Inshore saltwater fishing is a fun way to pass the time as well as bring in some amazing fish. There are many excellent saltwater fishing rods available at Castaway Rods and one of their popular rods at the moment is the Inshore Smoker ISMS7. This rod is great for inshore fishing with top waters, plastics, or popping corks. Today, we will talk about some topwater lures that would pair nicely with this rod and how to use them.

There are many different brands of topwater lures out there that would work wonderfully with this rod. A topwater lure is a bait that looks like a small fish with two to three sets of hooks. One hook will be on the end of the lure where the tail is, and the other hooks will be on the underside. It just depends on the size of the lure, whether it has two or three sets of hooks. You'll want to find a lure that creates a dramatic reel in and will mimic a wounded baitfish. Most large fish are looking for wounded baitfish and are going to strike on big movements created by a dramatic lure. When you're throwing these lures, you'll want to reel in while jerking slightly. If a fish bites at your lure but doesn't hook, you'll want to try and keep reeling as if it were truly a baitfish trying to get away. Throwing a topwater lure like this will catch you snook, redfish, and tarpon. If you're fishing for snook or tarpon, you'll see that these fish usually fully inhale these types of lures, but redfish usually only bite at the back hook.

You can find amazing options of inshore saltwater fishing rods of many different sizes whenever you shop for rods at Castaway Rods. Talk to their team about your fishing needs, and they're sure to point you in the right direction.
