The Z-Man ElaZtech Trout Trick has a trick to effectively catching your prey: it must be allowed to fall STRAIGHT DOWN to create a reaction bite. With your rod pointed at the lure, reel in the slack and give the rod a couple of jerks, then drop the rod tip and allow the bait to fall STRAIGHT DOWN towards the bottom. In shallow water, jerk the rod sideways to keep it in the water. The trout will hit it on the fall, and your next jerk becomes the hookset.
The theory is that the unique ribs of the bait create a vibration that sea trout and other species home in on. In fact, we found that the reaction to this lure is so strong that when you fish through a school of totally negative fish, they will even strike the Z-Man Trout Trick with their mouths closed!
Eventually, you will foul hook one and realize what's going on.
