  • Effective in freshwater or saltwater
  • Erratic injured baitfish action
  • Entices predators
The lure that started the soft stick bait revolution, Lunker City's Slug-Go is precisely balanced to produce the erratic, ''injured baitfish'' action that draws instinctive strikes from a wide variety of predatory fish. It's this unbeatable action that makes the versatile Slug-Go effective in both freshwater and saltwater.
Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 64 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Always works Got the 4-1/2" versions (Rainbow Trout and Arkansas Shiner colors) now and plan to get the 6" later this summer. They always worked for me. The smaller 3" and 4" versions on 4, 5, and 6 lb. test are killer in California clear water lakes, while the larger bulkier sizes (on any size line) are outstanding in the shallow water lillypad lakes here in Central Florida. May 10, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome bait This was the first lure of this type on the market and still the best. The random action is irresistable for any bass. I have caught more bass over 10 lbs. on these lures than any other bait except live shiners. Use a soft rod such as a Fenwick 5 power. Allow bait to sink to the desired depth and give a short but sharp twitch. Repeat until you see or feel a bass. Set the hook as quickly as possible or you might have the hook deep in the guts of your fish. With some practice you can skip under docks and limbs for exciting action. April 27, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 Easy to fish and good in weeds too Have been fishing the 6" alewife version of this lure on 3/0 - 5/0 worm hooks with some success - it's a bit of a default choice for me if I'm not sure what's going on. Hook-point coming up through the first "notch" in the slug seems to be about right, but make sure you bury the eye (and crimp if you are using wire) in the slug and tuck the hook point lightly into its back for best performance in weed. This may affect your choice of hook size. I also put one of the smallest bass-pro glass worm rattles in the tail section; not sure if that helps, but it doesn't appear to hinder. It sinks quite slowly and I fish it by casting out waiting a minute or so to let it sink then retrieving very slowly, punctuated with a couple of quick slashes before waiting to let it sink again. When you slash it, it shoots up in the water like a panicked fish and then tail-slides back down like an injured one. If you rig it up correctly you can fish it through heavy weed -- I find your swivel normally catches more weed than the lure. For a soft bait it is durable, the thing I find that goes first is the top of the slug where you tuck the hook-point in, but that's not much of a problem at all if you're not fishing in weed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by slug-go these slugs consistently caught nice bass every day for 2 weeks in the adk. mountains of ny. other plastic bait caught fish as well, but not as often as the slug! August 21, 2011

Weight or no?

Details: 
I'm a newbie bass guy (there are no bass where I live) and making a trip. I picked up some 6" black Slug-gos and 4/0 hooks. But I am unclear as to whether I need a weight, like a bullet weight for texas rigging?

A: 
Either way they work. It depends on what the fish are doing. Unweighted I like to cast and give it a quick jerk as soon as it hits the water. As it drops it usually gets tagged.

A: 
on spinning tackle I have good luck just rigging weedless and not adding any weight. if you are using baitcasting tackle a weight might be a good idea?

A: 
Depends how you are fishing it, they are great weightless you just cast them out let them sink down a couple feet and bring it back to the boat with a twitching motion. The Slug-go is one of the original softl plastic jerkabaits, anything you read about fishing other soft jerkbaits (such as the now popular "flukes") will also apply to the slug-go.

A: 
Both! some times using weight is the way to go. Other times you need to go with no weight . The wind will help you make that choice. If you are going to texas rig it then go with as little weight as you can! But try wacky rigging this worm.

Staff Answer
A: 
When selecting lure colors for freshwater fishing there are two factors to keep in mind. The first is to "match-the-hatch". To do so, you will need to find baits that mimic color of the prey of the species that you are targeting closely. For instance, when fishing in a large lake with heavy amounts of shad, a silver, black, white, or blue based color (depending on the color of the shad in the lake) would be appropriate to use. If fishing a pond where the main forage may be small bream (such as bluegill) try using a chartruse and white or firetiger color.

As well, base the colors that you are using on the water situation that you are facing. If fishing in clear water, lures that have a more subtle or natural color would be great, as this will not spook fish. However, if fishing in water that may be murky or muddy, try using a lure with a lot of flash so that the lure can allow the fish to hone in on it.

A: 
The Slug-go is a true jerk bait and works best with a twitch and pause technique. The Senko is a drop bait that is best used by letting the lure just flutter down naturally after it lands on the water. With both lures it is best to use on a semi-slack line. Watch the line for a tell-tale tick or move to the right or left. Then reel up the slack and set the hook firmly.

A: 
If could take only one bait fishing ...give me a bag of Slugos!
I fish them with just a light off-set hook, no rigging of any kind is needed. And the lighter the line the better the action. I use the 3 and 4 inch for bass and the 3" for trout.

I've had the best luck with the rainbow,
white and black. (When you can find the black.)

Cast them out and let them sink slowly, then retreive with light taps and let them fall again. They look just like a dying bait fish and bass will kill them!

I have found that they out perform any and all other soft jerk baits and most worms.

A: 
let me just start off sayin that they are both great baits in my tackle box. but, just gotta tell u that the senko is not a jerk bait. u do not jerk it while reeling in. this bait is meant to be fished slow. u let it fall slowly to the bottom. then lift up slowly and let it drop back down. great bait. senko is a jerk bait and has pretty good action. but, do not buy the 3 inch ones, i made that mistake. they are too small to even texas rig.

A: 
I would have to say that the Slug-go has better action. The cut top design allows it to dart wildly about. I also want to point out here, that the Senko had a terrible time staying on my hook. I had an easier time using the Slug-go. This is not to say that the Senko is bad. I still caught fish with it. Just not as many. I was using either Stren 65lb braid or 30lb braid with it.
I'm probably going to try it with fluorocarbon as well to see if I can enhance the action. I hope this helps.

A: 
3/0 - 5/0 worm hook, depending on shank length. You want the hook point coming up through the first notch in the slug. Be sure to bury the eye, knot, and crimp if on wire in the slug if you are fishing in weed. May mean a smaller, wider gape hook for wire traces.

A: 
Slug-Go makes a 4/0 & 5/0 for this. If you check their website, you will see it. The packaging also has the proper hook to use. According to that, a 5/0 is also a great hook to use on this. Right now, since I am out of the Slug-Go hooks, I am using a Gamakatsu 5/0 & the bait works very similar. I would recommend using the Slug-Go version first though. It works the best.
