Prins Plugs are the newest plugs available in Cape Town and the Eastern Cape and will soon be distributed in KwaZulu-Natal.
Usually, white chisel-nosed plugs are used. However, the pink chisel-nosed plug has shown great success – the bright pink colours seem to work much better than the other colours. The current fishing trend is for pink for yellowtail, be it trolled diving lures or squids
