This is a real favourite of ours.
The Terrif DC9 Bullet is a lure specifically designed for the shallows. The truncated lip makes it possible to cover an approximate 40cm range of depth consistently, regardless of the speed of your retrieve.
In addition to the famed castability of the DC9, it is a great ‘search bait’ to efficiently explore an extensive area and find where the fish are feeding. Over unfamiliar terrain, its sinking depth and controlability ensure that the Bullet will return where other lures could not bypass the snags.
Here are some ways an angler can work the Bullet:
- Technique 1: Simply Reeling In. The DC9 has an action pattern similar to other classic shallow diving minnows. It has the water resistance that lipless models lack and is an easy-to-use model for beginners. It is most productive when naturally drifting in the current, and it will maintain its range even when swimming against the current.
- Technique 2: High Speed Retrieving. With a well-balanced body design and magnet-assisted weight system, the DC9 responds well even when reeled in at high speed. We have made it possible for anglers to retrieve at speeds where lipped minnows tend to dive too deep and lipless minnows jump out of the water’s surface.
- Technique 3: Twitching. With some active rod tip work, it is possible for anglers to make the lure mimic ‘darting’ movements. This is usually the most productive method in shallow areas during day time.
