Modifications for Surface Swimmers:

     In the image above, the left side image of the Large Swimmer has had the front eye loop bent up. This will make the lure dive deeper to reach those deeper fish and dig in harder for those heavy surf or sea conditions. Also, a snap has been added to the running line leader, which allows the lure to swim more freely. This can be applied to all of our metal-lipped swimming lures.

Fishing Surface Swimmers:

     After the cast, carefully retrieve the lure with a steady slow retrieve just fast enough to cause the lure to swim. You will need to adjust your retrieve as you fish the lure through different types of water. To swim the plug over the crest of a wave you will need to raise your rod tip as you reel to pick up the slack line to keep the lure swimming and prevent it from tumbling down the front of the wave. Adjusting the eye of the lure will allow you to tune the lure. Bending the eye of the lure down will cause a more consistent surface swim, while bending the eye of the lure up will cause the lure to be retrieved sub surface. An occasional twitch of the rod tip causing a splash can add to your success. Swimmers are best used over structures where game fish lie in wait to attack unsuspecting prey. Casting swimmers into boulder fields at first light is a great way to get a tug on your line.

Conditions to fish Surface Swimmers:

     Little to light surf with white water are the ideal conditions for this lure. Larger surf will cause you to lose contact with the lure and cause an erratic uncontrolled retrieve. Larger swimmers are preferred when large bodied bait fish are present (bunker/herring).
