It's funny how anglers can get so geeked up about an upcoming fishing trip that we play it out in our minds as to how we're going to catch them. When I'm headed out on a fun fishing trip to a place I haven't been for awhile, I have an idea of how I think — and hope — I'm going to catch them. But it doesn't always work out that way.
It pays to think "outside the box" when assessing how and when to use lures.Many baits are stereotyped for specific situations, and in the case of soft plastics, that includes how we rig them.
