As this year comes to a close; we would like to take a minute and say thank you for all of your loyal support. Hopefully the Catch365 section has provided you with a few tips, some tricks to help catch a few more fish, and if nothing else a few laughs and good pictures to check out.
Tomorrow we roll into the new Catch365 format. For 2015 we are hoping to bring you a year of YOUR catches. Send us your pics (firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Catch365) and a brief description to go along with it. Also be sure to use #catch365 on Instagram and Facebook.
It's gonna be a great year. ESPECIALLY if you make the following resolution...Work less, Fish MORE!
"Blend In BUT Stand Out"
Ever noticed how a snook's color changes based on the environment it's living in. Many baitfish and shrimp do the same thing. Always consider this when picking out lure colors...Blend in BUT Stand out a little at the same time!
Heddon's Super Spook (the big brother to the classic Zara Spook) is a great lure to throw in dirty water conditions. The size and noise work well together to help call the fish up. Don't be intimidated by the larger size of the lure. It'll catch small trout (pictured) all the way up to monster tarpon. Plus the extra weight makes it easier to cast longer distances.

All kinds of cool stuff likes to hang out under (and around) spanish mackerel schools at Pack's Lake. This grouper caught by Ryan was probably just hanging out underneath picking off scraps as they drifted down to him. Mangrove and mutton snapper, goliath grouper, kingfish, and sharks are all around the mackerel schools right now.

"In the Spread"
No trolling spread is complete without a small trolling/tuna feather and a cedar plug in it. These two "oldschool" lures have great fish catching power, and will often get a bite over even the nicest looking ballyhoo. The cedar plug performs best on the "shotgun" line ("WTF back" is another popular placement term when it comes to setting the cedar plug). Put the cedar plug way back and let it work its magic. The trolling feather works well in close and way out, so don't be afraid to play with its placement to find the lucky spot!
"Skip To It"
Don't let low hanging branches or docks keep you from getting your lures to hungry waiting fish. Use a side arm motion to skip your bait under low hanging objects like our friend Steve does in this video clip.
