The GT Ice Cream Surface Plug has been developed in South Africa with the original white models made from teflon. They are a very unique lure with top quality fittings to ensure maximum strength and better hook up rates. Don’t let their basic design and finish fool you, these surface plugs are truly dynamite on such species like GT, Tuna, Kingfish and just about all predatory reef species.
They have been specifically weighted for distance casting and if allowed to sink, they can pull fish up from very deep. They are made with super strong, straight through stainless steel wire and they will not chip or crack; even when thrown against rocks. These lures have proven themselves, especially in Australia.
These are a very simple lure to use, just a nice steady retrieve with the lure skipping fast across the surface will tempt any predatory fish into a spectacular, agressive attack; which can excite the angler like nothing else. It has been proven that the best hook rigging is with an assist hook hanging from the tail end. It may look questionable, but it has been proven that this is the best method of rigging with an extremely high hook up rate. Because of the shape, weight and design of these lures, they cast like a bullet and are great to use in extremely windy conditions. These GT Ice Cream lures are an absolute must have for all anglers.
These larger lures in 3, 4 & 5 oz are absolutely brilliant on all large predatory reef species and pelagics and are extremely popular with anglers chasing big GT’s, Tuna etc. The Needle Nose is designed for long cast and fast retrieves, but a slow retrieve with a high rod produces a strong side-to-side nose action, which is ideal in calmer conditions.
