Slam Shady Mulligan VS. Z-Man DieZel MinnowZ [Casting Contest]
Time for the Slam Shady Mulligan VS. Z-Man DieZel MinnowZ Casting Contest!!!
This video is a continuation of our quest to find the paddletail that casts the farthest so you can catch more inshore fish!
Our NEW Slam Shady Mulligan is a 4-inch paddletail with dimples designed to cast far to reach those fish that your friends can’t!
We’ve pinned that against the Z-Man DieZel MinnowZ to see which lure casts the farthest.

Slam Shady Mulligan VS. Z-Man DieZel MinnowZ [VIDEO]
The Slam Shady Mulligan is covered with small dimples to behave similarly to a golf ball.
This contest is all about learning the impact of those dimples and how the Mulligan compares to lures without them.
We’ve pinned the Slam Shady Mulligan up against the Z-Man DieZel MinnowZ in this one.
The cool thing about these two lures is they are both 4 inches long and weigh the EXACT same amount.
For the contest, I used the same exact rod and reel setup for both lures.
And both lures were rigged up on a 3/0 Hoss Helix Hook weighing 1/8 oz.
We conducted this test on a small beach with the wind slightly pushing onto the water but not by much.
I performed 5 casts with each lure and pinned the marks in the sand to determine a clear winner.
The first flags we came upon were pink at just over 90 feet.
The pink flags represent the Z-Man DieZel MinnowZ casting distance.
As I mentioned before, both of these lures are excellent inshore fishing options.
The focus of this contest is how much the design of each lure impacts the casting distance.
Keep in mind if you are fishing with heavier jigheads, that will also impact your casting distance.
From the center of the pink flags, I walked out to the green flags that indicate the Slam Shady Mulligan.
The difference was about 12 feet.
This seems like a small distance but every 12 additional feet you are able to cast for every 100 casts equates to 4 FOOTBALL FIELDS of additional casting distance.
The fish closest to you are most likely going to be extra spooky and aware of your presence.
So the fact that the Mulligan casts a bit further puts you directly in an advantageous strike zone.
The more water we can cover in a short amount of time, the better.
Overall, make sure to think about which lure you are fishing with depending on the conditions in order to maximize your results.
If you are fishing shallow water and want to cover as much area as possible, the Slam Shady Mulligan is the obvious choice.
We’ve teamed up with Z-Man to create the Slam Shady lure color and implement it into several lure designs.
Z-Man soft plastics are best used in areas where you need durability.
Z-Man’s ElaZtech material is strong and stretchy which extends the life of their lures.
Even if I don’t regularly throw the DieZel MinnowZ, I always have a few in my tackle bag on every trip.
ElaZtech can help protect your lures against mackerel or pufferfish that have sharper teeth and shred plastics.
Both of these lures are ESSENTIALS in an inshore saltwater angler’s tackle bag.
