How To Catch Schooling Redfish [VIDEO]
This tip is piggybacking off of Fishing Coach Pat Ogletree’s tip from a couple of weeks ago.
I entered into a fishing tournament not too long ago and we were out fishing a school of redfish we came across but eventually lost it after reeling in a few fish from the school.
While I was out on the water, I remembered the tip Pat put out which was all about the best search baits for schooling redfish.
In Pat’s video, he suggests using the Strike King KVD Wake Bait to search for that school of redfish you lost sight of.
Once we lost sight of the fish, I tied on the KVD Wake Bait and found the redfish in such a short amount of time.
Fishing A School Of Redfish
One of the hardest but most important things to do after hooking into a redfish is to pay attention to where the school goes.
This is easier if you’re out there fishing with a buddy.
But if you are out there by yourself, try to keep an idea of the general direction that school swims in.
The sound, rattle, and erratic motion of the Wake Bait will call nearby redfish schools in to check it out and strike.
Strike King KVD Wake Bait
The shallow-running lipped-style bait covers LOTS of water and does it FAST.
Wake Baits are designed to run just below the water’s surface and give off a wake behind it.
The objective is for it to appear like a wounded baitfish that a predator perceives as an easy meal.
Coach Pat Ogletree refers to these as the “paddletail lures of topwater lures”.
You retrieve the Wake Bait just as you would any type of paddletail or swimbait lure.
The body of the Wake Bait is designed to wobble back and forth creating erratic action to draw fish in.
You do not have to walk the dog with this lure, a straight retrieve is all you need.
The Wake Bait has also become my go-to tournament lure.
It’s helped me catch tournament-winning fish in a variety of situations and conditions.
Even we coaches take tips from each other!!!
Don’t ever stop learning and growing your fishing knowledge no matter your experience or skill levels.
If you don’t have a Wake Bait yet, head over to the shop and get one in time for this Fall!!
