This topwater lure is designed to mimic shad whether they are fleeing or skipping across the top on their own. With its unique actions and characteristics, the G-Splash produces several efficient, fish-catching techniques. The cup of the lip gives the G-Splash the ability to throw water out in front while being fished really fast. This topwater plug is not intended to 'walk the dog' like other Lucky Craft topwaters such as the Sammy and the Gunfish. Rather it should be popped down, similar to a jerkbait action, but not as long. Create a pop, pop action while twitching the rod straight down so that it makes the water spray out in front of the bait. The extra large cup of the G-Splash makes an incredible splash that is able to call a monster fish up from deep water - keep up a constant twitch-and-pause action during the retrieve.
