Winner of the Best Soft Saltwater Lure of the ICAST 2023 New Product Showcase, the new Z-Man Mulletron LT Swimbait is a new realistic mullet imitation swimbait. Beyond just looking like a mullet the swim action imitates a mullet. The wedge-shaped tail lets the lure be fished in a wide range of speeds while still having a realistic swimming action. The LT in the name is in reference to the reinforced line-through harness of the bait. This lets the bait slide up the line after the hookset during the fight. The harness and buoyant super-plastic material is been carefully balanced so that the bait stays upright when swam slow, on the fall, or even just resting on the bottom.
These baits are made from Z-Man’s 10X Tough Elaztech super-plastic material, making them capable of withstanding strike after strike after strike from aggressive saltwater gamefish. All of the mullet come with a custom heavy-duty sickle-shaped black nickel hook. They will be offered in two sizes; a 4.5″-3/4oz, and a 6″ – 1 3/4oz. MSRP on these lures is $9.99 and $12.99, they should be available for purchase this fall.
