The Luhr Jensen J-Plug is a trolling lure made of super-strong materials designed for maximum action and strength. The J-Plug has a free-sliding swivel chain rigging design. J-Plug finishes are designed specifically for deep water trolling and low light conditions. There is a special J-Plug finish available for any fishing situation, whether you're after salmon, lake trout, stripers, brown trout or other large game fish.
J-Plugs are effective because they project a basic minnow image in the water which all fish relate to in all water conditions. This is a basic, wounded minnow, fast darting action which comes from a combination of special swivel chain rigging and lure head chamber design. The precisely engineered tolerance between the rigging and head chamber allows the swivel chain to shift and reposition itself within the chamber. This constantly changes the plug's attitude and direction in the water and creates its fish-catching, erratic, darting action.
The swivel chain rigging also allows a direct rod to fish connection after the strike as the plug body will slide up the line, free of the chain and hook assembly and away from the fish. This eliminates head-shaking leverage against the plug body that causes many fish hooked with solid body-to-hook plugs to break free. Because the J-Plug is buoyant and separates from the hook assembly, it will float to the surface where it can be retrieved in the case of a line break or bottom snag.
