Spinnerbaits are our specialty. Many years of on the water and tournament experience has hes helped us create a great line of baits and colors. I have personally been fishing these exact baits for over 15 years and they are my go to bait in the spring and fall. All of our heads are one basic color of Pearl White hologram with florescent Red Black dot eye. We us a round bend Mustad Ultra Point hook with .035 diameter wire form which are offered in 1/4 oz., 3/8 oz., 1/2 oz., and 3/4 oz.
Blades and the swivel are two components that make or break a quality spinnerbait and this is where we make a difference by using a #2 Gamakatsu swivel with a multitude of blade options. We are not big
on painted blades, however our unique scale pattern blades are our signature go-to design. Choose from our many blade options and match with any skirt of your choice through our a la carte ordering system.
Pro User Tip: Never be afraid to "tune" your spinnerbait to improve it's function and fish catchability. By bending or adjusting the wire form a little in front of the blade arm and/or in front of the head arm you can affect how the blades spin and how true the bait will track in the water.
Look for our signature "Blue" bead on the blade arm of our spinnerbaits!
Currently we are offering our football jig in a 1/2 oz. and a 3/4 oz. version. It has a 60 degree mustad heavy wire 4/0 mustad ultra point hook. We use our custom color powder paint in Green Pumpkin with Red Flake or our Black with Blue Flake for a tough, durable finish. Match your skirt colors with the jig head color of your choice.
VIBRATING BLADED JIGS
There are many bladed jigs on the market. With some of the patented designs offered by some of the major manufacturers there are some limitations when building these baits. We think we have come up with an extremely competitive offering available in stainless or gold blade (3/8 oz. or 1/2 oz. weight) and 3 head colors: White, Green Pumpkin Red Flake, and Black with Blue Flake. The key to this bait is the head is built with a recessed hook eye which improves the
blades ability to make contact with the jig head. Another nice feature is our use of a Mustad fastach line tie on our shaker blade which we feel is a much improved design for the vibrating jig.
We use a 5/0 Mustad ultra point heavy wire flipping hook and a stainless shaker blade with heavy 2/0 split ring connecting the blade to the head. Powder paint is baked on for a tough, durable finish required for these type of baits. The top of the shaker blade can be bent or tuned to get your desired amount of shake or vibration. Don't be afraid to experiment a little with these baits by working with the blade and many different trailers. Choose your head color, blade color, and match with any skirt you wish using our a la carte ordering system.
We offer 2 sizes of these jigs - 5/16 oz. and 7/16 oz. featuring a 60 degree 4/0 flat eye and heavy wire flipping hook.
These jig heads come in 2 custom colors: Green Pumpkin with a small amount of Red Metal Flake and/or Black with a small amount of Blue Flake. They have a baked on powder coat finish that is very chip-resistant.
With our a la carte ordering system you can mix and match your jig head color and weight with one of our skirt colors of your choice. Our 5/16 oz. flippin jigs are built with a spider/finesse skirt only.
Most of our skirts are made of 44 strands, however when blending colors we occasionally use up to 55 strands. Many of these designs have proven to be very productive for me over my many years of tournament competition on Mark Twain Lake and other locations. If you have a special or favorite skirt that you don't see here send us a note and we will try to customize one for you.
We use silicone skirts from several manufacturers which allows us to mix & match them to get a more custom and specialized look:
