Stuff I Like: Mirrodine Suspending Twitchbaits
It's been a while since I added an new artificial to my lure box. I've been more than content over the past few years with Zara Spooks for top water action and Gulps for everything else. That changed recently after another guide told me about the big trout he was landing with the Mirrodine Suspending Twitchbaits. When he showed me a photo of a pair of 20 inchers that hit the same lure, with one fish hanging from each treble hook, I was convinced and ran out and bought a handful. He made me a believer and the gator trout in Matlacha Pass have really been responding to these excellent baits from Mirrolure. Best of all, they're effortless to use. I can hand a rod with a Mirrodine to an inexperienced angler and have them working it perfectly with very little instruction. You just reel and stop, reel and stop. It's that easy and the gator trout can't turn it down. Every tackle shop in the area sell these so if you don't have one in your box, go out and get two.
