Fresh out of the Land of the Long White Cloud the Shimano Bottom Ship Lures are taking a hold on the slow jigging scene here in Aus. Our Kiwi brothers and sisters have let the cat out of the bag, and just one look at these Lures and you can tell they’ll be a blue water boon. Available in a few weights and a few strike enticing colours, including luminous options (listing is only for 1 lure – choose it & options when ordering), the Shimano Bottom Ship Lures are going to be devastating on our reef and pelagic species. They just won’t be able to leave them alone. Fast sinking with incredible action, the Shimano Bottom ship Lures are going to be struck hard by predators in every part of the water column.
The key to their success is the rear weighted design that gets them into the strike zone fast. Slow jigging brings out the best in their colour and movement. Two in-line chemically sharpened hooks ensure strikes turn to hook ups. Hook ups turn to catches as the Dyneema chord keeps your fish connected. The squid style skirts are replaceable and also allows for mix and match colour combinations.
