A bill extends from a forward end of the body for hydrodynamically biasing the body in response to movement of the lure. A keel extends from a bottom of the body to maintain stability of the lure when in motion. A hook extends from a rear of the body for engaging a fish attracted to the lure. A weight can be positioned within the keel so as to cause the body to assume a predetermined orientation within water.
