Fishing without live bait

Postby Brad6655 on Sun Aug 16, 2015 8:34 am

Does anyone have any luck fishing with artificial bait? I have found a few schools, and tried jigging over them with no luck, anyone have any tips?

Trolling artificials can be VERY productive this time of the year. Troll with lead core line and/or downriggers so you can get deep, 35- 50 ft. Use white based bucktails with white or chartreuse grub trailers. The schoolie fish you are seeing typically are small and mixed with small Bass, especially if you are seeing them up in the day.

Honestly, I've never had any luck with this type of fishing. I tried it a couple of times just out curiosity and caught nothing.

artificial use now is different than the hot summer months. I have friends going out and catching by throwing into breaking fish and vertical jigging over marked fish down deeper. Both methods are catching fish. Most surface fish are small, up to 3.5 lbs, some of the deep fish are up to 12lbs. As with any type of fishing you have to find the fish first.- Good luck.- Bill
