Mini-Courses Mentioned in the Video:

Fish eat BOTH of these lure styles.

The key is choosing the right one to match the hatch and to avoid spooking the fish.

Both lures have their own advantages as well as some disadvantages depending on the outside conditions and fish behavior patterns.

Water clarity and other factors will help lead you to the correct lure style to fish with.

I also don’t get a chance to fish in salt water as much being from south Central Maine but the salt strong swim baits work great for large and small mouths caught a few up to 6 lbs in local ponds with mossy mullet and slam shady colors

Paddle tails are also very effective for nighttime fishing as well. Low light dark paddle tails with contrast are best.

Good learning information, now I have to see if the skill usage pays off. Guess I need to re-enforce my cognitive skills by reviewing the mini courses.

Maybe this is an odd scenario: I can’t get out all the time to the bay to fish. I like to practice my casting and rigs with my saltwater setups in my small bass lakes at home. Will they still catch fish?

Great! I was fishing in murky water last week with cut bait. Going to have to seriously give a paddle tail a try. Thanks for the great information…
