A collaboration that brought immediate success

CatchCo in the USA teamed up with lure designer Mike Bucca, and the result was a lure that hit the sweet spot, big time.

  • What makes it so special? The Bucca Baby Bull Gill mimics the most common bass prey and is easy to use. And there’s no need for specialised swimbait rods with this ‘downsized gem’. The Baby Bull Gill works on medium to medium-heavy casting and spinning rods.
  • Who’s it for? Anglers fishing in places where bigger fish are feeding on panfish, shad or small bass. If panfish are on the menu, this is the bait to tie on.
  • Give me some tech? This slow-sinking, 3.75-inch multi-jointed swimbait weighs ¾ of an ounce and is constructed of ABS plastic. It is available in six colour patterns that mimic sunfish, crappie, bluegill and shad. A smooth and steady wind allows the bait to swim two to five feet below the surface as it sways and undulates freely, creating an ‘S’ motion as it swims.
  • Prove it works? It was one of CatchCo’s top sellers in 2021.
