There are a number of ways that these octopus-skirted lures can be rigged up. You can run your line through the top of the lure, and then thread on a sinker, plus your hooks. This would allow the plastic skirt to slide down over your bait, adding a flashy attraction to the bait.
They come in a number of different sizes and colours for all seasons, and are great for trolling for tuna, Spanish mackerel, marlin, kingfish and tailor. You could also use them to dress up your baits when deep sea fishing for snapper, morwong, flathead and other deep sea fish species on a paternoster rig.
So whether you are deepwater bait fishing, or trolling dead baits, the Wilson Octopus Skirted lure is the one to have.
