The Luhr Jensen Hot Shot 50 is a hard plastic trolling plug designed for trolling and backtrolling techniques used to target salmon and steelhead. The Hot Shot 50 Trolling Plug from Luhr Jensen is among the most popular steelhead lures ever created and continues to produce for anglers even today. Before "back-trolling" in rivers became an official technique, it was called "Hot Shotting" for the revolutionary lure that would forever alter steelhead fishing. With its compact body, deep-diving bill and quick, wide and aggressive action, the Hot Shot has become a staple of steelhead, trout and salmon anglers alike. Primarily backtrolled for river steelhead and salmon, the smaller sizes are outstanding as trolling lures in lakes or drift-fished lures in streams for trout. For trout, fish them behind a lake troll or flat line them far behind the boat on lakes, cast them cross-current and allow them to swing through likely holding spots on rivers. "Tune" each lure for maximum success by making small adjustments to the screw-eye line attachment (if the lure runs to one side, slightly rotate the top of the screw eye in the opposite direction). In any application, brace yourself for savage strikes. This model, the 50 size, measures 2 1/4" and weighs 1/8oz. The Hot Shot 50 has the ability to reach up to 5-8 feet in depth.
