The Vulcan 60 is a very popular medium-heavy tackle short-bait lure and is developing a great reputation as a good all-around performer, capable of being placed anywhere in the spread. With a lot less taper than some similarly shaped heads, the Vulcan remains stable through a whole slew of rough-water conditions while still submerging in a moderately deep cycle. It’s not just a great splash bait though, as it really does dive with a long distinct bubble-trail.
It has a good hookup reputation and is the perfect partner for a louder more aggressive bait up shorter, or a quieter “mouse-trap” bait further behind it. The Vulcan has been used a great deal as a short-corner lure by crews since we introduced it in 2008, but it is tremendously stable for a slant-headed bait and therefore does make an effective stand-alone long-corner lure as well. As an all-out attack lure though, it excels on the short rigger when running in monster country, where it will get hammered by aggressive fish, and it makes an aggressive, noisy teaser.
