What To Do When The Bite Slows Down [VIDEO]
My favorite days out on the water are when the fish are trapped in low-tide areas and forced to feed in smaller bodies of water.
These fish will stay hungry and try to actively feed on bait even in skinny water.
Paddletails and shrimp imitation lures perform extremely well during this time.
But after you reel in a few fish from one small area using the same artificial lure, the bite tends to slow down after a while.
To combat this, you can change over to a different style lure, and lots of times that will work.
But in the case that the fish get spooked and become skittish, my favorite thing to do is fish with Mud Minnows.
On a recent trip, I had the Slam Shady 2.0 rigged up on a 1/4 oz. Z-Man Trout Eye jighead and after reeling in a few fish, the bite died down.
But I knew the fish hadn’t moved and were still there.
So all I did was take off the Slam Shady paddletail and replaced it with a live mud minnow right on the jighead.
Casting out a mud minnow on a jighead and letting it sit on the bottom is less intrusive and is incredibly hard for redfish to resist.
Also, you don’t have to waste any time by using the same jighead you’ve already got tied on.
When it comes to rigging the mud minnows, simply slide the hook through the bottom lip and out the top lip.
Cast it out and wait for a bite!
Mud minnows are excellent bait for inshore fish and only need to be kept in water to last the whole day of fishing.
Especially when you are fishing in low tide areas, the fish don’t have an escape route and can feel pressured.
They’ll get spooked by seeing the same lure over and over again in front of them.
All you need is some mud minnows to shake things up!!
