This Is How To Catch An Inshore Slam In Under 2 Hours With A Dog [VIDEO]
By: Luke Simonds on August 29, 2017
Ever caught an inshore slam with an energetic dog on your skiff?
Trust me, it’s not easy (but it does make for some entertaining footage as you’ll see below).
And it’s not just any dog that I had on my boat…
It was Otis.
Meet Otis (“the Salt Strong dog”):
- 1.5-year-old yellow lab
- Weighs 95 lbs
- Absolutely LOVES fishing…
- But completely loses it when a fish is on the line
Here’s a pic of Otis all smiles after chasing a 32″ snook all around a shallow flat:
But I still enjoy bringing Otis out on the boat because he always increases the level of adventure given that it’s impossible to predict what he’ll do next.
You’ll see what I mean in the video below that was filmed during a quick morning exploration fishing trip to Clearwater, FL.
This video is great for anyone who likes fishing or dogs because there’s plenty of action from both parties.
Clearwater Fishing Report [Slam with Dog]
Being an expert in a given region is not a requirement for consistently catching redfish, snook, trout, or any other inshore species.
The most important thing to focus on is becoming an expert at quickly finding the areas with the most feeding fish.
Because when you do that, everything else becomes easier so that you can:
- Catch lots of fish even on short trips
- Quickly find success even when exploring new areas
- Have fish-catching fun even when bringing a loud dog/human on board
The 3 most important functions you need to master to consistently catch inshore fish throughout the year:
- Being able to find good fishing spots (must-know seasonal patterns)
- Quickly assessing an area for being either a Feeding Zone or a Dead Zone
- Knowing the trends for general areas to focus on and which lures/baits to use
Want Help Consistently Catching More Inshore Fish?
If you feel that you need help in any of the 3 functions shown above, then I highly recommend checking out the Insider Fishing Community because its core focus is to help you get proficient at consistently finding and catching inshore fish throughout all seasons.
Not only do we teach the latest tactics and strategies required to successfully find and catch redfish, seatrout, snook, & flounder…
But we also show you the exact spots that we’re finding them each and every week so that you can seek out similar feeding zone spots in whichever area you’re fishing (just like I did on this short trip to Clearwater).
For example, our Insiders got first access to this video footage.
Plus, they received supplemental videos showing me do my pre-trip planning activities before I left as well as the details on exactly where every fish was caught/seen on the trip using the lowest level view on Google maps.
This additional information helps them to see the most up-to-date trends along with the most effective tactics and strategies that we’re using on our trips.
