Guide Review - A. C. Hatchery Trout Swim Plug

A. C. Plugs are great baits for trophy fish. They are a little hard to cast if you are not used to throwing big baits, but they are excellent if you want to catch the big one. They come with very sharp Owner hooks that are heavy enough to handle any fish you hook and are solidly built plugs.

You can get A.C. Plugs in a varitey of colors and patterns including minnow, trout, shad and others as well as a varitey of sizes.

These plugs look very realistic in the water. Based on the pictures of trophy fish on the site, big fish think they look real, too.

Note - A plug was provided to me free of charge to test and use.
