Richmond, Calif.—The Larry Dahlberg line of River2Sea lures have been favorites of anglers ever since they hit the market several years ago. Dahlberg's unique ability to produce lures with exactly the right action has also appealed to fish of a variety of species.
For the 2014 tackle year, Dahlberg has once again shown how effective his imagination and experience can be with the advent of his Mr. Whiggley.
Based on his knowledge of truly giant fish of every species, Dahlberg knows that fish often follow, but do not strike lures. His theory became that the repetitive, mechanical swimming action of most lures did not triger a strike. His response was to make a lure that was anything but those, and Mr. Whiggley is that lure.
Mr. Whiggley is part soft plastic jerkbait, part line thru swimbait, and it can do many things based on the angler's retrieve. Speed reel it, and the lure swims erratically, twitch it or stroke it and it darts seductively while the soft body ripples and shimmies. In fact, the list of things Mr. Whiggley can do is best put in a quote by Dahlberg himself, "Here’s what you can do with Mr. Whiggley when you take him for a swim: Twitch, Stroke, Walk, Dead-stick, Glide, Rip, Slash or Burn, all on one cast."
Effective in fresh or saltwater, Mr. Whiggley can be used when fishing for Muskie, Pike, Peacock Bass, and plus-sized large and smallmouth bass as well. In the salt use it for Tarpon, Snook, Stripers, Monster Reds or anything else eating large baitfish.
Mr. Whiggley is a 10 1/2" soft plastic lure that comes two to a pack with a 4/0 3X River2Sea saltwater hook. It is available in six amazing baitfish imitating colors and has an MSRP of $18.99 per pack.
