Effective and casts pretty well
January 9, 2014
Have a couple of the 6" version in blue for when the mullet are around and a couple 6" in gold chrome to match the hatch when bunker are around. Compared to the Long A and A Salt (which cast like potato chips) this plug casts much farther in comparison. I have caught a bunch of stripers, blues on both colors. I prefer to use this plug in calmer surf conditions as it doesn't swim well in rougher white water and tends to tumble on itself quite a bit. Where this plug really shines is on the breachways and an outgoing tide. I cast to the center of the breachway and let out 80-100 yds of line. I'll let the current do most of the work and use a slow retrieve, periodically stopping and letting the plug just wiggle in the current. Many times it's when I stop it that I get hit. Fun plug to fish. Recommendation, change out the hooks with either 2/0 or 3/0 VMCs. The stock hooks are cheap and will bend on a good fish.
