  • Bucher Tackle Homepage: www.joebucher.com
    The SlopMaster Tandem is a surface lure that can be fished in some of the thickest, most impenetrable cover there is for big pike, muskies and giant bass.  For best results use a heavy duty, musky style, bait casting outfit and a low stretch super braid style line of no less than 50 lb. test. Thicker braided lines in the 75 to 80 lb. range perform best with this lure.

  • Casting: Cast beyond intended cover targets (brush piles, weed patches, etc.) whenever possible and engage the reel as soon as the lure hits the water.   Keep your rod tip in an upward angled position throughout the retrieve, and "gun" your reel hard initially to quickly drive the bait to the surface. Whenever the SlopMaster Tandem collides with cover, resist the urge to jerk it through the cover with your rod tip. Instead, simply "gun" the reel while keeping your rod tip pointed at the lure with that slight upward angle.  As soon as the SlopMaster clears the cover and hits open water, slow down the retrieve slightly. Be prepared for strikes to occur at any time, but a vast majority of strikes happen just after the lure collides with cover.  Set the hook only after you actually feel the fish take the lure, and then with a sideways sweep.

  • If you are getting short strikes and missed hook ups, you can effectively add a trailer hook to this set up as well.

Extended Information

Joe Bucher is changing the look of his packaging along with a few other changes. To get the new look into the big box stores, they are clearing out everything with the old packaging. The lure will remain a mainstay in the Muskie world, but deals like this run out when we run out of product.
