Today I pulled the FRED (Fast Running Extremely Deep diving lure) from the jetty. I needed to know if the tow point was correctly positioned before proceeding to grind the underside of the lip to its final form.
I used a DAIWA Saltist 6500H with 58kg or 128lb test braided line, 200lb test sevenstrand wire leader and a 2-hand heavy spinning rod. And I really needed my two hands to pull the FRED thru the water, it is the world’s largest lipped lure and it is a hard puller.
FRED is a mega sized lure with an attitude and apetite for diving. FRED is a very strong swimmer and diver. Usually I only need to use one hand to pull my lures, but FRED is a different beast.
FRED is a monster, and a tremendous ego booster for everyone that lay their eyes and hands on it.
I expect performance to be beyond the extreme during future trolling tests.
