The Deka Bung from Jackall Timon is a unique “Area Trout” lure that revolutionized vertical fishing in Japan. These simple disc-like lures are made from a strong ABS composite with an added zinc weight. The shape and weight placement allow the Deka Bung to fall without tumbling and twisting in the water, creating a parachute-like action. Provided with a single barbless hook in the “front” position, the hook can also be moved to the “back” position with an added split ring if short strikes occur. The Deka Bung also features a slit on the top side that helps orientate and hold the hook correctly, increasing the catch rate.
Cast the Deka Bung to your intended target, let it fall to the bottom on a semi-slack line, and work the lure back with a lift and drop action. The Deka bung is most likely to get bit on the fall, so watch your line for any movement and be ready to set that hook.
