Poseidon Medusa Wobble 12.5"
Head weight of this lure head is around 130 grams mark. Keel weighted and rough water brilliant. There is no blow out on the troll with this model.
The deep cup face and weighting allows the lure to cycle beautifully without surface skip.
Underwater cameras show the Medusa Wobble cycling deep and coming back to the surface in perfect timing. Recharging the skirt with oxygen allowing an unbroken smoke trail. This raises the game fish and promotes aggressive prey drive.
With this lure skirted by us, total lure length is 12.5 inches, from tip of head to end of skirt.
A fantastic 50lb tackle lure with 200lb leaders and heavier. This lure can also swing a larger hook with a larger skirt for 37kg if required, without losing its aggressive dead straight wobble. Alternatively, 37kg is fine also with the 12.5 inch offering.
This model is true running!
All skirts on this model are bound and nail knotted so if you wish to change the skirt colour, no problem!
Trolling speeds vary depending on where in the world you are. Ideally 8.5 to 14 knots is around where people like to sit, personally I prefer 9 knots! You cover ground, raising everything and see an aggressive spread happening.
Short corner, long corner, short rigger, long rigger…. This model can be run in multiple positions while trolling. It cycles deep and is also particularly good for short running as it is not lost in white water.
One of our charter outfits that we supply, Thumper Bluewater Expeditions in Golfito, Costa Rica, won “Top Pacific Blue Marlin Release Boat” by the Billfish Association in 2018, and as such we were chuffed to hear from owner, Harry Glah, that they released over 450+ Blue Marlin in the one year and 60% to 70% of them came in on the Poseidon Medusa Wobble, aka “The Wobbler” as dubbed by the crew, on long corner.
