The Reidy’s Big Ass B52 (180mm 46.6g) is a bigger and heavier version of the B52 for bigger fish, heavier tackle, longer casts, or all of the above.  It is a great lure for shallow flats, rapids and other suitable shallow areas.  They have a built in body roll action that make them considerably easier to work than lures such as the gold bomber.  It works almost the same as the smaller B52 but has a more meaty feel to it and is slower to rise at about 5 seconds.  It has a Very good quality rattle that helps Barra pick up vibration even in flowing water.  Techniques that work for this lure are the slow roll, pull and pause retrieve, fast twitching, twitch and pause, pull down float up or your own unique retrieve.
