Fishing with the MYDO Luck Shot
Fishing with the MYDO Luck Shot.
The MYDO Baitswimmer’s many talents are easily adapted to many fishing applications and baits.
Including fishing with plastics.
Plastics have come a long way and are now available looking as real and flashy as a live bait. Juicing with a bit of bait increases strike rates tremendously – but how best to fish a decent plastic?
The MYDO Luck Shot.
This incredibly successful lure is fundamentally a bait swimmer with a hook, and a plastic rigged thereon.
This gives anglers an amazingly versatile lure.
Just drop it over the side of the boat and you are already in with a chance. Our first fish on the MYDO Luck Shot was caught this way. My Dad just let the lure out on the drift and bang, the SardaSarda pictured below took the bait.
Catching live bait whilst fishing for marlin is always a challenge. Lures with trebles or double hook rigs damage the bait beyond repair. Often they hook the fish in the bottom jaw, as the hooks hang down below the lure. No live bait survives this. Treble hooked lures also often turn during the fight, wrecking gills and eyes simultaneously. Blood everywhere.
Not with the MYDO.
The huge single hook faces upwards and almost every time hooks the fish firmly in the corner of the jaw.
And then there is the speed! You can drag MYDO Luck Shot whilst dragging konas. 12 Knots is easy and the plastic just stays on due to the hook shaped pin that holds the plastic in place perfectly.
Fish with split tails or paddle tails – all sizes, even the huge stuff!
