The Super Newt
Fishing the Super Newt, can be done in several ways. This bait is a huge piece of plastic, no weight is needed to cast.
Here is several ways to fish the Newt.
The Newt swims exceptionally well at the slowest retrieve. Several things are trying to happen at once during a slow retrieve.
First, the feet will spread apart and the legs will start to quiver. This causes the tail to instantly start swimming. If you speed up your retrieve with pulses in the cranking, the legs will start kicking open and closed. This gives the illusion that the legs are thrusting forward.

This is just as it reads. You can just go down the bank, picking out targets. Pushing out huge wake and nice bubble trail. You can run the Newt at any depth and at any speed, topwater or subsurface. Burning, sends out huge vibrations from the kicking legs.
It is extremely weedless, made for the heavy mats, thick tullies or open water. Should work great a search bait anytime of year.
The durability of this floating plastic formula, is very nice. Multiple fish catches are possible. Just slide it into a bed, it will setup. The rate of fall is 2 seconds per foot of fall, this with no weight and heavy 6/0 EWG Gamakatsu hook. Newt falls horizontal and slowly.
