The Inshore Bite

Summer has given way to Fall here in Eastern NC. For trout fishermen, it's the wonderful time of year. Cooler morning temperatures are welcomed as we set out early to find some willing trout. For me, setting out on the kayak and paddling to my favorite trout holes, I imagine how the bite will be. The thump of a trout is like no other, with only a split second to react and set the hook sometimes. Knowing you have the right presentation with a Z-Man Trout Trick, Swimmin' Trout Trick or 3" Minnowz on an 3/16oz Trout Eye jighead keeps you at ease.

Hands down, these are the three go to baits we use for our trout. With great numbers and quality fish coming to the boat, we consistently use these presentations. The buoyancy of the baits is the key. Using their floating capabilities to make them look so lifelike in the water gets us our bites. I suggest trying them out in clear water to see how they work, this will give you the know how to work the baits. We always say throw what you're confident in and with Z-Man soft plastics confidence comes easy.
