Designed for trolling at 4.5 knots or more. Blue Max series offers a "skirted" presentation. With the weighted Joe Shute Head, the Hogy combo tracks nice and straight, even in heavy seas. Although the BlueMax is rigged similarly to a skirted ballyhoo, the action, well, different. With the long soft tail associated with our Hogy soft plastics, the BlueMax has a deadly action that you really have to see to understand. The bait seemingly vibrates in the water.
