The 35mm RMG Scorpion STD is a sinking lure that works well on bream, flathead, trevally and whiting in the estuaries, while in the fresh you can target trout, perch, bass and golden perch with it.
After you have cast the lure, you will need to let it sink for a few seconds to get as near to the bottom as possible. Then start your retrieve, and along the way, give the rod tip a twitch and a pause every now and then. This action should excite the fish into biting the lure. It can be either slow-rolled or trolled at about 1 metre,
ideal to use in shallow flats, over shallow snags, rock bars and beside weed beds. This lure presents a natural action which should attract nearby fish. It can be successfully trolled at 0.5 to 4 knots. If you find that the sinking Scorpion STD get fouled up a bit, try crushing the barbs down, as it is sometime easier to get the lure off with just a flick of the line.
