The target for the Feed Shallow is Sea Bass in shallow water. The main action of this lure is the natural head-roll, which is different from the rolling action performed by conventional shallow minnows. The sides of the lure’s body are designed to be as flat as possible and it has a flashy, iridescent appearance that enhances its appeal. It performs energetically just below the surface water 5-30cm deep, regardless of whether the area is surf, tidal flat, river mouth or rocky shore.
A classic among Bass anglers – ideal for fishing over shallow, rocky reefs and gullies.

The Sasuke 140mm weighs 18g and will typically dive to between 60cm and 100cm although the lure will dive deeper in strong current and can be fished closer to the surface with the rod held high. This lure has arrived in the UK with huge potential
Great lures for rougher conditions – casts well into head wind and digs into big seas, especially the 140mm version which presents a larger bait for a hungry predator.

Illex Jockie 120
This is a unique development in jerkbait design capable of tempting predators on and just below the surface. A sub-surface minnow style lure designed with an innovative stopped position which hangs in the water like no other stickbait. The hollow throat section claps the surface creating that extra noise attraction. A killer rolling action on the retrieve is coupled with rapid decompressions on each lunge to create a lure that is fantastic worked over weed beds skimming the surface like a distressed prey fish. And let’s not forget the extra adrenaline rush you get when you see a big fish attacking a surface lure!
IMA SF 125
The Komomo SF-125 casts like an arrow due to an internal weight shifting system. The Komomo doesn’t have a protruding diving lip giving it a really natural appearance without additional casting resistance. Described as a ‘super shallow minnow’, when retrieved the lure will work in the top 30cm. Raise your rod high and crank slowly and the lure will sit just beneath the surface film with a tight rolling and wobbling action. When the lure is stopped it will sit almost vertical in the water and float slowly to the surface. Equipped with Owner ST-46 hooks, the lure is 125mm long, weighs around 16g and features a nearly indestructible ABS plastic body.
Casts well, runs nice and shallow and has a lovely side to side wiggle on a steady retrieve – this IMA lure needs no bigging up it simply works!
