Hi guys, I was browsing in a local tackle shop and came across this lure
Tackle house contact node 130f 130mm 18g no 19. It's a minnow type lure in a nice pollack colour, dives about 1/2 m--1m. Anybody got one and how do they rate them.

Andy Morrow on here has one im sure he said they dont have too much action in calm water but they come alive in choppy water.

When I tried one I too found it pretty lifeless, but since then I have realised sinking lures work better if you actually let them sink, so maybe they are worth another try one day....

yeah, I've got one. Better In choppy condItIons or a bIt of a swell runnIng. Had loads of fIsh on It and some good follows too. Cast well and has a qualIty fInIsh on It. I personally thInk It dIves deeper than the stated depth. Well worth a go!

thanks for your comments chaps, I hope it fishes as good as it looks, it stays in the box while the no fish period is on but I will report back how it fishes.

Brilliant observation m8.

Completely right of course. Used like a Jig OTD, sinking plugs open up a huge world of fishing to explore.
