The "Mighty" Cockroach works well in all trolling positions, though it is primarily a ‘short position'. The Cockroach has an aggressive action that hugs the water at all trolling speeds and will work fine in all weather conditions. This lure has gained an enormous reputation, quite simply because it works so well!
Pakula Cockroaches combine the best features of both Chuggers and Sprockets, resulting in a very stable lure for rough conditions. After breathing they dive very deep carrying a huge bubble trail, all the while shaking their heads violently. They then leave the bubble trail behind and increase their swimming action back to the surface to start the cycle again. These lures have a very aggressive action below the surface that all game fish find totally irresistible. Their cycle should be worked at least every 5 seconds. The lures in the Roach range will work in any fishable condition at any trolling speed. Their best positions are short corner and short rigger. This range of lures is particularly effective in rough seas, even trolling straight into a steep sharp chop, where most fail to perform forcing many frustrated fishermen to head for the dock.
