The ‘Razzle Dazzle’ Lure Retrieve For Sight Fishing Spooky Fish
This post will show you a unique lure retrieve for sight fishing that performs extremely well when fish are finicky when up in the shallows.
Sight fishing is an absolute thrill and makes for such a rewarding catch when you do it using an artificial lure. But it can be incredibly frustrating when a fish spooks off even after a great cast was made.
In most cases, these good cast spooks are caused by the fish feeling or seeing something unnatural as you are delivering your lure through the water.
I used to think it was all about the action of the lure, but I have more recently realized that the action and movement of the line as it moves through the water can be a factor too.
Here’s a new video that shows a breakdown of a recent snook catch for the details on how to maximize your odds of getting strikes from finicky fish in the shallows using the ‘Razzle Dazzle’ lure retrieve.

Sight fishing can often result in the most thrilling catches of all because it’s a blend of hunting and fishing which combines the need for stealth, casting accuracy, and lure/bait retrieve.
And the fact that the fish can be seen throughout the sequence of events makes for the ultimate test of a fisherman in which he/she can’t hide from when the cast doesn’t result in a catch.
On top of the need to being stealthy with the cast and presentation of the lure to a fish in calm and clear water, it’s important to use a lure that isn’t too loud (no rattles) and has the following characteristics:
- Good action
- Casting performance (distance and accuracy)
And our new shrimp lure was designed to have all four of these important characteristics which is why is has quickly become my favorite lure for this type of fishing.
Not only does this lure perform well at drawing strikes when fishing docks, but it seems to fool the bigger fish more frequently given that my average catch size has gone way up since I began using it.
Make sure to get some of these new lures if you haven’t yet done so.
