The Secret Bait To Catch BIG Redfish And Trout
We discovered the SECRET bait to catch BIG redfish!!
Last week, Luke and I had the chance to stay at Bay Flats Lodge in Texas and fish with a bunch of other Captains and fishermen.
While we were there, we got introduced to an amazing live bait to use for catching redfish.
They’re called Piggy Perch or Pigfish…take a look!

Capt. TJ from Bay Flats Lodge has been fishing with Pigfish (Piggy Perch) for years and he showed us that this is not your average run-of-the-mill live bait fishing.
There is a real strategy to working these live baits to trigger strikes.
There are a couple of different sizes of Pigfish.
The ideal size is somewhere between 3-4 inches.
To rig these fish, have the tail pointing away from you and slide the hook point near the rear of the fish out through the bottom.
Capt. TJ uses 5/0 Kahle Hooks when fishing with Pigfish.
If the Pigfish are on the smaller side, you can bump down to a 4/0 size hook.
And you can go up to a 6/0 hook if the Pigfish are extra large.
Try to face downwind and cast the Pigfish out in front of you.
You want to be able to feel the line in your hand because this technique requires free-lining the Pigfish.
Once you cast the bait out, hold your rod tip straight up in the air and every once in a while give the rod a few aggressive pops.
The objective is to erratically pop the tip of the rod which makes the Pigfish start to grunt.
When they start to grunt and make noise, that is what attracts fish and triggers strikes.
You don’t want to drag the Pigfish across the bottom.
Just give the tip of the fishing rod a few quick twitches.
If you get a bump, you’ll feel more of a thump down in the bottom of the rod.
Slight taps on the tip of your rod are just the Pigfish getting nervous on the end of your line.
When you feel a bite, the fish is going to try and pull away.
Move your arms and the rod down with the fish to create tension in the line and then set the hook.
This gives the fish enough time to have the Pigfish in their mouth.
If you set the hook right as the fish hits the Pigfish, you’ll put it away from them every time.
We crushed big redfish and trout all week on Pigfish.
You’ve just got to make sure you’re rigging them correctly and retrieving them right or else, you’ll miss fish!
Stay patient and focused on any tension in the line!
