Introducing the ALL-NEW MYDO Luck Shot Trolling. The MYDO Baitswimmer advantages applied to plastic bait trolling for gamefish. The MYDO heads impart a swimming motion to your bait – bringing it life! Tuna and other fast moving gamefish scramble for the MYtDO Luck Shot range, in it’s 4 sizes. 1.7 to 3.5 Ounces. More weight equals more depth! And with a powerful single hook the rig is designed for fishing for live bait and for healthy releases. Regular trolling swimming lures with treble hooks destroy a fish in no time. Eyes, gills, mouth… But the MYDO Luck Shot Trolling lures hook the fish in the corner or top jaw every time – making for quick and pain free hook extraction. More healthy releases. Longer lasting live bait. MYDO Luck Shot lures are also great fished on the bottom. Rockcod jump on them. Use as the sinker on your bottom fishing trace. Or just leave it dangling in midwater. The rocking motion of your boat will make it move real life-like.
MYDO Luck Shot # 2
The MYDO Luck Shot presents the 1 and a half ounce (42 grams) #2. It takes a 5 to 8 inch paddle tail or split tail, that come to life when stuck onto the MYDO Luck Shot.
Cast, troll, jig or drift these versatile lures and work more of the water column as the weight of the MYDO Luck Shot gets you there and back without fuss. The weedless hook positioning gets you in and out of structure and under the noses of ambush predator fish. And when you hook up, it’s in the corner of the mouth where minimum damage occurs to the fish for quick release or deployment as live-bait.
These heavyweights are meant for saltwater deployment and are suitably armed with 8/0 Mustad O’Shaugnessy or Kendall Round single hooks (or equivalent). Strong! And then we tested the internal wire rigging of the MYDO heads to 60kg’s!

Fishing with the MYDO Luck Shot
Queen Mackerel (Natal Snoek)
Snoek jump on the MYDO Luck Shots. Rigged with smaller white and other other lightly tinted and translucent paddletails and jerk baits that come to life when trolled, casted, jigged or drifted! Speeds of 6 to 9 knots and higher mean you can chase the shoals around and head them off. Luck Shots and Stripswimmers are great for when the Snoek are on the boil, you can cast to the fish, or leave the lure out the back. Single hooks mean solid hookups in the top jaw for easy and healthy release.
King Mackerel (‘couta)
‘Couta love the fast swimming action of the MYDO Luck Shot. Using wire does not inhibit the action.
Skipjack and Yellowfin Tuna
The versatility of the MYDO Luck Shot also means you can just leave it out there on the drift. The rolling motion of the boat is transmitted to the lure – resulting in a confused, jerky and erratic movement by the Luck Shot.
Using the Luck Shot as a sinker when bottomfishing is a heap of fun. It’s like finally putting some functionality into something so singularly deployed before. Now all of a sudden, your sinker is a lure! Works great for rockcod, as you can see from the product gallery.
