Product Description

Strategic Angler Espada Floating


The Espada series is a true-to-life sized lure inspired from Pacific Saury and Ballyhoo. It features a smooth, streamlined body with a 2.4 mm wiring system, capable of handling any fish of your dreams.  The Espada Floating sits tail down on the water’s surface at rest.   To create a surface side to side glide, slowly pump the rod tip down rhythmically; it may take a few tries to get the action right and may depend on wind and current conditions.  Don’t forget to pause in between, as most strikes occur at this time; the head will also pop out during the pause.  To achieve a longer surface glide, switch to a lighter belly hook or just use a tail hook.  Slowly sweeping the rod tip left to right (or down) will make the lure dive followed by a bubble trail.   This audible commotion entices strikes at anytime, so always keep your eye on the lure as it pops out of the water.
