By: Luke Simonds on October 4, 2018
The D.O.A. Swimmin’ Mullet is a lure that I had in my tackle box for a long time but couldn’t figure out the best way to use it.
It wasn’t until recently that I found an application for it in deeper water.
Upon trying this lure out, I was immediately successful and caught a nice snook. I also garnered interest from other lunker fish in the same outing.
Since that time, I’ve used the D.O.A. Swimmin’ Mullet a number of times and feel like I have a good sense of this lure.
In this article, I offer my full review of the D.O.A. Swimmin’ Mullet and tell you my top pros and cons for the lure. I also show you some on the water action with this lure in the video review at the bottom of the article.

Top Three Pros & Cons For The D.O.A. Swimmin’ Mullet
In this section, I go over the top pros and cons of the D.O.A. Swimmin’ Mullet to help you get as accurate an understanding of this lure as possible before you buy it.
Top Three Pros Of The Swimmin’ Mullet
This section shows you the top three pros of the D.O.A. Swimmin’ Mullet.
For a soft plastic lure, the Swimmin’ Mullet is tough and made out of strong materials. It will hold up against big, tough fish longer than other soft plastic lures.
2. Good Action
This lure has good action. You can jig and straight retrieve it and get good movement from the soft plastic body either way.
3. Casting Distance
Due to the Swimmin’ Mullet’s weight, this lure can be cast a mile. The ability to cast this lure long distances also allows you to search an area you’re fishing thoroughly.
Top Three Cons Of The Swimmin’ Mullet
This section shows you the top three cons of the D.O.A. Swimmin’ Mullet.
1. The Soft Plastic Will Eventually Tear
The soft plastic lure will eventually tear after going up against tough fish and structure. Luckily there are replacement Swimmin’ Mullet bodies available for when they eventually break down.
2. Hard To Target Tarpon
The profile and action of the lure are great for enticing tarpon to strike but hard to keep them hooked up. The heavy jig eyes allow tarpon to shake loose from the lure easier than a species with a soft mouth like a snook would.
3. Only Good For Deep Water
I haven’t found an application I like for this lure when fishing anything less than 10′ of water. While I like the lure for deeper water fishing, it’s not a good shallow water choice.
D.O.A. Swimmin’ Mullet Video Review
In this video, I give you my top pros and cons of the D.O.A. Swimmin’ Mullet and show you the lure in use with some snook catching footage.
This is a good lure for deep water fishing and for catching fish that really thump lures.
For shallow water and tarpon fishing, this would not be my top lure choice.
