lure, or change to a new lure altogether.
Instead, try changing your retrieve.
Slow it down, speed it up, or add in some twitches or pauses.
This will help you catch more fish.
If the fish aren’t biting, try to switch up your retrieve.
In this case, the water was relatively cold, so I slowed down my retrieve and added in some pauses, which helped me catch that nice red.
By doing this, instead of changing lures, you’re able to dial in on how the fish are feeding and spend more time with a bait in the water.
