(Productive) Jig'n for Dummies!

5/19/2018 
Early post this week. We have a day and a half charter on the Tomahawk leaving Friday evening 5/18. I don't get to go fishing on this one, instead I'll cover our San Diego shop Saturday while Eric and Jeff from the shop go fishing.  Should be a very good trip, hoping for nice weather and cooperative fish!  Sure wish I was on the boat, but I've got to go to LAX early Sunday, depositing my mother-in-law at the airport and see her off.  She lives in Crimea but stays with our family a few months each year. Great for our youngest to have that connection, but for me...there is a downside. She's a good cook, it's an easy plus 10 lbs when she's here...

Our shops are getting busy, folks are chomping at the bit to go fishing. For those who have had the chance to go out there has been a pretty good bite with some bluefin and smaller yellowtail out of San Diego and decent local fishing for rockfish, bass and every once in a while a nice white seabass. We'll see some better grade yellowtail as the season progresses. It's early, and every week we'll see things progress.  Hoping you find what you were looking for on the Weekly Specials. We will stay pat with the reels showcased last week, they're good ones!  Avet has a nice promotion going on now, timing couldn't be better for you! We have new lures to show off, as well as a couple proven favorites this week.  United Composites most popular series posted, and a warehouse goof that works to your advantage on some dandy poppers.  Good reasons to visit, and we sincerely thank you for taking the time to visit our Weekly Specials.

Sincerely,
Mark Smith
(The Weekly Specials are updated (surprise!) Weekly! Usually its a Sunday Morning exercise, but...
things can change with little or no warning as a result of local fishing conditions,
or wife's directive.)


Billing: Please note, we do things a bit differently than other on-line businesses, in part due to my own concerns over on-line privacy and fraud protection. When you submit your order with us, you will not be asked for your CVC number during check out. You are immediately sent an order confirmation. We will then contact you by phone or email to confirm your order, make sure rigging if needed is clearly understood, stock availability confirmed and then we will ask for the CVC and process your order. We do NO billing online. Best practices for on-line credit card transactions is to never store CVC numbers - for YOUR PROTECTION. Once we process your order and bill your card, that information is shredded. You will need to re-enter that data each time your order on-line. We do this to protect your private information.  I was on the bad end of a fraud situation some years back, twice, $40K each time, over 80K! One was an ACH transfer, the other bogus credit card billing. I'm still on the hook for over 20K, from what I considered a trusted supplier.... You can not count on your bank's help, but you can limit your exposure. We treat our clients like we'd like to be treated, thus the added security.  

FREE Fed Ex GROUND SHIPPING*
*Free Shipping for orders over $150 (one package, MOST rods will carry a surcharge of $20) shipped within USA FedX or USPS - AK and HI via USPS included so long as your order can fit in a standard size flat rate box - otherwise there will be a charge).  Oversize items, like lobster nets, rods and International orders will carry a shipping charge which we will quote you prior to billing.  Please note, FedEx and UPS no longer want the long rod business. They have increased their shipping rates for boxes 96 inches or greater, increased to over $100!  We have a work around for most of CA, but have not found an alternate arrangement for the long rods.  Working on it...  Reason for the increase, increased handling costs - labor vs. conveyer and machine, it takes a human to move the long boxes without risk of damage...

*Standard Size and Weight Orders over $150 are shipped FREE!  Orders less than $150 are billed for shipping. Rods & Blanks, given their extra length, will have an added cost of up to $20 - this is a change for 2015 due to increased shipping charges from FedEx and UPS, packaging costs also increased this year for longer boxes. Upon placing your order you'll receive an immediate confirmation via email. You are not billed at that time, the confirming email may not reflect oversize or overweight charges or other issues requiring direct contact. We process orders manually, preferring to have a human actually check things over and contact you should there be questions. Within 24 hours of placing your order you will receive a follow-up email confirmation and final  invoice (pdf doc) reflecting your total charges (Monday-Friday). You are not billed until we actually send you your final invoice.  Orders shipped to CA addresses will have California Sales Taxes applied, out of state orders are tax free. During the ordering process you can select expedited shipping if required. The Free Shipping offer applies to ONE standard size/weight box going to ONE address. Orders requiring more than one box will have additional shipping fees for the second box. *(One standard sized and weight box, within USA. If the order requires multiple shipping cartons then there will be increased shipping costs. Within the USA we usually ship via Federal Express ground. International, and oversize/weight items will be billed for shipping and you will be sent an emailed invoice reflecting total charges prior to actual billing. We will not ship without you having had a chance to review the invoice). Hawaii and Alaska shipping will be accomplished using USPS Priority service, and our standard shipping cost policy will apply unless the item ordered does not fit in their standard size boxes. If additional shipping fees are required we will contact you).


Special #1
AVET Raptors!
Save 10% OR Take Advantage of Special Offers
(like free rigging)

Raptors are a more refined, and higher drag capacity series of reels from Avet. These take their whole game up one notch, providing truly big fish capable reels in compact sizes. Their machining is better, their operation better, and their drag capacity much greater than their size would suggest. There is less side load on the bearings as a result of increased drag capacity. Casting is flawless, and all models with the exception of the HX Wide Raptor come with Avet's super performing Magnetic Cast control. They are the best this innovative manufacturer produces, and they are made to outperform all other reels on the market.

Pictured right, the powerful and compact Avet JX Raptor.

Pictured above left, the JX Raptor. Drag the mouse over the image to change view. Pictured above right are three models of Raptor, the little SX, MX, JX/LX and the HX. All Raptors feature dual drags, magnetic cast control (with the exception of the wide), ratcheting lever, extended handle length  and extended line capacity compared to the standard models.

Special #2

Avet HX Raptor Three Speeds
Nothing like a low ratio granny gear for pulling stumps!

Three Speed Reels

Avet now produces all three HX sizes, from narrow, standard and wide in three speed form! Gearing is well thought out, faster on the top end, powerful in the midrange and a stump pulling 1.3:1 on the low gear. Raptors represent Avet's best effort, dual drag, high drag capability, excellent freespool performance for superior casting, magnetic cast control (on the HX not HXW), harness lugs, progressive ramp for the lever... Of course, like all Avet reels the new HX Raptor 3 speeds are made from machined aluminum, anodized for long term durability, carbon fiber drag material...

 

 

Standard Avets are great reels, the Raptors take the performance to the next level, and now with three speeds the versatility increases. The lower low gear will prove a huge advantage when dealing with a larger fish, and the faster high gear will improve jigging effectiveness.

Daiwa Saltist
All Models Now In Stock!

Daiwa's Saltist series conventional star drag reels have been a hit since they were first introduced almost 10 years ago. 2018 marks the third generation of Daiwa's Star drag Saltist Series.

Daiwa doesn't change products unless they feel they need to, and in the case of the Saltist reels, they really didn't need to make a change. They've been solid performers, great casters, and have established a very favorable reputation.  The update to the reels seems minor at first glance, but we see couple things evolved for the better.  Specs are still quite good for what these reels are intended to do, they'll cast well, have more drag available than necessary, and they are a nicer build.  One thing I quickly noticed, of course my pet peeve, how's the drainage? Are they trapping saltwater internally or allowing for easier cleanup by a tired angler after a day on the water?  How's the freespool? Overall feel???

Feel, well they feel tight and smooooth, spin like tops, and they addressed drainage like Okuma did on the Makaira series reels.  The old Saltists did a great job with four ports for drainage, getting the job done vertically or horizontally. The new models took that design and made the ports about double the size. That's great in my estimation! Gearing on all reels in the series is 6.4:1, quick. Daiwa's conservative with their products, very conservative company, and conservatively rates their reels for use with 12-40# mono, and double that for braid (typical for Japanese manufacturers - but I see no reason to claim a higher test with braid than mono - pressure is pressure...  It's all about line capacity and drag capability.  Given the drag these reel put out, you can indeed fish them quite successfully.  Also, most of us fish a mix of braid and mono.  So, I'm going to suggest that Daiwa made an error calling the reels 12-40# models. Clearly with their drag and capacity numbers, these reels cover lines/leaders greater than 40#.  Frankly, the 50# sill see duty at 50-60# by many anglers, and there will be those fishing straight 50# braid with a short topshot of 30# on the small 20 size.  But, Daiwa provides some guidance. 

Saltist 20H pictured above - as of 3/18 we've received the 15H, 20H, 30H, 40H, 50H - 35H size coming...

 

From the manufacturer:
The SALTIST STAR DRAG CONVENTIONAL REELS are designed with the latest trending features, strong yet compact and light. The 6 reels in the series will hold line classes from 12- to 40-pound test mono and are strong enough for braid sizes up to 80-pounds. The drag system can apply as much as 25-pounds of pressure to the spool. Constructed from machined aluminum, anodized for maximum corrosion resistance, these reels are sturdy and durable yet high performing. The true freespool of this star drag system allows for longer casts under a variety of conditions and uninhibited spool pay out is ideally suited for fishing live bait. The 6.4 to 1 gear ratio is fast enough for jigging, yet powerful enough to put big fish on the deck. Competitively priced for a high performance reel, it won’t be long before you see Saltist Star Drag Reels loading up the rod racks of your favorite local fishing vessel.

SALTIST® STAR DRAG FEATURES:
  • 6 reels designed to hold from 12- to 40-pound monofilament
  • Maximum drag pressure from 17- to 25-pounds, well suited for braided line
  • Built from machined aluminum with an anodized finish for greater corrosion resistance
  • 4 stainless steel ball bearings and a roller bearing
  • Extremely smooth freespool
  • 6.4:1 gear ratio
  • Centrifugal Breaking System for control and longer casts

Early Customer Feedback: One of our clients stopped in last week to have a new topshot put on his new 35 which was purchased in March. Needed it done, he put the reel to good use the week before landing several schoolie bluefin on an overnighter aboard the Tamahawk out of San Diego. The reel was flawless, great casting, smooth and confident drag performance at both light and heavier levels.  The fish were in the 40-60# class, client's success came when he dropped down leader to 25 lbs and took advantage of the casting prowess of a free spinning star drag and a drag that was smooth at the lower ranges.

Special #4

ACURATE Valiant
-Micro Reel with Mega POWER!
And, for 2018 some larger versions too!

Accurate has a couple of new things to mention. The little 300 size is now available with clicker for $10 more than the standard model.  Valiants will now also be available in silver with blue trim (or with red as is pictured).  Further, Accurate is offering the reels in black at no increase in cost at the present time. This had been only available with an upcharge of $100.

Accurate's newest fishing reel is the Valiant, a very interesting micro small model with mega power. Overseas Micro-Jigging has become a popular method for catching fish. Small jigs, fished vertically on rods with VERY light action can produce a catch when other methods won't do squat. In areas that have been "fished out" folks are catching fish they'd have missed without this method employed. Whether or not that's a positive step in overfished waters is not the point, the method is important and useful even in abundant waters, and the innovations in fishing technology used can be applied to different applications. In Mico-Jigging the fisherman works very small jigs, similar to how one should fish knife jigs (and similar iron) on parabolic rods matched to the jig weight for best action. Then, once hooked up the angler points the rod directly at the fish and uses the reel's power to crank in the fish. There's a certain amount of finesse and a certain measure of raw power employed in fishing this method. All the stress of the fight is handled by the reel, not the rod. Here, rather than Asia, micro-jigging may not become the rage, however the concept of taking larger fish on smaller gear is something we have all learned to love, and no doubt Accurate wrote the book on that pursuit.  Taking that style of fishing, dropping down to much lighter jigs and rods is what folks are doing in this new method of catching fish. Having a reel small enough to balance out on the rod and yet powerful enough to fight the fish is the key. Power is critical, and the new Valiant from Accurate combines superior power to exceptionally light weight - 9.9 ounces!

For 2016/17 Accurate further develops the Valiant project with more sizes, the 400 in single and two speed versions, and 500 in standard and narrow widths - and again in both single and two speed form.  Accurate showed off the 600 sizes at ICAST 2017, and hinted at two additional models, 800 & 1000.

Accurate reels are now available in several colors. See drop-down menu in the ordering section for options. Some colors may delay delivery by two to three weeks.

The 500 sized Valiant's work well with 50# braid, offering 350+ yards on the narrow and 450+ on the standard width reels. Depending upon the braid used, hollow verses solid, 8 or more strands verses 4, it's possible to gain capacity. The upgrade lines (we include those options at no additional charge) move the reels into the 400 and 500 yard mark (100% braid 12 or 16 strand hollow-core or 8 strand solid). For most casting applications, it's best to work with a leader of 50 yards or greater (certainly cover your casting distance).

Accurate further developed the Valiant project with more sizes, the 400 in single and two speed versions, and 500 in standard and narrow widths - and again in both single and two speed form.  At the 2017 ICAST show Accurate showed off their 600 size which is now available (three sizes, 600NN, 600N and 600). And, for 2018 we have already received the 800, 800N and soon the 1000 sized reels.

800N and 800 sizes

I must admit to some personal skepticism over the larger 800 and 1000 sized Valiants.  Those large sized reels made me a bit insecure, thinking folks would take advantage of the size and attempt to do things that really are best done on ATD 50's. I was concerned about fishing 80-100 lb lines at appropriate drag settings, heavy loading. The large Valiants have the line capacity to fish heavier tests. Well, I may need to revise my thinking...  The folks at Accurate are boasting of a 424 lb yellowfin tuna taken off Loreto Mexico on a Val 800 2 speed! The fellow who landed the fish, fishing aboard a private charter boat, is no slouch angler. He's a ringer, no doubt, and he knew what he was doing - not a random catch, it was targeted aboard a boat that could maneuver and chase the fish.  He was not overloading the reel, since he was running 50# line, he had very good line capacity to work with.  So, this is a far different situation than fishing aboard a Long Range sportfishing that's dead in the water with 28 guys at the rail.  Nonetheless, a yellowfin over 400 lbs is a super catch on any gear, and to think it was done on such a light reel is nothing short of amazing! I'll put aside my skepticism, that's an incredible accomplishment by a very experienced angler. This is a pending IGFA world record for 50# line.  Congratulations to the angler and to Accurate! - Mark

CHALLENGER ELITE
Dual Helix Composite Designs
By United Composites
(formerly known as Graphite USA)

United Composites produces four primary series of rods, plus specialty series like Rail Rods and Boat Rods. The Challenger Elite series are the most reasonably priced rods in their line. The Elite Composite Series of Dual Helix with uni-directional fiberglass blanks are three ply, dual helix build with carbon fiber and then an additional ply making use of uni-directional fiberglass. The exceptional lift these rods attain is a result of the uni-directional 'glass (UC is the only firm using this unique fiberglass in their build). Dual Helix construction provides the hoop strength, the 'glass provides the lift.  Other manufacturers use dual oriented 'glass to gain hoop strength - at a lesser degree than UC accomplishes.

These rods make use of very good quality braid safe ALPS stainless steel guides, lightweight EVA grips, and composite reel seat. The standard build rods do not have gimbals, if desired you can select the C+ version Challenger Elite rods with metal ALPS seat and gimbal and hypolon grips for $40 upcharge as described below. Please note, we also have most of these models available custom produced by our friend Salty Dawg, cost is higher but there are some upgrades.


8  foot rods are available Deckhand style or with reel seats. Pictured is the Deckhand style grip with Turk's Head.
While we do list the 9 and 10 foot models, please note you really don't want us to ship rods of this length - very expensive, very, very expensive.

Challenger Elite - Composite Dual Helix carbon fiber plus Unidirectional Fiberglass. VERY light weight, progressive action - near parabolic in bend. Available with and without reel seat, two versions of most rods, composite seat or dual lock down ALPS aluminum seats. In most basic terms, the CE blanks follow a three pattern build, 2 carbon and one fiberglass.
 

Buy Description Line Lure Wt. Length Price

The rods in the section below make use of lightweight EVA grips and composite reel seats, with no gimbal. If you prefer, we can build your rod with ALPS aluminum reel seat and hypalon grips and add a gimbal butt. Expect a 3-4 week turn around time for this customized build. Rods below all are set up for conventional reels. If you have interest in spinning guides please order below and bounce us back an email and we'll confirm build time and final pricing.

All Rods Below Are Deckhand Style Rods - without reel seat, corktape wraped handles & Turk's head w/sinecord to support extended use w/corktape handle. If you want these made with reel seat and/or gimbal butt, select option above. Typically rods of this length require neither, deckhand style being much more appropriate.

One point to mention, UC's deckhand rods are skinny in diameter than most other rod makers thanks to their unique use of carbon fiber in the dual helix design. So, if you have had trouble finding a rod skinny enough to fit an Accurate 400N or 500N you've found a match. Since the rods are so skinny some manufacturers reel clamps may require shorter bolts or nuts. Avet has smaller bolts, and we have a fix for other Accurate reels.  For some other manufacturers reels you may have to build up the area where you plan to position your reel. That's easy enough, make use of some heat shrink or an extra wrap or two of cork tape. Alternatively, all UC rods below can be ordered with a reel seat. With a seat, no change in bolts or nuts is necessary, but the rod will weigh a bit more given eva or hypolon grips with seat. There is a trade-off in weight when you move away from a deckhand. This is really only a consideration on the 8 footers, 9's and 10's will have more meat at the area where you'll mount your reel so the standard screws and bolts won't be a problem.

ToroTamer
Inventory Adjustment!

ToroTamer did their inventory, well they still have a bit to go. But, noticed a rather major stock imbalance. They're overstocked on the small poppers. The big ones got the most heat the past couple years in our area, the small lures were hotter on the export market - Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama.  Toro ramped up the inventory levels on the little guys to support sales down south. But, distributor for Central America went out of business. That leaves Toro's warehouse overstocked on the smaller 120 mm lures.  These are thru wired, with treble hooks. Great lures for tossing with spinning gear or smaller baitcasters.  Lures weight 1 1/2 ounces, and are just a tad under 5 inches in length.  Regular price is $12.99, but not this week...

BIG EZ SWIMBAITS
From Gambler Lures

Gambler's Big EZ swimbaits are unique in shape and feature a couple things we've been wanting to see as an alternate to the more traditional West Coast style inshore plastics.  You'll note the nose is more pointed rather than squared off, that works better for some jigs - best for the weighted hooks from Eagle Claw and Gambler's Duz-It underspins.  There's also a recessed area on the back of the lures, easy to rig these things weedless. The lures are enhanced with Gambler's Bite attractant.

Really some nice chunks of plastic, meaty baits. They swim nicely, must be the hips and the narrower waist. They do have a very nice kick in large part because of the segmented tail.  The lures are 5 inches in length, and are made to fish on a belly weighted hook or with a crew in weight. Their erratic swimming action will arouse a bite, no doubt about it. Lures come five per bag at a very reasonable $4.69.

Nomad Design
DTX Deep Divers

DTX MINNOW

The DTX Minnow is a revolution in trolling minnows, featuring the Nomad Autotune, Hydrospeed, Diamond Armour and Gorilla Through Wire advanced design technology. The pat. pending Autotune system was designed over years of testing by Damon Olsen and is a revolution in lure technology that will be applied to all deep diving lures across the Nomad range into the future. The Autotune design provides for 2 key features– maximum diving depth, and the ability to ensure the lure always swims straight

 

Bibbed minnows have traditionally been made with an eyelet fixed into the bib of the lure. It is impossible to control the manufacturing process to ensure that this fixed eyelet design is always perfectly centred and the fixed wire eyelet is not bent. Therefore, virtually every type of bibbed minnow made with a fixed wire eyelet in the bib will occasionally either not swim straight out of the box, or will fail to swim straight after one or a few fish. The eyelet is either not straight to start with, or becomes distorted during use.

 

The pat. pending Autotune system developed by Nomad Design has eliminated this problem. The design eliminates problems during manufacturing and ensure that no matter how many fish you catch, the lure will keep swimming straight. During testing we had lures that had caught over 50 fish, and had been worn through from wahoo and dogtooth teeth to the point of the lure body filling with water, but the lure kept swimming perfectly. The DTX minnow with Autotune will always swim straight, first time and every time, no matter how many fish you catch.
 

In the first image you can see the plate of steel to which the split ring is connected. The plate "floats" so it's angle can change, always keeping the lure running true. The second image shows the forward position for connecting an assist hook rather than the single hook mounted at the belly. This would be the preferred hook type for a billfish or perhaps a larger grade tuna that might torque the singles. You can re-rig with a treble if so desired at the same positions as the singles for best tracking.

 

The other key feature of the Autotune system is the amazing diving depth that can be achieved. The ability of the system to perfectly centre itself every time on the bib means that the tow point can be designed to be as far back on the bib as possible, effectively just forward of the point where the lure becomes unstable and won’t swim. However, having the tow point as close to this “point of not swimming” is what achieves maximum diving depth, but it can only be done with a perfectly centred tow point. Traditional fixed eyelet trolling lures are unable to position the tow point this far back on the bib and have to allow room for error in the manufacturing process.

The pat.pending Autotune system has eliminated this problem and has set a new standard for diving depth in trolling lure design. In addition to the Autotune technology, the concealed Hydrospeed belly eyelet allows faster trolling speeds with single hooks, and ensures the lure is balanced with single hooks, so the DTX minnow just keeps swimming straight and true. The additional belly eyelet in front of the Hydrospeed eyelet is designed to be able to fit an assist hook when targeting large tuna and marlin. For tips on how to rig your DTX minnow for marlin and tuna, please see the website videos.

 

The DTX 165 and 200 minnows are rigged with our purpose designed inline single hooks and will reach max. depth between 4.5-8kn.  Ideal for tuna, wahoo, king mackerel, yellowtail, mahi mahi, marlin and sailfish, and every other predatory fish in the ocean, The DTX minnow is your first choice in bluewater trolling lures.

 

Rigging - do not over-rig these lures, you'll detract from their action and performance. Thinner diameter leader means greater depth with any billed diver and a heavy line improperly rigged can impede the Autotune system. Don't go in for a lot of hardware, snaps and such. A simple loop with crimp, on 3' of 175 cable terminating ina swivel for line attachment is plenty good enough and will outfish heavier lines. Don't run 'em on 12 feet of 400  lb cable! A shorter 3 feet of say 175-275 lb is recommended, and is more than sufficient if you are targeting wahoo on the troll. Same story for mono and tuna, keep it simple, and fish reasonable line tests for your target. Thinner diameters get you more depth and will catch you more fish.

The Slash - Cast and Rip Bait

BACK IN STOCK

Slash jigs can be fished a couple ways, for great effect. For our long range fishermen, it's a GREAT wahoo lure in the two smaller sizes of 100 and 150 gm. For deepwater enthusiasts it's a deep water tuna jig with excellent action on the drop and wind, with the 300 and 400 sizes being the lure of choice for the larger grade bluefin and yellowfin tuna which tend to hold deeper than the schoolie fish. The lure's casts great and they are rigged properly with a higher quality single hook and a ball bearing swivel (ours even points the right way...) attached with welded rings. Colors and finish are top quality. While it will bring in wahoo when they are around, don't be afraid to jig it for tuna and yellowtail. If your fishing trip heads to Alijos you've got a great wahoo lure, but if it shifts gears and moves to Cedros fine, you've got the right lure for yellowtail. If instead you hit the banks for rockfish, you've still got an effective lure on your hands. The two smaller sized lures work great on the "slide" as an enticement to other school fish following a troll strike. One lure, fits a few applications, and a few different styles of fishing. 

This versatile lure can be fished several ways, cast and retrieve, vertical yo-yo style jigging, and speed jigging. There is a very slight curve to the lure, allowing a bit more action on the drop and as the lure is bounced up. This can be accentuated by the angler easily, and it's not a bad call on the two smaller sizes, though not something I recommend on the two largest sized slash lures. It's important to keep a good contact on the lure if you're fishing yo-yo style for a couple reasons. First, you won't know you've been bitten unless you've got contact with the lure, secondly the lure can foul itself on the two larger sized Slash lures - those with the receiver for use with small lightsticks. if you don't offer some control of its accent or descent when not using a light stick the lure's hook can enter the cavity. It's not common, but it can be done if you do not have some control of the lure's very fast decent to depth.

Based upon client feedback, we've expanded this series of lures back in 2012. We have two new LARGE size jigs to add to the assortment. The new 300 and 400 gram sizes are perfect for dealing with better grade tuna when they're holding deep. Of course they'll also do a number on yellowtail and wahoo if you need to go down to get 'em. Given the deeper water application, we've added our Illuminata feature, the new LARGE size jigs have a recess for use of a 4.5mm light stick. Go deep, get noticed and get bit!

The 300 and 400 gm size Slash lures turned out to be THE best lure for larger grade bluefin in 2014. There was no better lure, and as the guys on the Red Rooster III told folks heading out last summer, "Don't get on the boat without some." They proved their worth as the images below testify. The two smaller weight versions of the jig also performed very well as a cast and retrieve lure, or fished on the slide for schoolie tuna. It's been more often fished as a casting lure for wahoo, but the tuna take 'em too.

 

Our slash bait is available in four sizes this season:
150 gm, 5.29 oz, 6 1/2"
300 gm, 10.6 oz /180mm, 7"
400 gm, 14.11 oz /200mm, 8"

 


 

The Slash became the top producing lure for big bluefin during the 2014 bite, with the 300 and 400 gm sizes being preferred given their fast drop, shape and action.

Fall Flat Jigs
Productive & Popular!

Here's a very effective lure, well proven in 2016. Schoolie tuna, both bluefin and yellowfin will gobble these up.  The Fall Flats are a metal jig that has a slower action on the drop, fluttering like a baitfish that's in shock from being hit by a predator. These are relatively slow drop jigs. We're focusing on their heavier weights at the present time. If you want lighter weights we can certainly get 'em, but really also have that base well covered with a similar jig from Savage Gear (their Squish jigs). The finish of these is quite good, will reflect light well. There are some similar lures out there, so why do we like these?  The weights and finish are consistent to what we were looking for, and the rigging was done right. No cheezy making bait type assist hooks. The hooks used for these jigs are of heavier gauge steel, and a bit larger than what you'd likely see on some other similar products in the marketplace. Pricing is also fair for what's offered. So, we're glad to offer our clients a lure which should be helpful, both for the smaller schoolies and capable of taking much larger tuna under the schoolies with the higher 200 and 250 gm weights.

- Well, the idea of only stocking the 200 & 250 gm sized lures didn't last long... Got quite a few guys stopping by the shop to tell us that we really should be stocking the smaller sizes, so that's what we did. 125/160/200 & 250 gram size Fall Flats are now available, priced at a very reasonable $8.99, 10.99, 11.99 & 13.99 respectively. For 2018, some new heavier sizes were added: 300. 400 and 500 gram (12/14/18 ounces respectively).

Orders over $150 are shipped FREE!* Orders less than $150 are billed for shipping. Upon placing your order you'll receive an immediate confirmation via email. You are not billed at that time, the confirming email may not reflect oversize or overweight charges or other issues requiring direct contact. We process orders manually, preferring to have a human actually check things over and contact you should there be questions. Within 24 hours of placing your order you will receive a follow-up email confirmation and final  invoice (pdf doc) reflecting your total charges (Monday-Friday). You are not billed until we actually send you your final invoice.  Orders shipped to CA addresses will have California Sales Taxes applied, out of state orders are tax free. During the ordering process you can select expedited shipping if required. (Within the USA we usually ship via Federal Express ground. International, and oversize/weight items will be billed for shipping and you will be sent an emailed invoice reflecting total charges prior to actual billing. We will not ship without you having had a chance to review the invoice). Hawaii and Alaska shipping will be accomplished using USPS Priority service, and our standard shipping cost policy will apply unless the item ordered does not fit in their standard size boxes. If additional shipping fees are required we will contact you.)

As a means to reduce spam, we change the above incoming email addresses regularly. 
Please don't bother adding them to your address book.  
We do apologize for any inconvenience this policy creates. But, it's the only way we've found to post an email address on-line and not receive so many solicitations from some family member of a deceased "Nigerian" leader trying to move great sums of  $ out of the country...
