Concept and Design
Stria 95 very innovative sinking minnow. Despite its pronounced lip which is not a countdown, it is a lure capable of going down deep and to be used in particularly high positions: actually its action range goes from about one meter to a few inches under its surface depending on how it is used. The lip has the purpose of resisting strong currents well, quality that makes it perfect to stand up in the midst of the most difficult foams and to the power of estuaries flow. Its peculiarity that distinguishes it from all other minnows in commerce is the movement, indeed the shape, with the “high forehead and narrow hips”, forces it to a rolling extremely accentuated, accompanied by a tight and regular wobbling. This rolling of 180° about and the resulting strong vibration, are something that fish, more and more “experts” in lures, are not certainly accustomed to.
The shape and the movement also are authors of a considerable visual appeal: its sparkle is an ace in addition. It is impossible not to notice it even in the midst over dense foam!
All the qualities described above makes it an excellent sea bass lure, but in tests proved to be versatile for dentex, barracuda and bluefish and surprisingly proved to be a winner even with bonito.
Slow Retrieve ): wide rolling & light wobbling
Regular Retrieve: wide rolling & wobbling
Fast Retrieve: wide rolling & wobbling
Jerking: To stimulate the fish aggressiveness you may want to give strong accelerations with the rod in single or multiple sequence, so as to force the lure to make large skids. Intersperse jerks with pause and/or variable recovery.
