Tormenter

Some folks don't go in much for trolling, but as a dedicated private boater I sure do enjoy the troll.  It's a prospecting thing.  Probably a carry-over from my childhood, heading out to the desert with my dad looking for arrowheads and other artifacts.  It's the search, the surprise of finding what you're looking for (much like me looking for my cell phone in the morning given my young son's predilection for absconding with the device...), rigging things the right way, having the right patterns in the spread, and then HOOK-UP!  Finding 'em is almost as much fun as catching 'em, at times even more fun.  We're very happy to introduce you to Tormenter.  They make some dandy lures, both for trolling and for sight casting or drop-back use. Tormenter lures are made offshore, but are an American owned firm.  Please check the full listing of lures on this page, they've got some great stuff you  don't want to miss.

 

Big Game Lures

Tormenter has a good design philosophy when it comes to making lures. Keep it simple, keep it focused on proven designs and patterns, and make the pricing aggressively affordable. In my mind, they do more than that. Their big game lures can be compared to other name brand specialty lures that cost three times the money. No better evidence of that comes from comparing their abalone head lures like the new Big Mouth and Pearl Diver. Their competition runs $69-99, yet these lures cost 1/3 of that rate! The lures are high quality, with nicely polished heads and good quality double skirts.

For 2014 Tormenter made some significant improvements to their lure offered here: the Big Mouth and Pearl Divers. These lures now are double skirted, colors improved, but no changes to their excellent head design and materials. There's no better producing, better valued abalone head on the market.
 

Big Mouth

The Big Mouth is another proven design from Tormenter, at a truly exceptional value. It's a true Abalone head lure in a chugger design, with a huge concave head for greater commotion on the surface. Big splashes, big attention, voracious strikes! Eleven inches in length and 1.5 inches in diameter, this lure gets noticed and is well worth running. Consider running one right down the middle with swimmers tighter on the corners.

The lures are available rigged and unrigged. Custom rigged lures feature a properly sized single Mustad hook rigged on mono leader from Momoi or Izorline, though double hook rigs or fluorocarbon leaders are available if desired at an increased cost (just let us know your preference).

Pearl Diver

The Pearl Diver is a true Abalone head lure in a swimming design, eleven inches in length and 1.2 inches in diameter. It's a trusted head shape, and the shell head finish has proven itself very effective for many, many years for enticing Marlin to open their mouths and take a bite. If you've priced abalone head lures recently you can easily recognize the value here, plus we sell these lures custom rigged as an option if you don't want to rig 'em yourself! There's no better value on the market for a lure of this type. Unrigged you'll find similar lures running at $50 or more.

Mullet Head

Rigged and Ready Lifelike Trolling Lures for Tuna, Marlin and more.

 1" x 9" 5 ounces

The Mullet Head is a wonderful lure for a wide range of gamefish. The head is a proven design, with a nice upgrade in cosmetics within the polished resin head. We stock the lure in four successful patterns, all well worth owning. The value is unmatched, rigging is done here in USA rather than overseas, stainless steel single hook, leader is 200# Momoi, hooks properly spaced, skirts tied and glued.

Softy Chain

Rigged and Ready Lifelike Trolling Lures for Tuna and Dorado.

 Five Piece Softy Chain, rigged on 130# Momoi with 8/0 Stainless Steel Hook

This productive lure gets noticed and gets bit. The lures are packed in a nice bag to keep things organized and protected. These soft bodied lures feature pusher heads for the four teasers and a chugger head for the rigged trailer. The commotion created by the lures attracts attention. Dorado love lures like this, no doubt, but tuna also will jump on 'em - both yellowfin and albacore.

Baby Squid Softy Chain

Five Piece Softy Chain, rigged on 130# Momoi with 6/0 Stainless Steel Hook

Dragging Hoochi Chains is very productive, and this is the best of the lot in our opinion for Albacore tuna and more. The Baby Squid Softy Chain features a small chugger rigged for action with four small hoochies in front to grab some attention. Chains are absolutely the best way for a private boater to get noticed, chains and spreader bars are basic tools, with the chains being the easiest to have in the spread. The more lures you have behind you the more reason for a tuna to come up and grab a bite. Simple math for the tuna, the more bait the easier to grab a morsel. These chains are good ones, and their price is wonderful! At about $12 you can't find a better value, they are productive and will help put some fish on the boat.

Super Smoker

Wahoo, Tuna and more...

 1" x 11" 9 ounces

The Super Smoker is a five hole jet head chromed lure made for wahoo. Certainly it will take other species, but for wahoo its a great high speed trolling lure. The lures are rigged in the USA on 400# stainless steel cable with a tandem SS hook rig. They are packaged in a breathable protective pouch to help keep things organized. We stock the lures in their most effective patterns, all well worth dragging behind your boat on on a long range sportfisher.

Tormenter Looney Birds

Private boaters need every advantage they can get, and when you are trolling for tuna or other gamefish, use of a "bird" in front of your lure is a great way to gain some added attraction. Additionally, when trolling multiple lines, sometimes with a couple way back, use of birds aids greatly in keeping an eye on your lure's placement. Birds do work, and they are well worth running in front of your trolling feathers and jigs. Tormenter has long made some nice products for this use, and their newest models are by far the best they've made. There are two sizes available, a 5 and 7 inch bird. The 5 incher has a hole running through the lure's body, thru which you'll simply insert your trolling line, and then run a snap swivel at the rear. Some guys will make use of a bead prior to the snap swivel. Then it's simple enough to switch out colors as needed. The Seven inch lure is rigged a bit differently, with a stainless steel rod going through the lure's body - a ring on the front for attaching your main line and a quality ball bearing snap swivel on the rear. These are some very nice products, and well worth dragging behind your boat and in front of your tuna feathers or cedar plug. These attractor birds  will improve your catch under most conditions. I'm a believer, you will be too when you make use of these well proven designs.
