How To Fish
Skitter Pop (salt water)
When fish are aggressive or busting bait, use the “skitter” technique. This is a retrieve with a steady cadence (either slow or fast) while pumping the rod tip, creating a stop and start spitting commotion imitating a fleeing or wounded baitfish.
Another technique is popping the lure. This is done by giving the lure a sharp jerk and letting the lure rest while reeling in the slack. The lure will spit water quite a ways using this approach.
A third technique is twitching. Cast the Skitter Pop out, letting the water calm and then twitching the lure on the surface. This will imitate a wounded baitfish or frog struggling on the surface. If you let the line go slack between twitches the lure will have a side to side action as well.
Keep the rod tip down for subtle presentation. For more commotion and an aggressive presentation, keep the rod tip up on the first half or the retrieve, then down for the last half to keep the lure from popping out of the water.
