The Plunger is another new lure head from the JB Signature Lures collection. As the name suggests this is a “plunger” style lure but our keel weighted version is slightly shorter and blunter than more traditional plungers, which makes it push more water. Another difference is the profile, it’s asymmetrical not cylindrical like traditional lures. This profile gives the Plunger larger shoulders towards the front of the lure which then tapers down towards the tail, giving the lure a nice enticing shimmy to its action.
The Plunger is a great all-rounder with a nice easy running consistent action and great stability, with an ideal trolling speed of 7-10 knots in most sea conditions. Awesome lure on the long corner or long rigger, but runs great anywhere in the spread. The hole at the back of the lure head has been enlarged and acts as a hook lock. Just wrap some tape around the crimp and pull it into the hole locking the hook in position. Plungers run best when rigged with a single hook. They come in both a 9" Medium size & 12" Large size with fish head inserts.
This particular head is the Large size with 12" skirt saddles. This color scheme comes in a "Mackerel" theme with an iridescent green/blue back, gold stripe, and silver body with Mackerel stripes along the back. The entire lure head has a beautiful rainbow-iridescent hue to it - Photos cannot do any of these lures justice.
Lure maker Dave Harrison personally signed the lure at the bottom of the insert.
