Rigging soft plastics under a popping cork is a great way to catch fish on the flats.

Many people debate which brands are best, but here’s something that is actually more important:

What the lure is made of.

Some lures are made of buoyant material while some lures sink, and you’ll be surprised at how much more natural one looks over the other underwater.

So in this video, I’m going to show you some underwater footage of several different lures so you can see what they really look like in action and use that knowledge to catch more fish.

These tips are relevant whether you’re using a jerk shad, paddletail, or shrimp lure, and could be the difference between you coming home with a cooler full of fish or you coming home skunked.
