Our floating stickbait, Glide Dog 100 was born from the fact that some of predator fish in freshwater (pike, perch, black-bass) and in the sea (sea bass, mackerel) often refuse to use surface lures retrieved at high speed, probably due to the education of the fish in WTD (Walking the dog). So we offer you the Glide Dog 100 in its final version, a surface lure dedicated to slide fishing. Its precise swimming action allows you to make the slowest retrieves in long slides with a short, dry pull of the rod tip to start, or not, a pause to let the fish get closer to the prey. It is a complementary lure to the current stickbaits on the market to cope with difficult fishing conditions.
To get the most out of the Glide Dog 100, we work the lure with the rod tip just above the surface of the water which allows it to be effective in 95% of the situations encountered where a WTD (walking the dog) cadence is sometimes too robotic and is identified as such by pike, black bass, perch or sea bass.
On a pause, the lure remains in an almost horizontal position which imitates to perfection a sick or dying fish. The Glide Dog offers a medium to crystal clear sound thanks to the glass beads it contains in addition to the balancing weight.
Very comfortable with different amplitudes of twitch, it also supports most retrieve speeds: slow, moderate and fast. Its walking the dog action is very attractive at slow to medium speeds, the action for which it was developed. These 3 retrieve cadences allow it to adapt to the different water temperatures / activity of the targeted species on the fishing zone.
The Glide Dog is excellent to make these lateral slides, wider than those of a walking the dog, we call it medium slide, with or without pause. A series of medium speed slides are ideal to decide big black bass and nice pike, often indecisive on a too fast WTD, which they have become used to spot.
This WINTER SHAD hard lure is a matte base that we have developed especially for fishing in clear water or at the beginning of the season when the bait fish have a lighter color.
So the best retrieve that we recommend with the Glide Dog 100 is composed of medium or short glides with pauses. As it moves, it shows its sides and ejects bubbles from its tail, just like a fish caught in a panic or chased on the surface.
It is the ideal lure for hesitant / educated fish on difficult lakes where precision is required. Its strength lies in its ability to adapt to slow fishing, which makes it the first choice for prospecting small areas where the angler will not be given a sloppy presentation or a second chance.
Finally, on the sea side it is a first choice for sea bass, especially in calm weather where it differs from its competition by a high-pitched sound recognized as the most incisive on the aggressiveness stimulus of sea bass.
