A popping cork fished over a live mullet, shrimp or mud minnow

One thing is certain in the world of fishing – corks will almost always lead the way to more fish, especially when you are after reds and trout during the hot summer months.

Last Saturday, I was fishing on Keith Lake, along with a ton of other fishermen, and not doing too well with lures. But there were mullet everywhere. The solution was simple – rig up a popping cork, use the cast net to box a couple dozen finger mullet and see what happens. The end result was three reds and two trout within an hour.
