Here are some of my favorite lures to use around heavy structure:
Determine Current Flow
Knowing which way the current is flowing is a key factor in presenting your bait.
Predator fish point their nose facing into the current so when baitfish or shrimp are being carried through the current, they can easily pick them off.
It’s an easy meal!
Get Close To The Rocks
Try to fish as close as possible to the structure.
As the bait is carried over the rocks or oysters, the fish are waiting.
Predator fish are typically eating close to the rocks therefore you want to get your lure right there at the rocks too.
This is where people get nervous about getting snagged and losing tackle, but there are solutions to every problem!

A walk the dog retrieve on these lures will have you seeing action quickly from big redfish and trout.
