12 Fathom has a great arsenal of lures with options that are powerful in various situations. A lure to always have with you, the SlamR is offered in 5-inch and 6-inch options. The design of the lure is long and sleek with a forked tail, with a groove in the body making weedless rigging easy. This is a lure that is “Aqua Dynamic”. There is the term aerodynamic that describes something that flies through the air smoothly. Aqua Dynamic, the SlamR can be hovered in the water or can be eased down into the strike zone by slowing the retrieve or by dropping the rod tip. This action also helps you to work this lure in shallower water without hanging up in the seagrass.
If you think that your quarry is predominantly eating shrimp, the five-inch SlamR is the perfect lure to be using. The lure sliding right above the bottom resembles the gliding motion of a mobile shrimp. Throughout many of the winter months in Florida, the SlamR will be a top bait for that very reason: The fish are eating shrimp, and this lure resembles a shrimp. But fish will eat shrimp year-round, so always have the SlamR ready! If you have ever thrown a live eel to a cobia- Try throwing the 6-inch SlamR at them instead. The 6-inch lure will also entice the very biggest snook, trout, redfish, flounder and black drum
This lure can be rigged and worked in a variety of ways depending on the situation and species being targeted. In very shallow water, use this lure with a 1/16 to 1/8-ounce jighead. Effective when worked “slow and smooth” you can also move this lure with some rod tip “jabs” to make it dart erratically. While the SlamR is a great “Cruiser” bait moved at the steady pace, it is also a great “jerkbait” and moves enticingly with extra twitches or jigging the lure.
