Megabass Dying Fish

Found this new offering from Megabass, the Dying Fish.

I ordered a few and are they hard to find in the colours I liked, cant wait till the surface season comes again.

Have a look at the videos, looks interesting.

Awesome! So depending on which of the 3 tow points you use the lure can go straight, left or right. I can already see these smashing the bass, being able to cast next to a snag and work the lure into it, under low overhanging branches etc. Where did you order them from? Will order acouple myself.

It's gonna be wicked in snags. Lots of vibration for only a small amount of displacement.

They look cool, getting any sort of distance on a cast may be an issue, but cool none the less.

Because it doesn't matter which tow point you use unless you can guarantee it to land with its head pointing in a certain direction. If you want it to swim into a snag and cant control the entire flight and landing, it would swim away from the snag 50% of the time.

I think you will find they are weighted so as to settle hooks down, the lure will always pivot off the tow point.

If the lure lands the wrong way it will swing as the lure is retrieved. What happens when a hardbody lands backwards, it can happen?

I've got one. Casts like a 6' fence pailing, but works well across the surface...

Works well in freshwater but certainly a better life in saltwater situations.

Yeah with the tow points being where they are they'd have to helicopter in flight.
Why would they work better in saltwater ? .. i've got a few to try on EP in salt and fresh
