If The Speckled Trout Aren’t Biting, Try This Sneaky Trick
By: Joe Simonds on July 16, 2019
Topwater lures are for working across the surface…
Soft plastics are for bouncing off the bottom…
And suspending twitchbaits are for working just below the surface…
But sometimes, using a lure the way it’s intended to be used just isn’t bringing fish in the boat.
So what do you do?
You switch it up!
Watch the video below to see how Capt. Leiza Fitgerald saw how the baitfish were behaving and changed the way she was retrieving her lure to catch more fish.
Sneaky Trick For Speckled Trout [VIDEO]
Be The Bait To Catch The Fish
Imagine you’re a trout for a second…
You’ve been eating glass minnows in the bottom of the water column all morning.
Then you see this glass minnow-looking thing twitch through the water over your head in the top of the water column.
Are you going to eat it?
Well, considering you’ve been eating in the bottom of the water column all day, and there’s something slightly off about the thing twitching above, you probably won’t.
But then a glass minnow-looking thing floats along with the current in the bottom of the water column right next to all the other glass minnows you’ve been eating.
You see a twitch, you think it’s probably injured and BOOM!
You smash it.
Ok, stop imagining you’re the trout now, you don’t want to imagine hooks in your mouth.
But in all seriousness, do you see how important it is to make your lure look like the bait the fish are already eating?
If you do that, then, like Leiza in the video, you can get fish to bite when they seem to just not be interested.
Whenever you’re out on the water, think about what the fish are looking for.
That will help you catch more fish (even when other people aren’t).

And women often like to be taught by women.
So we went out and partnered with Capt. Leiza to help teach women how to catch more fish.
