You need to direct tie this lure to braided line, we recommend one of the two set-ups:
- For general fishing around docks, scattered cover, and for super accurate casting use a 7' - 7'3" casting rod, medium heavy along with your favorite 30-40 lb braid. you'll get accurate casts, the lure will have great action, and you'll have plenty of tack to catch any fish that bites.
- If you are fishing matted cover, or around especially large fish, you can go with a 7'6" rod and increase the braid to 50-65 lb test.
This lure skips very well and can be used to fish under docks and deep into cover. Especially effective during spawning season!
