Product Description

Strategic Angler Espada Sinking


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 Sinking sits vertically while traversing the water column, with a tail down orientation.  The Espada Sinking descends about a foot a second just like a dead bait fish and a faster sink can be achieved by using heavier or larger tail hooks.  Jigging the lure will make it come alive underwater with an erratic darting action; pausing it will make the lure sink tail first.  Rhythmic jigging of the lure will make it dart left and right, giving it an underwater walk-the-dog presentation.  A subsurface rolling action can be achieved by casting the lure out and letting it sink to the desired depth.  Quickly sweep the rod left to right (or up) to make the lure dart and roll underwater, creating a side flash like a fleeing baitfish.
