The new and improved Maguroni Lure by OTI
July 10, 2014
Review/Comments - Ocean Tackle International acquired Maguroni Lures and rather than put the fairly popular lure right back into production, they took the time to evaluate the design with an eye on improving it. In my opinion OTI was highly successful and the MAG-1101 is an improvement over the original lure. The internal weight system not only lets you cast the lure farther and it doubles as a rattle and will attract fish in the area. The lure casts like a dart and this eliminates fouling the hooks with line/leader and then coming tight on a fish. I believe the through plate used in place of wire makes for a stronger lure, I haven't had a MAG-1101 body crushed by a tuna yet. The lure will jink left and right walking the dog, dart left and right on sweeps, dart like a crippled bait fish on twitches and it's swimming action depends on the rate of retrieval. This sinking lure is one of the best ones I have ever used. I have caught Yellow Fin Tuna, Black Fin Tuna, Bonito, Amberjacks, Barracuda, sharks and one Gag Grouper on these lures.
ProsPros - This is a versatile lure, worked fast it acts like a suspending lure while working it slower lets it settle deeper in the water column. I have drifted this lure deep an watched it on the bottom machine get down to where the YFT were schooling 100 - 150 feet down. Working the lure up through the water column using the various techniques results in a lot of predatory strikes. The action of this lure is so effective that a wide variety of fish find it almost irresistible.
ConsCons - I'm on my third order of lures because of sharks. The lure works so well that the sharks feel like they have to hit them too. I'm designing a long handled snipper so that when my lures get sharked I can cut the hooks off the lures, saving the expense of the lure for myself while not harming the shark other than adding to it's jewelry collection.

I have been using these lures a long time. OTI has taken the reigns of this lure and the Mag-1101 is an improvement on the original lure. It's stronger with the new metal insert instead of wire and I haven't had a big fish crush one yet. It casts well like a dart, doesn't tumble, the swimming action is superb and it's dodging and darting actions draw strikes! This is my top choice when it comes to a sinking lure, I have managed to take YFT that were holding 100 - 150 feet with this lure out at the rigs here. It is the best sinking big game lure I have ever used. I have caught big YFT in the northern GOM, BlkFT, Amberjacks, Bonito and even one Grouper on these lures. I have caught fish with every color combination but for some reason the Blue Flier draws the most vicious strikes , so if you can only have one of these that's the one to get. (not able to add pics at this time but will try to soon) This is truly a must have lure for anglers that smile when their lure is blown up on and the fish comes sailing out of the water with some familiar colors in it's mouth.

does it cast as well or better than SP Minnow ? and... is there an issue with the finish ? i ask because i have used 1 of OTI's other lures and after 1 day fishing ( and 1 nice fish ) the paint job was falling apart badly !
Hello Charlie! These lures will cast very similar to the ones you already have. As far as the finish, we have not heard on any issues with it until now. I can assure you though that if the finish does not hold up for a reasonable amount of time under basic usage, Ocean Tackle will definitely get you taken care off with their warranty.
