MirrOlure Provoker for Fall Speckled Trout

One of my go to baits for Fall trout fishing on the Nature Coast is the MirrOlure Provoker. It's a hearty 5" soft plastic bait that is scented. It can be fished weedless, with a jig head and under a cork. The many acres of flats with hard bottom and rock grass are the places to target big trout. Around 3 foot is the best depth and a little breeze and outgoing tide helps. Two of the best colors that are working for me are watermelon red flake and gold body /red back. Any given day though the color can change so I also keep bourbon and glow. I like to rig mine with a popping cork with the bait about 20" underneath on a 1/8th red jig head. Make a long cast ahead of the boat and give the cork a good pop and pause retrieve. Most of the strikes with be when the bait falls beneath the cork. Good luck and good fishing. Stay tuned up with In The Spread.

    Fishing Videos | Knowledge Transfer from In The Spread

    What I wanted to do with In The Spread, from inception, was to create an online library of instructional fishing videos that were geared towards how to target a wide variety of game fish. Everything from tackle prep, boat setup, boat driving, boat positioning, locating fish, making presentations, rigs, baits, lures, philosophies, what if's and why's is considered. I don't just do it once for a given species.
