MAGTRAK 10
for WAHOO!

You know, there's a reason I go to ICAST every year.  I always find a few interesting things I wouldn't have discovered had I not spent the time and money to attend. This year I was surprised to meet a fellow who shops with us from NorCal, working a both of a lure maker I'd not heard of, he's also one heck of an angler, prostaff for a few firms. He's a ringer, and if involved in something there's generally a good reason behind the involvement.  Sure glad I took some time to visit and check out their wide range of products.  The lure that really caught my eye was their MagTrak 10. It's a plaining head type lure with some similarities to YoZuri's Bonita and Braid Marauder, with some innovative wrinkles which makes it very interesting indeed. Over the past year the Nomad DTX Minnow has been the hands-down favorite wahoo trolling lure, for very good reason. They get bit! The downside with the DTX is that it can be a "one and done" lure. What I mean by that is that there can be times when the lure gets hammered by a wahoo or deckhand and then won't swim true.  Out of the box all Nomad's swim great, but the lure can get tweaked and then not stay in the water, and of course it no longer will it be useful. For many of us, that's a small price to pay for the joy of catching a speedster wahoo. But, if you fish more often or simply expect more durability over time, then the MagTrak may just be the best wahoo troller for you.

About the Lure: The MagTrak is a hollow bodied lure, made with ABS with an internal head weight. The lure had connecting thru-wire construction which can not be pulled out.  The hooks are EXTREMELY durable and super sharp.  You will not even consider their replacement, they are perfect for their task. On our recent Red Rooster trip to Guadalupe Island I dragged one of these lure. That trip was not intended to target wahoo, water temp was cool and that destination wasn't intended for wahoo...those focused wahoo trips come later this season.  But, I wanted to see how the lure behaved in the water. PERFECT! You drop the lure in the water and it gains depth and trolls perfectly, straight and true. Not at all like the old YoZuri Bonitas and Marauders which can end up changing position in the trolling spread simply because they aren't balanced. The plaining head is very broad, longer than lures which actually larger. The lure itself is fairly skinny, so the big plaining head really works to it's advantage. These things are the straightest running lures I've seen and they can deal with realistic trolling speeds - even UP TO 20 knots! I've seen surface lures do that, never deep runners!  The MagTrak runs straight and true, and it does so under a wide range of speeds!  Durable? No wahoo will damage this lure that I've ever seen. These lures are tough. Having said that, they are also darn expensive!

MagTrak™ Wahoo Lure Features:

bullet 10 Inch Dynamic Body with patented design to swim in a fashion that replicates small wahoo
bullet HookMag Technology with 10/0 304 Series Stainless Steel Hooks
bullet Increased Hookup Ratio
bullet Increased Strike Ratio
bullet No Hassle at High Speeds no Trolling Weight Required
bullet Any Position from short corner to shotgun in the spread
bullet Multiple Color Patterns
bullet Through Wire Construction on Ultrasonically Welded Solid ABS Shells
bullet Welded Rings on 500 lbs strength ball bearing swivels

From the Manufacturer: The MagTrak™ is truly a new breed of Wahoo and Big Game Lures.  The MagTrak features a patented design that allows the lure to swim straight and below the surface at speeds of up to 20 knots, or within short aggressive turns directly inside or outside the propwash.   The MagTrak also incorporates the patented HookMag™ Technology that keeps the front hook in the stinger position at any speed until a Wahoo or other strike occurs.  The hook is then released and direct swivel connection to hook and mouth of fish.  Please check out the videos below for a better understanding of the concept.  PATENT AND PATENT PENDING NO. US 15/783,764, CN 201811130554.8, EU & EPO 18196736.5, AU 2018233051, US DESIGN: 29/666,174, SE DESIGN 84191

 

  You can rig these lures on our standard style harnesses which are available from 175 to 450 lbs. The 275# cable is very appropriate.

 

Comparing a Nomad DTX costing $35 to one of these at $90, noting both will catch fish, why is the MagTrak worth the money? Well, durability is a prime consideration. You won't be replacing this lure due to wear, a fractured tail, a deckhand's blow or a fish's hard bite. It will outlast it's competition. There are a few reasons for their expense, one the big reason is their use of an expensive neodymium magnets which are nickel and epoxy coated.  The front belly hook sits in a receiver, held in place by the magnet, until the fish strikes.  By running the hook in the receiver the hook won't scar up the sides of the lure, like so many others of similar design, and it's always in the best position to hook your wahoo. Given they way wahoo normally strike a lure, first strike can often be from the front. The hook is where it's most productive, and it won't bang into the lure, helping the lure always run true. Even if the hook comes out of the receiver it will still run true up to 18 knots. The belly hook is always in the stinger position, which in theory will increase hookup percentage compared to most lures.  In fact, Nomad made a video showing use of a rubber band to keep their belly hook on the DTX in stinger position. The MagTrak 10 weighs in at about 12 1/2 ounces.
