Bought some newer mirrow lures (have been using antiques from my father's tackle box) and noticed that they have two eyelets - a standard one on the nose and one atop the head. What fishing technique would use the top of the head eyelet? I suspect trolling but thought I'd ask and get educated. Thanks.

Im not sure, but it sounds like the one on the top is to keep the lure up towards topwater and the one on the nose to keep it down a little. But that is just a thought!

It's a new style from Mirrorlure, see their website. Here's a description from that site: When game fish are feeding on smaller baitfish, this sinking twitchbait is ideal. Two line attachments provide multiple diving depths. The reflective holographic foil of the S38MR Series III ® and its small profile create a life-like baitfish.

Model: S38MR, Length: 3", Weight: 3/8 Oz. Depth: 2-6'+
Available Colors: 11, 18, 21, 26, 808, BCH, BNSBO, CFPR, CH, CHBL, EC, GR, MG, PS

It's offered in the s38mr and s51mr. They are for different line depths. Experiment and find out which you like best for the area you are fishing.
Yep, the top tie allows you to let the lure get deeper in the water column and the tie out the nose helps you keep the bait up in the water column.

These baits have been around for several years.
