Why The Bottom Magic 55mm Is The One Lure For Every Fisho
If you could only have ONE lure to catch as many fish as possible in as many different locations AND you didn’t want to work too hard at it, our easy choice is the Bottom Magic 55mm Lure. Its small size, fast sink rate and unique action combine to make this lure an irresistible meal.
This little lure has caught a staggering number of species right around the country, everything from trout down south to barra up north and almost everything else in between, it’s brilliant to say the least. One of the best things about the Bottom Magic is how easy it is to use…
How To Use It
Simply twitching the lure off the bottom anywhere up to about 60cm every 1-2 seconds to make it ‘hop’ along and mimic a small bottom feeding baitfish has proven by far the easiest and most productive technique for us. Even a slight pause here and there can help with more timid species. Like I said it’s been the best technique for us but others have work as well, so don’t be afraid to try your own techniques as well!
If you have this lure, you’re always a great chance of catching a fish.
Our best success has come from rigging these lures with assist hooks like we’ve been doing with most of our lures lately, it’s increased our hook-up rate and decreased our losses once hooked because the fish (especially flathead) have no solid metal to lever the hook out with when they shake their head, rather they have flexible chord. The Ocean’s Legacy Micro Assist hooks in size 6 are what we’ve been using, we use one set (two hooks) at a time and hang them off either the back or the middle eyelets, but off the back the fish are kept clear of the leader so leader abrasion is very rare.
The Bottom Magic Saltwater Lure range come rigged with two double hooks with the barbs pointing upwards, which are really good especially around weedy/snaggy areas as the hooks tend to push over structure much more then standard singles or trebles. So if you aren't keen on trying the more unconventional method of using assist hooks, just leave these be.
P.S. although all we’ve tried have worked, our most successful colours have been PDZ (amber clear colour) in the Bottom Magic Saltwater version and YSN (light tan colour with reddish bottom) in the standard Bottom Magic 55mm range.
