Tady 4/0 TUNA!
Taking Tuna and Wahoo!

Tady made a run of their very popular heavy iron 4/0's in the holographic finish with appropriately heavy single hooks for TUNA.  These are excellent iron to toss at both yellowfin and bluefin, they've taken their share in recent years.  

Tady 4/0's run about 6 ounces. They cast great, and they drop very well. Cast in the direction of the drift and you'll gain appropriate depth by the time you go vertical. Then it's yoyo on the way back up, repeat as necessary...until you get bit!  These finishes get noticed, great daytime lures when the fish aren't coming up to the top for bait.  We have five flavors on tap, purple, green, chrome, gold and mint - left to right in the image.  These are great iron to fish, and when rigged with treble hooks they are dandy for deeper holding yellowtail.  With the meaty singles, they are perfect for tuna and I've seen them nail wahoo as well.  Very strong jigs, and very well made and finished, too.  If you have never tried one, given 'em a go.

Tady BA
Returns to Production

Tady's BA is a yo-yo, heavy iron that's been out of production for about 20 years. They weigh in at 4.5 ounces, and are 4 1/4 inches. Short, fat, heavy and will be well received by both fishermen and fish.  We've been wanting a chunkier piece of iron, Tady's been needing this to round out their line.  Their 4/0's are excellent, but there are times something larger than a TLC and smaller than a 4/0 makes a whole lot of sense. In the picture right you can get a feel for their relative size in comparison to the 4/0.  A tad smaller than a Salas 6X Jr, similar shape to my eye. These newly re-introduced lures run $9.99. We're stocking them in their most successful patterns.

Tady 14A
The Large Size is BACK

Some years ago, back in about 2004 Tady's #15 and 77 were their largest jigs (and 20 years before that they had one even larger the BCL). The heavy 15 in blue chrome was a favorite among long range anglers targeting big yellowfin tuna. One of our clients landed a fish over 270 lbs on one of those jigs.  The 77's were a surface lure, and a good one.  Both of those jigs went away over 10 years ago, and now they are essentially back with the introduction of Tady's 14A. These are 7 inch long lures, available in two weights, the light iron is 3.75 ounces, the heavies are 8.5 oz.  We will stock two of their heavy tuna jigs, a lumo/glow and a blue/chrome with glow back.  Back 10 years, it was the big Tady and the Salas PL68 that got the attention of the long range tuna guys (and fish), but for the past decade Salas' PL68's really had no competition among those fishing cows on iron.  Now there's an option, and a good one at that. And, going a step further, with the larger heavy and light versions (w/treble hooks) we've got another great lure to toss at yellowtail (and of course other fish).

The image right shows a Salas PL68 (white glow) on the left next to the Tady 14A (lumo/glow). The Salas is about 1/2 inch longer and weighs 11.25 oz verses 9.1 oz (weighed with hook - both with an excellent LARGE single hook - Salas is stainless steel Tady a 7691DT Mustad). Tady jigs are produced overseas, and that allows them a few different "holographic" type finishes which we've seen on some of their other irons. Matt Salas makes his jigs here in SoCal, is his own foundry, so he pours the jigs himself.  There's a bit of a difference in the shape of the jigs, and that's reason enough to own both, edges are cut a bit sharper on the Tady's.  We are focusing our attention on the color patterns experienced anglers use most, omitting some of the patterns which are perhaps more targeted towards fishermen than fish. That's subjective on my part, but our long range clients are quite selective and their experience does point to several effective patterns which we'd describe as bread and butter - and the ones most worth owning. We can certainly stock all colors offered by Tady, and we'll gladly get 'em for you should that be your inclination, but we'll focus our inventory and recommendations based upon what we know works with experience to back up the suggested patterns.

Tady Lures
Tady manufactures a wide range of lures, from small TLC's all the way up to the big 15's (note, the 15's went away in 2008, replaced finally in 2017 with the re-introduction of the 14A).  In all, there are ten different models to select from, certain to meet any angler's needs.  We stock several luminous back lures for going deep, as well several of our offerings feature single siwash hooks for wahoo or larger grade tuna.  Tady earned their reputation as a "go to" lure on the local fleet.  Southern California anglers really toss iron a lot, and Tady has long been the brand of choice.  The model 45 and C are long time favorites for surface iron. Their newer model 77 is a larger version of the 45, great for BIG fish on the surface.  For catch and release anglers, we also have several models with "fixed" single hooks, making the release of fish much easier, especially toothy critters like barracuda. Tady also manufactures yoyo style vertical jigging iron. These can be great lures for when the fish are suspended or on the bottom.  Most interesting, there was a big 274 yellowfin taken recently on a long range boat on a Tady 15! (note, the Tady 15 was discontinued about 2008 but has come back with their 2017 release of the 14A).  Several of these yoyo style lures also do quite well swimming back to the boat, so they have a dual purpose.  In the section  below we'll take you through their line-up of products, from surface to deep jigging for rockfish and big grouper. Tady lures, we're glad to have 'em in our mix.  They've got the best range of lures of their type on the market, and the best finishes. No matter where you fish, give them a try.  You'll be tossing iron with confidence when you fish Tady!

Tady A1 - Surface

Tady brought back the A1light iron! This slimmer and trimmer version of the C offers great swimming action, and can be fished well using lighter lines. I like tossing 'em on 20-30#. For barracuda, yellowtail and even dorado this lure can do VERY well. I think a lot of guys on the East Coast will also find it's a very effective lure for stripers and probably will be a lot of fun for blues.

Tady C - Surface

The Tady C is a surface iron anyone can fish.  The C swims great, provides a really nice kick and action.  You really don't have to be an old salt with decades of experience to make 'em swim and get bit.  The C's will get the attention you deserve, without much of a learning curve on your part.  We stock three of the C's in both treble and fixed single hook designs.  The fixed hooks make it easier to release fish you don't plan on keeping.  Locally, the barracuda are a blast on surface iron, the the fixed hooks really make it easier to practice catch and release.

Tady 45 - Surface

There's no more respected surface jig on the market than the venerable Tady 45.  I doubt you'll find any SoCal angler without a half dozen or more in their tackle box.  There really aren't too many fish that won't eat a 45 when you get the speed dialed in.  The 45 swims great in the hands of an experienced fisherman.  There is some skill needed with a 45, you have to get the speed right to really make 'em swim well.  Once you're dialed in, they do GREAT!

Tady TLC - YoYo

Tady's TLC is a delightful chunk of stubby iron to fish.  It really is a trick product.  For the guys in the know, it's also a wonderful white seabass lure.  Pin on a squid (live or dead), then cast it up on the beach.  Swim the lure back, slowly on the bottom, almost like you would if fishing a plastic worm for big freshwater bass. It works well.  This is also a great casting lure, with it's short wind cheating size and relatively heavy weight.  You can fish it vertically, yoyo style, or as described cast and retrieve.

Tady A2 - YoYo or Surface

The A2 is a do anything lure.  You can swim it, vertical jig it, use it cast and retrieve...  It's a very versatile lure that will get a lot of use.  With it's 4 ounce weight, you can cast it a great distance, and with it's swimming action you can achieve some impressive catches.  If the fish are out there, you can cover enough water to really assist filling your sack.  We offer this lure in a couple configurations, with the chrome lures rigged with a single siwash hook for tuna and wahoo, and the painted lures geared more for yellowtail, jacks, and most other species.

Tady AA - YoYo or Surface

The AA is a little lighter than the A2, so it has a little slower drop when you use it as a cast and retrieve lure.  It swims well, also can be used yoyo style with a little softer flutter than the AA.  It's a dandy yellowtail lure, and you can really work water column well with this design.  It's also quite economical, not too hard on the budget, but it's murderous on fish!

Tady #9 - YoYo or Surface

Tady's #9 is another lure that works well cast and retrieve or vertically in the yoyo style.  It's a fatter bodied lure than the A2 or AA jigs so it's flutter on the drop is fairly soft.  Again, it does well for a wide range of fish, jigged off the bottom or worked through the water column. 

The lure pictured right is unfortunately no longer made. It was made from brass and that's not produced due to cost at present. However, we have worked with Tady to come up with some other single hook tuna lures (which also work great for other species such as cabrilla).

Tady 4/0 - YoYo

Tady's big 4/0 is a lure named after the size reel it's most commonly fished with.  It's meaty, big and heavy.  You can toss it a mile with your 4/0 reel, even if you aren't comfortable casting this size reel.
