Default BEST Way to catch...

A SPECK?

We all have our favorite pattern, but if you were to bring a kid fishing for the first time, what would you use?

For me it'd be a live shrimp two feet under a Cajun Thunder float working the edges of the grass flats. Flip it every 20 seconds or so.

Looking for that "go to" technique, NOT a "walking dog" 30 minutes before sunrise.

We'll address this again for other species if it works.

Use a popping cork, with a leadhead jig tied about 2' deep. Have him toss it out, and reel it in. Works great around the grassflats, and for deeper water, remove the cork. g/l

Lately I have had luck with live pinfish. either on floats or carolina rigs. Plus if you bring a youngster along, grab some ultralights and catch some pinfish on light tackle and use them as bait right then.... fresh as it gets

If you did not have live bait (shrimp), a 17 mirrOdine silver and red head would work great. Just be careful if a child is throwing or catching fish with it as it has double trebles!

Up there: Popping cork and live shrimp or Gulp ghost shrimp on small jighead.

Down here: Large red and white chug bug with a 2' leader tied to the back hook with a small jighead with a lime green grub. Two fish at once many times!
Also down here a red jighead with a white 3" gulp shrimp. Thats my Flamingo bait for trout.

It's really hard to beat a live shrimp under a popping cork along a grass line or drop off.

With kids, I'd use a jig under a cajun thunder. You won't get as much pin fish action, hence less rebaiting. If things are slow tip a jig with a pinch of fresh shrimp.

Live shrimp seems to be a solid method around here for sure. I also like the jig under a popping cork, gives the kids something to do other than just sit there and wait ....
