Bucktails for trout etc in the Indian river lagoon...?

Rate this topic

3 posts in this topic

Hi. I’ve been having success in my kayak on the lagoon near SI using soft plastics, mirrolures, and DOA shrimp catching mostly trout. I’d much rather use my own bucktails but only have one mold that has small enough weight - 1/4 oz popeye jig. I wonder if anyone uses small bucktails for this type of fishing here, and if so what type of jig head? I’m considering buying a mold for smaller bucktails, 1/8-3/8 oz,, but am unsure which one.

 

just made 10 1/4 oz popeye bucktails to try this out...

Icar, I use 1/8 oz jig heads and reins fat rockvibe Swimbait in silver/white, shorter ones.  With or without specks. Tackle warehouse sells them. 

 

 

The trout on west coast like white/silver plastics. Cast, let it sink, retrieve it a bit, stop, let it drop, repeat. The trout will hit on the drop. 

 

For plugs west coast, gold is the color that’s eaten more. Estero Bay Area thats our go to color.
