It’s popping cork time!
Want to see exactly how to rig a popping cork for redfish, flounder, snook, and trout? Then watch this new video where Tony from Salt Strong reveals his best popping cork tactics.
If you haven’t used a popping cork before, the “feeding sound” they make are great at attracting predatory fish (like redfish, snook, flounder, and trout) while keeping your bait in the strike zone.
The best news is that pretty much anyone can use a popping cork (even newbies and kids).
And because the popping cork gives you some extra weight, it’s really easy to cast it far (even in the wind).
As you’ll see in this popping cork video, I’ve found that the color of your popping cork doesn’t matter (the bright color is simply for you to see so you know when a fish strikes your bait).
The best times to use a popping cork are usually when fishing in murky water or when the fish need a little sound and vibration to get stirred up and find the bait.
Popping corks can be used with live bait, dead bait (shrimp), and artificial lures.
As you’ll see in the video, I like certain sized hooks and certain length leaders when using popping corks.
The popping corks I use in the video are made by Cajun Thunder (one of the most popular brands), and I usually go with bright yellow so that I can see it better.
