The Magic Swimmer Soft can be used with many of the same tactics which you already use with hard-bodied Magic Swimmers. Much of the time, all you need to do is reel steadily, and either the soft or hard Magic Swimmer will swim seductively a few feet below the surface. When you suddenly spot gamefish scattering panicked bait on the surface, cast into the melee and reel quickly, holding your rod tip down. Used that way, both the soft or hard Magic Swimmer will rise to the top and wake the surface, wiggling frantically like fleeing baitfish.
Another of the most realistic ways to work both the hard and soft Magic Swimmer is to use one as a slowly-sinking twitchbait where you let it sink in or around any shallow cover. You can let one sink up to 8 or more feet as you twitch it with little downward twitches of the rod tip. Only twitch a few inches, and it will flip and flop in semi-circles and can easily do an about-face 180 degree turn-around when you lightly twitch it. One of the keys to this action is to twitch it, and then instantly move the rod tip back toward the lure so the lure may complete its movement on a slack, not tight line.
