Lately I have been thinking about retrieve speed when inshore fishing. Lets say you are drifting a bank searching for fish casting at docks, the bank, or out into open water. How slow do you retrieve the lure? To fish a popping cork effectively shouldn't it take around 1.5 minutes (rough estimate) to retrieve? DOA shrimp is another one. Watch videos of Mark Nichols on Youtube fishing the shrimp and it is a VERY slow twitch, pause, reel, retrieve. When I have fished for an hour or two without a strike my bad habit is to speed up the lure subconsciously to cover more water, thus leading to fish ignoring my lure. I think this is also why I have favored 1/4 oz jigheads over 1/8 oz jigheads because it just seemed like the 1/8 oz rigged lure just stayed too close to the top. Am I correct in thinking that a slow retrieve is ALMOST ALWAYS better than a fast one?
