LureCharge lures are all made with specific components and have a special alloy anode attached at the front of the lure. The lure anode will corrode while protecting the more proud metal components of the lure. A by-product of corrosion is electricity. The exposed metal portions of the spoon as well as the hook and hardware are where the electric field radiate from.
How does this work?
We attach a sacrificial anode of a specific alloy at the front of the lure. We then use matched metals through the body of the lure and ensure electrical continuity through the entire length of the lure. This galvanic cell ends at a nickel or stainless hook. Some of my spoons are patterned on both sides, leaving an exposed metal portion. The electric field is dependent upon the exposure of the bare metal portions of the lure and/or hook to the surrounding water. Voltage will vary mainly with the use of different lure metals, anodes and mineral content of the water. In early testing on trout and salmon, increased catch rates were not seen until low voltage values were increased to higher levels. Once proper tuning was achieved, catch/strike ratios were as high as 7 to 1 for one of two identical lures trolled in an identical manner. The winning lures were the tuned ones.
