Halco Skim Stick
The Skim Stick from Halco is a unique concept for all blue water anglers. The Skim Stick fits between a stick bait and a skittering popper and imitates a long, narrow profiled baitfish that appears to be fleeing on the surface from any hungry predators in the vicinity. Designed for long casting and slow trolling applications, the Halco Skim Stick skitters frantically across the surface with a simple winding technique. Work it with a slight twitching action for a walk-the-dog-style retrieve. The Skim Stick is ideal for mackerel, wahoo, tuna and many trevally species. Features include premium Japanese Decoy 5/0 inline single hooks for superior hook setting and holding ability.

Good freshwater bait, tooI am fishing the Skim Stick for muskies here in MN. It has a distinctive action somewhere between a Spook and a Jitterbug, but more subtle than both. Give some serious thought to the weight leader you are using as well as the material. I recommend light piano wire since it enhances the width of the walk a bit but won't sink the bait. Heavy fluorocarbon with work but dampens some the action. You can compensate somewhat by adding more action with the rod.
This lure works when the fish are shallow even when more traditional baits do no.
