Musky Mania 9" Doc

The Musky Mania 9" Doc needs no introduction to those who know what it is and what it is capable of. There have even been days where in the right hands it has out-fished live bunker.

The SWE on Thames Street in the early 2000's was the first time we laid eyes on this and it was a well-kept secret for almost a decade until word of its effectiveness on striped bass slowly spread.

At the time we knew the deadliness of the Jumpin' Minnow and wanted something bigger and happened to spot this online. We ordered some and were REALLY excited when we opened the box, only to be even more excited the first time we took it out on the water.

Much like other topwaters in this style, it'll catch almost anything. We've even caught big bluefin tuna on them.

While these lures do come with solid hardware in the form of VMC 9626PS hooks, we recommend considering an even further upgrade due to both due to the ability of fish to get leverage on this bait as well as the possibility of attracting and hooking something enormous. Split rings should be upgraded to, fish can develop remarkable forces on them and twist out all but the heaviest rings.

Our favorite hooks are the Owner Zo-Wire Inline Replacement Hooks in size 9/0.

Not only does the hookup ratio stay the same, far fewer fish are lost once hooked, and the hooks also cause less damage than a pair of trebles.

The 9" model weighs 3.5oz

Spooky morning

5:45 am soco Rhode Island salt pond dead flat water heavy fog first cast fired off my gsb 1201m 75 yards out so I could walk the dog into the out going current about 4 pumps in the water exploded like a ww2 depth charge I set the hook and after a tough 6 minute fight landed my personal best 38 inch bass,when fish hit this plug they aren’t trying to eat it they are ****** off and taking revenge for all the misses on real baits

The DOC is in

Both the Doc and Lil Doc lures are top notch striper surface lures (Maybe for Musky too). Easy "Walk the Dog" action produces aggressive hits. The larger size also seems to discourage the smaller fish as the smallest fish i caught with the lil doc was about 22".
