Tips on proper techniques used when throwing sand eels, trout killers, etc....I'm trying to get away from live bait and it's about as difficult as giving up smoking. Thanks in advance.

Reel and twitch. Bounce 'em off the bottom. You'll have to try different speeds/retrieves until you find what they want.

1) Cast out

2) Twitch (the rod tip)

3) Twitch (wait for a 3 count)

4) Reel

5) Twitch

6) Twitch

7) Reel

You can vary the speed of your retrieve to find out what the fish are wanting on any particular day. This method is also good with spoons, suspending lures and topwater plugs. Heck, sometimes the fish will hit when you just do a straight retrieve! Good luck!

Cast out, let it drop to the bottom and retrieve witha jerk to where the lure will rise and fall again. Bump it on the bottom!
