Bait & Ac­ces­sories

Sport Fishing Gear Guide - - Contents -

Pro an­gler An­drew Luch says, “If you enjoy bot­tom fish­ing with con­sis­tent ac­tion, get down to your lo­cal tackle shop and give the new Mega Bite Max Shad 6 oz swim baits by Light­house Lures a swim. This past sea­son I had the op­por­tu­nity to sam­ple these baits. Ev­ery time I put them on for clients they caught a wide va­ri­ety of species Ling Cod, Quill Back, Yel­low eye even Hal­ibut.” The ac­tion drives any preda­tory fish crazy. The Max shads are equipped with two laser sharp hooks, and come pre-scented. Tac­tics for fish­ing these swim baits are fairly easy, find a drop off, sig­nif­i­cant depth change, pin­na­cle or rock pile, and work it. Stay­ing straight up and down with your line is the key. Luch likes to drop them to bot­tom, reel them up 3.5 – 6m (5-20 ft) then drop them back down, and re­peat, main­tain­ing con­trol and tight­ness of your line at all times. He ex­claims, “It’s a rush when you feel the Max shad drop­ping to bot­tom then get ab­so­lutely crushed by a fish. I use them in depths any­where from 6 to 66m (20-220ft) depend­ing on tidal speed. These swim baits are a lot of fun to use on light rods and reels, and are a must have if you enjoy tar­get­ing bot­tom fish.” www.light­house­lures.com
