About This

Googan Squad Contender

The slowly sinking body of the Googan Squad Contender has an unrivaled lifelike motion in the water. The 2-jointed, 3-piece body is painted with deliciously tasty details and features a unique, soft-touch rubberized matte finish. The rotating hook hangers are included to help keep your mondo from shaking the hooks. The Contender excels with a slow, steady retrieve. But don’t be afraid to experiment with a stop and go cadence, or even quick twitches of your rod tip. These retrieves can trigger wary bass. Pick up the larger Contender and go target your new PB! Or, if you care more about catching numbers of bass, opt for the downsized 4.5” version. The Jr. Contender excels in smaller bodies of water or where the bass are under fishing pressure.
