Roberts Lures Ranger!
A New Product
for some, and an Old Favorite for many!
Here's a product we think you'll find quite
interesting, if you're unfamiliar. We've now been
selling these lures since 2008, so I guess
they're not really a new product for us any
longer. But, for a lot of West Coast guys they
are a new item.
is a wonderful lure, being "found out" about
by more and more anglers. We used to carry the
lure, marketed by a fellow who specialized in
catching Roosters and many other species from
shore. The guy was a bit of a legend, and the last
we heard from him was that he'd moved down
south...Mexico. Well, while the lure was known
among the small circle of rooster fish afficianados, we had a hard time selling 'em. This
was about 10 years ago. However, on the East Coast
the Roberts Lure has been a standard for catching
stripers, and more.
we're seeing more and more folk traveling to parts
of the world where focusing on Roosters has become
an obsession. And, more recently our long
range anglers have discovered just how effective
these lures can be for yellowtail. The lures work
GREAT for yellowtail, you can swim 'em, and it
seems Mexican yellowtail just can't get enough of
this unfamiliar lure. Re-rig the lure for some
great fun on wahoo, as well. (Use a Mustad 7691 or
similar, an Owner Open Eye in 7 or 8/0 sizes, or a
BIG 5/0 Owner Treble to upgrade the hooks to
something heavier or better suited for different
applications. Some do this as a matter of
course, though the supplied hooks are quite
adequate for most applications). Skip 'em along
the surface or let 'em drop down a bit than then
retrieve. You'll find that Roberts Rangers have a
wide range of fish they'll catch, and are well
worth owning. We stock some great patterns of
Roberts Rangers, in two sizes, 2 1/4 and 3 ounces.
Luhr Jensen's Krocodile
spoon is a classic. Folks catch everything
from bass, yellowtail, barracuda, bonito,
yellowfin, even halibut with these versatile
lures. They are also a dandy thing to bring
along with you if you are fortunate enough to
fish Baja, for fishing from shore or a boat.
I'm stocking what I consider the three best
colors, day in day out: a reflective
silver/chrome prism, blue or green mackerel
pattern over bright silver/chrome. These
patterns are available in three different
sizes ranging from 1 ounce to 2 1/4 ounces.
These simple spoons really are a great bait.
Want to make 'em even better and longer
lasting? That's an easy trick, replace their
stock treble hook once it gets a bit rusted
and well abused with one of Owner's new
trebles. All you need are some split rings and
the appropriate hook. You'll have even
better hook-sets and better corrosion
resistance, for a long long time! The
Kroc is probably the most efficient lure you
can buy. They'll last an eternity and
catch an awful lot of fish through the years.
carried some larger sized Krocs in the past.
Luhr Jensen is no longer able to make the
bigger lures. These are all made from Brass,
and the cost has escallated to the point where
the lures would have cost well over $20
each...closer to $30. So, the big 7 ouncers
Toro Tamer's Top
Jigs for deep water are effective, super
effective lures. Their shape allows for a nice
swim on the drop, and they'll take a wide
range of gamefish - a very wide range. Some
use them to great effect on tuna, yellowtail, and of course
there's no rockfish that won't jump on 'em, same for ling
cod. We've made our Banana jigs in three finishes, chrome,
gold and luminescent glow, and they're available in four sizes: 100 gm / 3.5
oz / 5", 200 gm / 7 oz /6", 300 gm / 10.6 oz / 6 1/2",
400 gm /
14.1 ounces / 7".
Compared to similar lures on the
market, we've upgraded the hooks used on our
jigs. We run a single Mustad hook on the
smallest size and 3X Mustad black chrome
trebles on the larger sizes. All hooks are
attached by way of split ring, and we add a
swivel to the nose of the lure to deal with
line twist. Nice lures folks, I'm sure you'll
agree the first time you see 'em and even more
certain once you fish 'em. Given they're our
own production, the pricing is very user
friendly, as well.
For our long range
anglers, or those on the East Coast targeting
larger grade tuna, consider rigging up the
200, 300, or 400 gm size lures with single
hooks of appropriate strength. Certainly the
go-to lure color in this regard, for those
times when the fish are holding deep, is the
luminescent banana, though the chrome or gold
will prove effective in their own right. The lumo is a
personal favorite of mine, however.
We offer single hook rigging as an option
below. This makes a very effective alternative
to a Salas PL68. PIctured, Peter Doherty
stopped by our San Diego shop on the way
down to PV to fish aboard the Maximus. The
Banana turned a pretty good trick for him as
the pics testify.
The Lumo models are what we'll
maintain going forward, we've discontinued
the chrome and gold colored jigs. The glow bananas proven very
effective on this side of the sea for folks
targeting a wide range of bottom fish, but
also TUNA, BIG LONG RANGE TUNA. The Lumo
model imitates a squid, and that's something
the fish love to munch when available.
That's probably why we had such a huge
demand for these jigs in the 200 and 300
sizes last fall and summer. On the new production of
the Lumo/Glow Banana Jigs we made a couple
changes to the hook placement, moving the
hooks to the heavy side of the jig for the
300 and 400 gm sizes. This will result in
less tangles on a deeper drop. The image at
the top of this section shows that change in
rigging. For the smaller sizes hook
placement stays put on the lighter side of
the jig allowing for better casting and
jigs work, for a variety of gamefish. Finding a good diamond jig is
not always an easy thing however. The folks at P-Line have finally
brought out a lure that was about 2 years in producing. I don't know
why it took 'em so darn long, but I do know we've been talking about
'em for a much longer time that you'd think.
They really are a pretty simple lure to fish, and they are
productive. P-Line did add a new wrinkle to the old standby design. P-Line's lure designers
used the time well, arriving at a uniquely finished lure that
stands out from your basic Diamond Jig. As the picture shows, they
are not your basic chrome dipped lure. The new lures feature a
holographic finish that should prove long lived, and catch the eye
of a hungry fish.
ToroTamer Slash - Cast and Rip Bait
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
lure can be fished several ways, cast and
retrieve, vertical yo-yo style
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
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: 100 gm, 3.5 oz, 5 1/2"
150 gm, 5.29 oz, 6 1/2"
300 gm, 10.6 oz
/180mm, 7" 400 gm, 14.11 oz /200mm,
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.
original Bridgeport lure, from Bead Tackle, Inc. Jigs are probably the most
versatile and effective fish producers ever made. They can be cast, trolled or
worked near the surface or close to the bottom where gamefish spend 90% of their
time. Here's how to get the most from your jigs:
Surface: Look for weed patches, birds diving,
jumping bait fish. Cast the jig beyond the working fish. Bring through the
school or by the weeds using sharp jerks so the jig will rise and fall as it moves through
Bottom: Fish below
working birds, around fish-attracting structure like river mouths, rips, wrecks.
Lower the jig to the bottom by free-spooling your reel. Engage the reel when the jig
hits bottom and work 2/-5' off bottom by raising and lowering the the rod tip
sharply. If bottom is free of obstructions you may try letting the jig rest on
bottom for a moment or two before jerking it up.
