Our freshwater version of the lure (US Patent #D779,028) imitates a stunned, or wounded, baitfish. In addition to its unique action, another design element is the longitudinal channel that allows the lure to slip out of the way after a fish hits. Once this happens, you have a direct connection from your rod to the hook--making it more difficult for the fish to come off of your line.
To help give you a sense of the lure's results and to see underwater footage of its action, take a look at this video.
We sell our freshwater version of the OG1 in four sizes:
All four sizes are rigged with treble hooks attached by a split ring to a swivel. The 1.8 inch lure is rigged with a size 10 hook, the 2.44 inch with a size 6, and the 2.8 inch with a size 4.
We use 10lb leader for the three smaller sizes and 20lb leader for the 2.8 inch lure.
One critical point: In order to obtain the correct action, your Old Goat lure needs to be fished behind weight, a downrigger, or a planer.
While the lure is designed primarily for trolling, you can also cast it by attaching one or more split shot 12 to 18 inches above the lure.
