Sebile Koolie Minnow 118FT

I have recently acquired a Sebile Koolie Minnow 118FT from a friend.

What am I supposed to do with it (obvious answers will be ignored!!). :lol:

I can't seem to find very much info on it but despite it's huge bib it will apparently dive to about 5ft (I notice some of Sebiles range claims to dive to 58ft on a fast retreive!!)

Is it a jerk or a pull it in? Suspending? I assume floating from the FT bit printed on it's undercarriage.

The Koolie Minnow is a great lure, with a fantastic action, problem is they are quite fragile, the oil tends to leak out and the bib snaps off if you hit a rock. Apart from that they are great, some french anglers swear by them. When I have used them in the past just a straight retrieve seemed ok, but of course stopping and twitching is so common now it seems compulsary.
There are a few versions, different depths, not sure which one you have mate
They are sound mate, you will catch on it without a doubt. Mine got smashed on a big wrasse, didnt land the wrasse but it was 5lb easy, dam thing straightened a treble at my feet and the lure flew past me and smashed on a rock.
