The Megabass Zonk 77 SW Gataride Hi-Pitch has been designed as a super shallow, sub-surface slow-sink­­­­­­ing minnow for bay area and estuary use. At just 7.7cm (and 10.9 grams), this lure comes packed with features that it has inherited from its bigger brethren, the Megabass Zonk 120 SW - Gataride Hi Pitch, making it just as potent, a killer of a lure.

Similar and common to the Zonk 77 SW Gataride Hi-Pitch, is the incorporation by Megabass of a unique movable hinged bib, that levels up when cast to reduce drag coefficient (which then returns to the down position when retrieved) and a dorsal water port system that displaces water to create a bubble trail in its tracks to guide its intended target to it.

Where the similarities end is the Zonk 77 SW Gataride Hi-Pitch’s fixed double tungsten balancer system (the Megabass Zonk 120 SW - Gataride Hi Pitch comes with a tungsten weight transfer system that is intended for distance casting), which gives casting stability to the lure and allows it to sink slowly on a horizontal fall.

What however makes this lure stand out on it own, is its small size to weight ratio, which gives the angler plenty of close-quarter casting control. With its fixed double tungsten balancer system, the Megabass Zonk 77 SW Gataride Hi-Pitch comes into its own element when being cast and worked around structures such as jetty and wharf pillars where fish are known to congregate.

This is an excellent little lure to have for dinghy or kayak fishing.
