how do you retrieve mirro lures? i see them in the stores and always wanted to try them for trout. do you also use a leader so their teeth dont break the line?

Very slowly for trout...keep your line tight in the current. Ladyfish and bluefish will run after them when you're ripping them back after it floats out of the hot spot so a faster retrieve if you want other fish can work.

Trout teeth are kind of like flounder teeth to me, more for gripping and holding, not slicing like a blue or Spanish going 20 mph. I would use a leader at the jetty, probably will save a few $10 plugs. In the surf you don't have to especially with clear mono.

Go see Steve when he's working at the Outpost I'm sure he'll set you up right.
