This Shortcut Helped Me Quickly Catch 7 Redfish & Snook In New Spots
What’s the most important thing when it comes to catching fish?
Is it the right spot?
The right bait or lure?
Is it experience, or time on the water?
I’d argue that it’s none of those things.
On this trip, I went out with no planned spots, to somewhere I’d never fished before, with just one lure.
However, I was armed with one simple shortcut that allowed me to have a great morning full of snook and redfish.
Want to see what that shortcut was?

So there you have it…
There’s no perfect fishing spot…
There’s no magic lure…
And you don’t need to have fished a spot before to have success there…
It’s all about the trends.
In this case, the trend that was being reported in the Insider Club was that fish were hanging out at these types of spots:
- near shorelines of the major bays
- fairly close to passes and inlets
- on the windblown side
- with good structure and baitfish.
I cruised around until I found a spot that checked all the boxes of the current trend and Pa-POW!
Landed my first fish about three minutes into the trip.
This trend was reported in the Insider Club, and if you want access to the most up-to-date trends, click here to learn about the club.
The great thing about trends is that if you know the current trend, you can go out and find that type of spot near you.
You don’t need to rely on other people to share exact spots in your area, but instead, you can find honey holes of your own.
So how do you find out the current trends?
The best way is to have a network.
We’ve asked many professional anglers what their secret is and almost all of them have revealed they have excellent networks of people that share trends with them.
If you want to shortcut building your fishing network, join us in the Insider Club.
You’ll be joining nearly 10,000 other members who are sharing real-time trends and helping each other catch more fish.

This trip was down in Charlotte Harbor which is on the Gulf coast of Florida.
I was wondering if the Slam Shady work in fresh water such as bass
Yes, these Slam Shady paddletails works great for any freshwater fish that feeds on 3 to 5 inch baitfish (bass, garfish, specked perch, walleye, peacock bass, smallmouth bass, northern pike, catfish, etc. have all been caught on these lures so far).
What rod are you using. The one fishing the slam shady?
I was using this TFO rod: https://www.saltstrong.com/articles/temple-fork-outfitter-spinning-rod-review/
I blame the dog missing on the pass from the qb.
I’m going next week to Clearwater can I catch redfish in that area
Yes, Clearwater is a great fishery for redfish. Here’s a fun video of my first time fishing there that I believe you’ll enjoy: https://www.saltstrong.com/fishing-tip/clearwater-fishing-report/
The other day I was fishing with some friends out of a boat. We were contemplating a move, and one of us was sitting there with his trout trick just hanging over the side in the water while we discussed options when a 30” red ate it. That’s why you fish all the way to the boat! I’ve been catching many more fish closer to the boat lately. Nice looking habitat area in your video. Beautiful.
Got to love it when a great fish hits when you’re least expecting it!!! The only time it’s impossible to get a bite is when the lines are out of the water:)
Nice catchin, great tips!
Luke the small points and pockets that you pointed out were exactly where I was catching the larger trout this past weekend. Funny how no matter where you’re at the trends can be the same. Nice video!
Very cool! Yes, the core trends will almost always be working in all regions as long as the trending weather is similar (warming, cooling, etc) given that each species of fish will react to the changing conditions the same way based on their biological preferences.
