Toro Tamer Sportfishing Products

SOFT Tako
Soft Bodied Octopus
for Jigging and Cast/Retrieve use

Check our Clearance Page...

Well, here we go again with a unique lure sure to bring joy to fishermen and fish on the deck! We're happy to introduce our new Toro Tamer SOFT TAKO lures just in time for the summer season. We have these unique lures produced in four sizes and five color patterns. The lures are priced right, and they will offer anglers something that fish haven't seen much of, but something that's a tasty treat for all species of fish, OCTOPUS!

How to fish 'em: First thing, make use of some good scent like Hot Sauce, Uni-Butter, Pro Cure, Smelly Jelly. All these things can make a difference in how long the fish will accept an imitation bait and they all are effective in this regard. Consider how an octopus moves, and mimic that action. There are times an octopus will slowly creep along the bottom, and there are times they are fired up and in flight moving pretty darn quickly to get away from another predator. So, in reality you can fish these lures a few different ways. We experimented fishing them as we would a knife jig vertically and we also fished 'em as we would a swim bait, and I have to say we got bit both ways. If the water was cooler, we found greater success fishing 'em slow along the bottom, and that makes sense too. So, please try different things, vary your presentation and make use of a good scent or squid strip on the lure. If you spend the time, you will be rewarded!

The new lures are available in some very attractive colors, Orange, Purple Haze, DEEP Purple, White and Chartreuse. The come in four weights, 24 gm (.85 oz), 46 gm (1.6 oz), 85 gm (~3 oz) and 110 gm (4 oz) weights, with lengths of 90, 110, 130 and 150 mm.

All lures feature a double hook arrangement, with both single and treble hooks rigged for sure hookups.

Got a quick report from one of the guys who fished 'em the week they arrived. As you can see, the calico bass inhaled the critter:
 

Its always a blast talking to you at the shop John. Here are those pics of my bass on the orange soft Tako. Hopefully I will have more to send you over this weekend. Ill be in later this week to get some more of these awesome and unique baits. Thanks again.  -Andrew G.

These things are catching calico bass like crazy guys, well worth jumping on 'em!

Toro Tamer Bucktail Jigs

Bucktail jigs are workhorses, productive for a wide variety of fish, and successfully fished in a few different styles. They can be used cast and retrieve and vertically. They can be dragged along the bottom, they can be used with a slab from fresh cut bait, with a curly tail grub, bottom line they are flexible producers of gamefish. Over the past 15 years we've stocked some wonderful bucktails from several manufacturers, SPRO, P-Line and ProFishCO. Every one of them had some characteristics we liked, and some features we desired to see...but didn't. Sadly, two of those suppliers stopped production of their lures. So, ToroTamer came along and made their own, based on what we wanted to see.

At our shop in Huntington Beach we are fortunate to have a very talented private boater, Beta, who is one of the best white seabass fishermen I know. Several years ago he began using a jig (that I'll claim credit to introducing him to) a simple bucktail jig. Beta fished 'em with a fresh dead squid and found it was perfection, almost a do-nothing bait that was his most productive secrete weapon for WSB. There were two problems, the hook could be improved, and even more of a problem, the supplier for the jig went out of business. ToroTamer's design is not unique, far from it, it's simply a refinement of an already very good lure - and it's made with the right kind of skirting and right kind of hook. There are four color patterns available for the jigs, white, glow, red and white and blue and white. The lures all feature a fishskin with unique UV properties and glow. All lures are hand tied, and then reinforced so that they'll hold up well. For those of you who know the productivity of bucktail jigs and are familiar with their use, you'll find plenty of things to appreciate with these designs. To those new to fishing a bucktail, put some time in fishing them and you will discover a new go-to lure for sure.
