**Casting to gator trout is a game of stealth and patience. The angler working the teaser essentially fishes the flat, prospecting until he locates a trophy trout. The secret is to keep the teaser moving at all times and not let it slow down, settle in the grass or give a big, wary sow trout time to inspect it closely. Conversely, when a big trout seizes the teaser, it's crucial to overcome the impulse to strike hard, which spooks the fish. The best "dance step" for the teaser angler requires slow, constant reeling and a firm, steady pull to draw the teaser from the fish, as the angler casts a fly or artificial in front of the trout.
