Slam Fishing - Florida Redfish Seatrout Snook(00:33:58)
Redfish and seatrout are relatively easy to catch. However, snook presents a slightly more challenging inshore species. The real test? Using a single artificial lure to catch all three in a single day.
Captain William Toney is here to guide you through this exciting challenge. Using a DOA, MirrOlure jig combo, he demonstrates how to hook a seatrout, redfish, and snook in one afternoon. This isn't about trophy fishing; it's about slam fishing. The primary goals? Achieve the slam and have an exhilarating time doing it.
Each fish species tends to inhabit different areas:
- Seatrout prefer hard bottom grass flats. Drifting is the ideal method here, using the jig to mimic wounded prey. The key difference in presentation for seatrout is the addition of a popping cork. For more on seatrout, watch Sea Trout Fishing Videos with Captain William Toney.

- Redfish are more active during the incoming tide, often found near rocky points. It's crucial to keep your bait moving, especially in rocky areas. Vertical jigging is the recommended technique. While the DOA, MirrOlure combo is effective, various baits work well for redfish. Dive deeper into redfish fishing with Redfish Fishing Videos.
