I caught a trout using this lure in heavy grass a few months ago fishing on a guided trip with Capt. Craig Spitznogle of Florida Flats Charter. It worked for me.

Excellent lure and ‘trick’ for heavy grass! Other setups that have worked well for me in the past have been Johnson’s Weedless Minnow spoons, with or without some kind of ‘tail’ added, weedless Mission Fishin jig heads, the lightest you can get away with, so that they don’t quickly dive-bomb down into the grass, and Shallow DOA Baitbuster minnows. The DOA’s sink horizontally on the drop, and the hook rides up very well. Sometimes I have added mono weedguards stuck into the top side of the Baitbusters, in a ‘V’ just in front of the hook. ( 30 lb. works well.) Tight lines! 👍 Tupperware Navy Strong!

Great stuff CA as usual ! I learn so much from all of you at Salt Strong !


Captain Richard you are the best fishing coach out there. More and more it seems northern fishing is just like same as southern intercoast fishing with artificial baits.

Thanks CA!

CA, I noticed how clear the water is, can you give any recommendations on color of plastics when fishing murky waters or not so clear waters?
