Anyone still fish these, going to try them out again this weekend. Have not used one in about 20 years.

Predecessor to the senko. Senko works better.

I like the action of senko more, but from what I remember slugo is heavier and may skip under the bushes a little better

One of the most innovative lures of all time.
Sometime this Spring, try letting one sink to the bottom in 3-6 feet of water and c r a w l it along.

You’ll need heavy line for what happens.


"..The pleasantist angling is to see the fish
Cut with her golden oars the silver stream,
And greedily devour the treacherous bait.

I like the action--fluke/senko type action with a faster fall.

The different plastic formula they use for Slug-Gos takes some getting used to (can tear significantly where the hook enters the belly)

I agree. A Senko is not like a Slug Go. Completely different actions. If a Slug Go is a predecessor of anything, it would be a fluke.

I still have a big bag of "Golden Shiner" Slugo. That bait was a game changer on Fork when it first opened under the right conditions.

The side to side action of a Slug-Go was unmatched until the Big Eye came along; so I changed over because of the eye. I was at Lake Baccarac during the hay day of both baits. We took 25 packages of each and barely had enough to finish out 5 days of fishing. Caught our biggest fish before daylight one of those mornings on a Pork-O out of the jar.

Absolutely... black and gold flake is hard to beat.. some of the biggest fish I’ve ever caught came from Monticello and LOP on sluggos
