This Is Why You Shouldn’t Use Popping Corks For Inshore Fishing
Popping corks can be awesome…
They are great in dirty water or coastal marsh areas where you need to bring a lot of attention to your lure to get a strike.
But in many scenarios, they are probably decreasing your chances of catching fish!
In this new video, you’ll learn why and when you shouldn’t use a popping cork.

Why You Shouldn’t Use Popping Corks [VIDEO]
To put it simply, you can’t control the depth of your lure while you’re retrieving your lure with a popping cork.
If you’re fishing a flat and you retrieve over a pothole or dropoff, the lure is not going to be close to the bottom (where you need to be).
By using a paddletail on a jighead, you can actually allow your lure to sink down into the strike zone.
Areas that I like to target fish are dropoffs because those depth changes are typically where fish are holding.
And the presentation of your lure is key in these areas!
I like to work the lure up or down the gradual slope for a reaction strike.
A popping cork just doesn’t allow you to work those different depths.
Also, popping corks aren’t going to excel in super clean water on a bright sunny day.
They make a lot of noise and splash to draw in fish but on these days, you need more of a subtle finesse presentation.
And if you’re sight casting to fish in shallow water, those fish are already on edge and more finicky because they aren’t as protected.
Have any questions about where you should and shouldn’t use a popping cork to catch inshore fish?
