How To Use The MirrOlure Lil John Twitchbait (For Big Trout & Redfish)
Have you used the MirrOlure Lil John yet?
This twitchbait is versatile, catches tons of fish, and casts great into the wind.
But the biggest mistake people make with this lure is that they don’t retrieve it the right way.
That causes them to not catch fish and (incorrectly) think that the lure doesn’t work.
So in this video, you’ll learn how to rig and retrieve the MirrOlure Lil John.

The biggest mistake you can make with this lure is to think that a straight retrieve is going to get strikes.
YOU create the action in a twitchbait, and this lure is no different.
Quick, jerky movements are a must to entice fish to follow and attack.
Another mistake is not working this lure fast enough!
How To Use The Lil John
Here’s the easiest way to create an erratic, darting motion:
Cast out and let sink.
Make sure you don’t have any slack in your line.
Keep your rod tip down almost parallel to the water.
Twitch, drop, twitch, twitch, twitch, drop.
Be sure you are reeling in slack while working the bait to ensure you can feel the strike.
What You Need To Know
The MirrOlure Lil John Twitchbait is very dense and can cast a mile even in the wind.
Because of its density, I’d recommend not rigging this lure weedless as it may be tougher to set the hook.
The Lil John is also super durable and stays in place on the hook so you won’t have to constantly be adjusting it.

- 1/16 oz for very shallow water
The MirrOlure Lil John Twitchbait may soon be your favorite lure when you see the size of the fish you’re catching with it.
