The Sinking Slug-Go is a new unique soft plastic lure that closely resembles our common sand eel and imitates a dying, struggling baitfish; the ultimate quarry for predatory fish such as cod, pollack and in particular bass.
We tested the Slug-Go lure on a bass shore fishing trip to our usual venues and the results were mind blowing. The lure out-fished every other lure we had ever relied upon and most importantly.... it out-fished live baits! Soft plastic fishing lures have caused a revolution across the globe...but their potential has never been fully realised in the UK. To date we have only been offered lures that simply don’t offer a genuine imitation of the bait fish of the British Isles. Most of the soft plastic lures available in the UK base themselves around the basic patterns of weighted shads or rubber tailed eels.
These lures are all designed to imitate a swimming fish and the lures action is predictable and consistent. The Slug-Go is a lure which is designed in such a way that when worked properly (it is not sufficient to just wind it in) it mimics an injured, distressed bait fish. It has an erratic, random and unpredictable action which stimulates a predatory fish like the bass to attack. On top of this, the lure has the advantage of being virtually weedless enabling you to cover ground that would usually be dismissed casting a conventional lure or any other weighted soft plastic.
The 6 inch lures should be rigged using a size 4/0 or 5/0 Hook, texas style. 8 in a pack.
The 7.5 Inch Slug-Go should be rigged with a 4/0 or 5/0 hook. 5 in a pack.
The 9 Inch lures should be rigged with a 5/0 hook. 3 in a pack.
This is the sinking version of the original Slug-Go, the lure is impregnated with salt to provide additional weight.
