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.
Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by great lure used the got-cha lure in Ft Lauderdale Fla. and in Oak Island NC The blues love them and also caught some yellow jacks with this lure. My wife caught a pompano that weighed 1.5 lbs.. So easy to use,,,reel and jerk,,,,that simple.. August 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Blue fish Great items...fast service! too many items to choose from and that is good for me. July 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent plug for spanish mackerel By far the best plug for spanish mackerel,caught my limit(15) in 2 hrs! May 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Inshore Killer!!! Two years ago we visited north carolina and asked for recemendations these came up. Unfortantly the water current changed and pushed the fish south so we were stuck with like 5 of these. Last summer we fished early around 5 am and tested these. They are killers. We fished of a jetty in the cape cod bay and ended up with a few 18 in bluefish and multiple 20 in stripers. The only problem we had was that eventually they do break and don't tie directly to the line I lost 3 because of blues bitting through the braid. HIGHLY RECEMMENED!!!!!!!!! February 23, 2013

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.

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.
