Out of the package, Corky’s are typically straight and streamlined.
You want to bend the nose and tail of the lure down as far as you possibly can.
This allows the lure to sit in the water column better and it keeps the head down to improve its presentation.
There are lots of ways to retrieve a Corky and ultimately, there is no wrong way to swim these lures.
Compare throwing a Corky to throwing a small topwater lure.
Throw the lure out and let it sink for a few seconds.
Sink rates depend on the salinity of the water you are fishing in but usually, with this lure, it is a foot for every 1-1.5 seconds.
After allowing it to sink, implement a simple walk-the-dog retrieve technique.
The biggest mistake people make with retrieving Corky’s is they aren’t constantly reeling in the lure.
Your reel should always be moving as you retrieve the lure back to you.
If you don’t reel in as you work the Corky, the line can get wrapped up around the tip of your rod and cause issues.
Moreover, you can mix in slight pauses and twitches here and there as you reel in the lure.
A lot of times on the pause and fall, fish will strike your lure on the fall.
Another method for retrieving this lure is letting it pause and fall, but instead of continuing the retrieve as normal, you crank the reel fast.
Oftentimes, a fish will see the lure falling and then quickly dart off which can trigger a reaction strike.
Corky lures are versatile and in spite of popular opinion, they can be used any time of the day on any day.
There is always an opportunity to mess around with your Corky presentation and change things up every now and then to create many presentations with the same lure.
You can fish this type of lure in a plethora of ways in any scenario.
This further solidifies the Corky as a versatile and unique lure in your arsenal.
