Default lure tactics

What are some good resources for learning how to use lures? I've tried youtube and google with limited success. Most were vids of people already reeling in fish on the lures. Interested in learning how to use some of the gulp products, spoons, rat-l-traps, etc.

What southern said. Do your own thing and see what works for you! I've spent countless hours on my yak feeling like a fool(or a kid with turrets in the hands) with my cast and retrieves. Think of it like driving: you have the general knowledge of how to start the car and get it going but you perfect it in your own way with expereince and knowing what works and what doesn't.

my favorite though is to pull the tail off fresh shrimp and hook from the tail side through the body with a 1/8oz jig head...

So, when you're retrieving, the shrimp would be traveling backwards?

Hahaha... I like dragging plastics on the bottom as slow as absolutely possible... When you feel the flounder thump, let it sit for 15 seconds (which feels like forever).... Slowly reel in the slack to see if you have a fish on, then set the hook....

Flounder are the hardest fish for me to catch....

Ha I'll do my best...just seems like so many are created for so many different motions. Some a constant steady reel, some you gotta jerk, some you gotta walk the dog...just don't know which methods to use with which bait. Getting some ideas though. I'm a research hound. My wife can't stand when I get a new hobby, cause I want to learn everything about it!
