Hi Guys,

Just came around this little Jackson lure . It's 8 cm long and weights 8 gr. It will dive no deeper than 1 ft. I will give this one a go this upcoming season. I think it will do great on calm days.



Has any one tried the Dead Float 80 already?

They have to be worked super slow or they lose stability. Nice lures though. I've used the 125.

Came across the lure on the jackson website (mentioned above by Harold) when i was bored and surfing around hehe. It looks really nice and caught my attention. Because it's swims shallow, i got a sort of brainwave for some marks where this lure could be very good.

Hi Ben, thanks for the advice! just one question, how do you work them? Ok, two questions ;-) and how do they handle (strong)current?

@Harold
Have you tried them already? They seem to be a great lure for all those shallow marks in the Oosterschelde. And the bigger versions could be great for later on in the season. I will give them a go in the "Europoort" within a few weeks.

Keith might disagree Chris, but I think they'll be useless in strong current. Because the bib is quite narrow, when they begin to move too fast its all too easy for them to roll on their side and become useless. They're very easy to work on a slow, straightretrieve and fishing like this with pauses is almost the only way to do it. They look great, but their massive roll is almost their downfall once they get too quick. I do like them though. They're very well made (like all Jackson lures).

No Chris, i don,t try the lure yet.
But like you said, a nice shallow lure for a lot of sports in the oosterschelde.

Not a fast lure. Does roll out but, not designed to be a fast lure. Is good at slow speed over shallow reef but does handle twitching where it rolls to flash it's flanks catching any available light. It quickly corrects after this roll maneuver when I stop mine and wait.
