“DARK SLEEPER” small swimbait which has hidden hook -Megabass-
During long time, Megabass does not have great success on new lures.
After eel-shaped bigbate EELER, Megabass did not launch brilliant lures.
This is new success product from Megabass.
This early summer , Megabass launched this swimbait.
Since that day, lot of anglers and fishing magazine are talking good about this new swimbait.
Evaluation of “DARK SLEEPER” is very good.
As upper picture, it`s imitating goby type of fish which inhabits the bottom of the lakes or rivers.
The hook is hidden between dorsal fin. So it has very good weedless performance for cast obstacle and covered area.
On this video, you can see the action of this swimbait.
You can make it swim creeping on bottom as real goby.
The another day, I already tried this swimbait in lake. Fortunately I could get nice fish with this lure.

Comparison with another lures.
With POP-X. You can notice that “DARK SLEEPER” has compact body.
With master piece Gary Yamamoto 4 inch Grub.
On the official video, he was retrieving it fast in middle range and bottom.
But according to my friends and another anglers, blog…the best way to use it in super slow retrieve on the bottom. Dragging it slowly keeping contact to bottom, imitating goby.
I also fished with this way, super slow retrieve on the bottom.
Pause → Shake → Pauss → drag along the bottom → Pause
Like this way, I fished bass.
But still it`s not enough experience to understand this lure.
I will keep using it and when I notice some new thing, I will write about it on this page.
