Hi there I mentioned this lure on another thread but didnt go into much detail!! I have a couple of bull chops and have caught some good bass on them. 120mm and 40grms. They absolutely fly!! unlike some wtd/stick types theese actually sink backwards tail first when left. I tend to cast them out and "feel"the lure drop by holding the rod tip high and using a controled lower of the rod tip till its more or less horizontal, then i will add a couple of twitches and pauses before short cranking to get the lure to wtd and repeating. Another nice retrieve style is to get the lure "on top" and keeping a slightly raised angle on the rod twitching and pausing with small slides to work the lure just below the surface with occasional surface breaks. Incidentally this lure works brilliant for pollack "on the drop" aswell. good lure that covers lots additional styles that an out and top water bait does`nt!

i was thinking it would be good for pollock(letting it drop deep)then short twitches to get it back up to top.then repeat again.
thanks for the info

Never caught a bass on one yet but seem to get into pollack with my Bull Chop. They sink well which can be a problem if its snaggy.

Smashed barracuda on them in the Keys, but that's not much help as regards bass........plus I lost the one I had out there and need to get a replacement to then play with it for our bass.
