You’ve Got To See This Amazing Underwater Lure-Striking Footage!!


This is so awesome!!!

Have you ever wondered exactly what happens under the water right before a fish strikes your lure?

I sure did.

I used to always wonder how many fish saw my lure before one would actually strike (along with a million other questions).

So Joe and I decided to do an experiment to see if we could get some underwater footage of speckled trout hitting the Slam Shady…

We got what we wanted… and much more!

Check the incredible video below.

Was that amazing or what?!

Even with a camera right in front of the lure, that trout couldn’t resist the Slam Shady… and that shark couldn’t resist the trout!

I’ll be putting together a detailed report that shows the trends of exactly how these trout strike (based on the underwater footage) and the best tactics to catch them, so keep an eye out for that coming soon!

Wow, was that wild! I’m amazed the shark missed getting that trout. Being hooked up, they are usually a goner! Great video, the camera is a fantastic idea! I’d love to try that on a Hubbard’s offshore trip, and try to get some video of snapper and grouper going after a bait!

Totally Awesome. Glad the shark didn’t mistake the camera for a nice juicy eel.

Very interesting. Fishermen are concerned about using swivels on their leaders because it may spook fish and you are catching fish with a camera attached in front of the leader. It not like you using camera to attract fish. It appears you may want to beef up the rod weight to cast the camera.

I agree fully. I am a minimalist and dislike any additional hardware. I’m 65 and when I was young old guys would troll with big plugs for snook. They would use XL plugs like old rebels that look good size mullet. Just a thought. Keep up the good work.

Hey Luke , where can I purchase the under water Camera? What is the Brand and the Model number of the camerea?

I left my Water Wolf up north. We use it from time to time video taping walleye chasing our lures. Great video.., they are always amazing to see how fish strike. If saltwater species are anything like their freshwater cousins, you will see a lot of times they just follow a bait. They will make “false” runs at the lure then back off and then come back around to grab it, especially if another fish shows interest. That video you made was great I would sure like to see more if nothing else very entertaining.

Ok that was cool. I have some public underwater cameras bookmarked on my camera. They are stationary ones and I check them often. Amazing to see what’s underwater.

Great job Luke thanks so much. Maybe You can hook up with John Skinner to get his fluke/flounder videos. They will make one stop saying they are ambush only predators. His videos show them following 100’s of feet and if angler stops movement they disappear!
