Ocean Angler takes sliding-head lure fishing to the next level with its latest addition, Coin Drops, a range of lures that’s even out-fishing our famously lethal Sliders! Much of this success is due to a radical lead-head shape based on the latest Japanese lure designs, but our version sports concave sides to create the best possible head-action whilst also generating turbulence to make a more enticing lure-skirt motion.
Sizes: 60g, 80g, 100g, 140g and 180g
Colours: Pink/Glow White, Orange/Red, Orange/Glow White, Pure Orange, Bruised Banana and Orange/Black.

On-the-water tips: The strong head shakes of big snapper can really bounce the weighted head around on trace material, so the heavier the Coin Drop, the thicker the trace required; two metres of 30-60lb fluorocarbon trace usually does the job nicely. Best fished on the drift, Coin Drops are dropped to the bottom then slowly wound upwards a few metres, before being dropped back down again; a super-slow mechanical jigging retrieve also works well. Bites are generally felt as small taps; a quick wind of the reel handle or a steady uplift of the rod generally works better than a hard strike in response. Some anglers position their Coin Drops to trundle along the seafloor, then place the outfit in a suitably angled rod holder so it hooks fish while they’re doing other things!
