Mega Bass vision prop darter. 3 going to Ireland to play in the dirty water.



Prop tail converted Sluggo 9", a kjw conversion. Work in progress.

If we catch on em we'll let you know a props can sometimes switch fish on in conditions that
are, well, not the best.

Be interesting to see how they both fish. Keen to try some more prop baits asap myself. On surface lures too - if I get another chance this year!

Good idea with the sluggo. Wonder whether the extra weight will actually give it some more inertia and a wider movement?! - as well the obvious vibration.

Just to update you guys on this plug's action.

Tried it with various retrieves.

It has a bib, it also has a pair of tail props at the same or nearly the same angle as the bib.

So, we retrieve, the plug activates and dives only to forced to the surface again by its tail props.

The tail props kick the tail down creating a neat trial before the plug's buoyancy forces the nose back out and the tail props are
now subsurface at a new, inverted angle. Short tweeks and jerks create a boiling action whilst long sweeping retrieves create a
proper 'prop tail' vee wake that isn't, or can't be straight. Holding the nose of the plug UP as in the 'waking' style see's the plug slide around
whilst again leaving a distinct but not overpowering Vee wake.

Worth adding to the bag for originality if nothing else. A real topwater bait with a bib and a prop.
