Got-Cha™ Plugs are excellent for bluefish, Spanish mackerel, trout and other fish that feed on small bait fish. When fishing from piers and bridges, reel the Got-Cha Plugs in using short, sharp jerks on the rod to create a deadly swimming action. Got-Cha Plugs are also popular with anglers jigging for blues and trout from boat.

Got-Cha™ Plug - 100/200 Series 4.9 5 30 30
The "Go to Lure"! I have been using the Gotcha Plugs for over twenty years. They can't be beat for Spanish Mackeral, Blues, and even Speckled Trout from time to time. It is not a lazy man's lure - you have to work this lure and crank it quickly through the water. Keep in mind that this lure sports two treble hooks, so a good pair of needle nosed pliers is a necessity for removing the fish. Always use about a one foot long peice of monofiliment shock leader - the blues and the spanish will do a number on the line just forward of the lure. Seems that the Spanish don't want anything but this lure. September 7, 2012
Awesome Used this for the first time on the Rt 50 bridge in ocean city, md. Cast and then start walking the dog. The bluefish love it. Ended up catching a 33" blue... one inch from being an award winner. The paint does chip off especially when you have a monster blue chewin on it. I believe the fact that everyone around me was using the gotcha plug is a testament to how good and popular this lure is. Conditions, low tide, 4:30 am. Also, when you do land a fish definitely use pliers cause the gotcha plug hooks are sharp and u don't want a thrashing fish to hook ya. July 8, 2012
Awesome!!! Must Have!!! A friend and myself tried this lure out on a pier in Ft Lauderdale about a week ago, and the results were simple amazing. The picture speaks for itself. Go out and grab a few of these. We were using the white/red head and the yellow/silver. November 7, 2011
awesome this thing is the bluefish killer off of piers and docks great casting distance with a 6'6 rod and a jerkbait retrieval. May 25, 2011

The Gotcha Plug is more of a saltwater lure for Bluefish and Spanish Mackeral. It was never intended for freshwater fishing.

How do you fish this?

Details: 
I often fish on piers, is this a cast and retrieve-type lure? Will it sink deep enough despite me being elevated on a pier?

Thanks!

A: 
The Gotcha Plug is a cast and retrieve type lure. It achieves its action by continous jerking of the rod tip while retrieving the lure at a fast pace. It is a floating lure but will run just under the surface while being retrieved. I have used it off of the fishing piers for over twenty years - it has no equal for Spanish Mackeral and Blue Fish.

A: 
When i fished it off a bridge the current was strong so I just dropped it down and let it drift out. It definitely goes deep, and will rise once its about 15 feet away.

A: 
Has a fast sink rate, it's not a simple retrieve as in just reeling. Cast, let it sink to the desired depth and then repeatedly jerk it as you reel it back to you. Moderately fast for blues and very very fast for spanish. Shouldn't have any problem getting to the bottom, the head is all lead and the body is a plastic tube. You can cast it a freakin mile.

A: 
im not an expert but i have fished on piers quite often and have seen a lot of fish caught on the gotcha plug by just casting as far out as you can and just jerk it repeatedly it mimics a baitfish slashing through the water.

A: 
yes this is a cast and retrieve lure and depending on the size of your plug and pound test you use will decide how deep it will sink.

A: 
Don't listen to that, the gotcha will definitely catch more blues than a sting silver. A buddy of mine went with me to the Bogue Inlet Pier here in NC last spring and in one hour we caught approximately 40 blues, kept 16 (we split them 8 and 8). All were big enough to keep, as in you could get plenty of meat off them, we just figured we would only keep what we would eat that night with the family. I have never caught more blues or spanish on any other lure than this one. The trebles are no problem to remove, I don't know why someone would think they are. You should be using pliers to remove a hook from a toothy fish anyway, not your bare fingers. If you've ever removed a treble hook from a fish using pliers (i'm guessing you have like every other fisherman) then you will have no problem using this lure to catch fish and removing the hooks from the fish, buy it, it's the best purchase you'll make. All I take when I go to the pier is a plano box, inside that box is a spool of spare 30 flouro or mono leader, about 6 half oz gotchas in assorted colors and about 3 sting silvers. I use the sting silvers for grey trout, the gotchas are for everything else.

Red head/white body and green head/white body have caught the most blues in my experience. The small ones that were mentioned are good too, but better suited for the normal dock and inshore boat than the pier. Cast and jerk back repeatedly, moderately fast for blues, very very fast for spanish. Don't stop till you get bit, there is no pause when fishing these from a pier.

A: 
I have caught many blues as well as other fish (snook, jacks, flounder, stingrays, ladyfish) on the Gotcha. Hands down my favorite lure for inshore saltwater from a dock or pier. I have had the most success here on Florida's East coast with the smaller version that has the single hook in the back with the bucktail teaser like model 38-240-984-02 or 38-240-984-04, but the larger version is still ok especially if you are after large fish. IMO, the silver or chome body with either the red head or yellow head is best, but I have friends who have great success with the yellow or white body Gotchas. Personally, I have not had an issue removing the Gotcha from any fish (including blues) and I catch and release everything. I have caught more saltwater fish on this lure than any other lure.

A: 
I would never use a plug like that on blue fish as the multiple treble hooks would cause you a lot of trouble trying to remove it from a blue fish mouth. as you know they have sharp teeth and they like to use them.
I would use a single hook say i diamond jig
or cast master with a bucktail as these types of lures are much easier to remove.
good luck and tight lines.
