Fluke Fishing Strategies

December 26, 2011 | Author: | Posted in Fish

1. The Bucktail: This truly is my all-time preferred artificial lure. I prefer white or lime-green colors in or 1 oz. size. Ball head style is fine but a sharp nosed bullet design will function nicely in quick moving water. I trim the bucktail to just behind the hook. I usually fish it tipped-off with a brief strip of pork rind getting a split tail. White pork rind or green appears to function greatest. I function the bucktail along the bottom with a fairly slow jigging stroke. I lift the tip of the rod about two feet and slowly let the lure settle back towards the bottom, by no means letting slack produce within the line. I let it lay on the bottom for a fraction of a second following which begin the cycle once more. The strike will usually come on the drop or as the lure sits on the bottom. I’m usually ready to strike the fish aggressively. Sharp hooks are a must.
