  2. Our favorite color is the watermelon red. This color works well in every Florida lake.

  3. Thread the hook straight down the top of the fluke pulling the knot into the fluke.

  4. Push the hook into the belly of the fluke with the tail arched down. Do not puncture the fluke

    The arch in the fluke keeps the bait from spinning. And will help keep the bait to dive down.

  5. Cast your fluke and let it sink to the zone where the fish are biting

    This is an important step. By putting the bait in the strike zone and leaving it there, the bait will look more natural

  6. Quickly twitch your fluke two to three times and pause for about 5 seconds.

    This technique is called ‘dead sticking’. This makes the bait look like its darting away from a bass then pausing. Typically during the pause is when you will get a strike.

  7. Repeat until your bait is all the way in.
