Our freshwater version of the lure, the OG1 (US Patent #D779,028), imitates a stunned, or wounded, bait fish. 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 action, the following video shows the 1.8" fluoro-green/chartreuse lure running at full, and then, half speeds:
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, 2.13 inch, and the the 2.44 inch, lures are rigged with size 6 treble hooks; and the 2.8 inch with size 4. We use 12lb leader for the smaller sizes and 15lb leader for the 2.8 inch lure.
We also rig the 1.8 inch, 2.13 inch and 2.44 inch lures for kokanee--with tandem, size 4, hooks.
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. (They can be fished with, or without, a flasher or dodger.)
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.
