Default Mirrodine 17MR

For the fishermen who are catching trout/reds on the mirrodine, what time of the day is better, incoming/out-going tide and water depth? Thanks in advance!!!

It doesn't matter...that thing is like crack to the trout...they can't resist it and they will hammer it.

What seems to be the hot color? Also how are you guys working them, constant retrieve with a twitch here and there? Sorry to jack your thread just curious as well.

I use the #18, 49 and the CFPR the most with a twitch twitch reel up slack and do it again. Had the best luck in 7' or less water but have had them come from deeper to eat one.

my experience as well.

It's not too popular but i actually use the vampire color. Cant remember the exact name, but either that or something fruity with a white belly is good. slow jigs with a slow retrieve work for me. some of the easiest fish to catch in the bays in my opinion.

as for time of day I usually have better luck in the early morning from sun-up to about 2 hours after. they will hit it all day, but you can limit out earlier in the day.

I've used 4 different colors and all produce fish. I use them just about the whole time I'm fishing. Last Sunday was a neap tide and I still killed um.

I bet you could buy one of those and paint it pitch black and they would still kill it.

Purchased one today for the first time. Will try it this weekend on Escambia for some Reds. I got a perfect spot, they normally will kill a crank bait, let's see if they'll crush this one. More to come...
