4/21/2019 - Welcome to our Weekly Specials, something we try to post each Sunday. Happy Easter!

First off, I'd like to thank those who offered our new office gal encouragement and kind words last week. They meant a lot and helped reduce the stress associated with a fast paced job and new responsibilities. My wife Nadiya joined us at CharkBait as a full timer last week. She survived week one! If you get a call from a gal with an accent, be nice, it's my wife.  She joins my oldest son working here, who's been earning his keep since Jr. High. Yep, CharkBait is officially a mom and pop operation, with a lot of help from our friends.  This weeks specials offer up some wonderful reels, three from Okuma and one from Penn, new lures, tackle storage and accessory items of special note. Some very nice products with us salty-types in mind.

As always, thank you for visiting our Weekly Specials and hope to see you at the shop!

Sincerely,
Mark Smith


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 credit card's 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, confirm stock availability 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 you order on-line, and we'll need your cvc number.  It may be an inconvenience, but it's a whole lot better than the potential problems associated with unauthorized credit card use. 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...by a vender I trusted. I'm still on the hook for over 20K You can not count on your bank's help, but you can limit your exposure. Think about that next time you order from an on-line retailer who holds your credit card information.  We don't do business that way. We treat our clients like we'd like to be treated, thus the added security. We apologize for any inconvenience, but let me say that's minor compared to having your card used fraudulently...  When you order from us, you will hear back from a real, live person, who will confirm your order, provide delivery time, shipping information, and then with your approval we'll bill and ship the goods. We're not amazon, we're a specialty saltwater retailer with a staff that knows fishing and how to improve your success.

Special #1

OKUMA METALOID 5NII
12NII & 12II
Two Speed Performance - SAVE $60-80
The Best Value in offshore oriented reels, got even better...
(while supply lasts)

These reels represent the best buy we've made in 20 years.  We literally cleared out Okuma's warehouse,  bought them all, and no one can match these smoking deals. This purchase was our single largest buy in 20 years, well over $200,000, over three pallets of fantastic reels. The value of these reels was the best in the industry at their regular price, with our buy the deal became even more of a "no brainer" value that's packed with performance.  No plastic fantastic stuff here, these all metal reels offer exceptional performance and they are all two-speeds! If you've never owned a two speed reel, now is your chance, and once you fight a fish on a reel with this feature you'll understand why a lot of folks consider it essential. To top things off, please note that these reels offer a three year manufacturer's warranty - while the standard warranty in fishing reels is one year.

Okuma's Metaloid series has been a fantastic winner for this major league firm.  The 5 and 5 narrow two speeds are among the most useful reels a person can own, all metal construction, powerful two speed gearing, capable of taking large fish, and with a fantastic 3 year parts and labor warranty from the manufacturer. These reels were made to retail well under market at only $229, easily $100+ under their competition.  Save $60-70 with our offer on these very capable reels now.  They are rugged, capable, worthy of owning for many, many years to come.  For those targeting larger fish, wanting to fish 50, 60 even 80# lines, the 12's become the reel of choice and the value even stronger with a regular price of $299 and our sale price of $219, a savings of $80! Save big on our limited stock, it gets no better for two speed reels, made from metal not plastic.

One piece frame and left sideplate, 6061 T6 Machined aluminum frame and sideplates. The reels are cold forged (same process as the infamous bike makers $500 models...), type 2 anodized. The spools are made from machined aluminum. They feature a corrosion resistant coating process as well as the anodizing for dealing with saltwater corrosion issues. All reels in the series offer 4 ball bearings and best of all they offer 17-4 grade stainless steel helical cut gears!. The drag system benefits from Cal's drag grease and Carbonite drag washer. All models offer a loud clicker, and the freespool performance is simply amazing. Two speed reels of this level of quality command respect, ask folks that own them how much they value their purchase. They compete well at their regular price, they compete very well if they were $50 over that price when you look at other reels from other firms.  At the price we have them, they qualify as a no-brainer purchase. The Metaloids are wonderful reels to own long term, easily the best value in a conventional reel we've seen in over a decade...if not more.

Nothing is forever. This was a huge buy, but it has it's limits. Don't let this deal pass you by, and if you have friends getting into saltwater fishing, let 'em know about this offer. It's the best reel deal we've seen in well over 10 years time.

For 2017, ICAST introduction, the new 12N II speed is a piece we've wanted to see since we first played with the Metaloid series reels. The 12N is like an Avet JX in terms of size, or a Newell 332 for those with a memory. Perfect size, good line capacity using 50-80# braid as a backing and fishing the piece as your 50-60# needs require.  For what it's worth, the new reels came into our stock the day I came back from our five day Red Rooster charter - 2016. If you watch the video of that trip you'll see one of the guys, probably more than one, fishing the smaller Metaloid 5II for bluefin tuna ranging from about 75-100 lbs. For the 12N, bump that fish weight up a bit (I've seen 150lb bluefin taken on them), it's a very capable reel, and now two years after it's first introduction we can also say it's a reliable fish catcher that's also a rather incredible value. 12N pictured in black and silver bottom right image. These were incredible values at $299, we have done something rather extraordinary in terms of their retail price to end the year on a high note...

 

TWO Speed, Metal Construction, very good Carbon Fiber drag, good conservative match for 20-40# lines on the 5's, and 50-60# on the 12's. Most folks will run braid at one line class heavier then their leader on these reels, so 50# braid as backing for 40# mono, 60-80# braid for 50-60# mono topshot...

Special #2
Daiwa Saltiga!
T
he Return of the Star Drag Saltigas!
Frankly, the best star drags ever produced...

At ICAST 2015 Daiwa showed off two new Star Drag Saltiga series reels, the first of what became a full line of star drag pieces offered in the USA market by this prestigious Japanese manufacturer. At ICAST 2016 Daiwa followed up with what we were hoping for, their new larger sized Saltiga Star Drag Reels - completing the series. Since that time the Saltiga Stars have again proven their point, they are the definitive Star Drag Reel.

The first two reels which came into inventory at Daiwa's warehouse in California were the 10. In my estimation, these first new reels will have a fairly narrow application among our clients given the limited line capacity (for the model 10), but they point to some important new features and the future for Daiwa's high end reels. It's also fair to note, that our images do look different from what you will find on other sites, we actually have the reels in stock, take our own photos proving that point - and don't simply rely on the manufacturers website to pull photos...

Daiwa's older Saltiga star drag reels were, at least in my opinion, some of the nicest star drag reels ever produced, and we were sad to see them go away. The machining was nicer than anything else on the market, and they performed wonderfully. These new reels take that series to a new level. The new Saltiga Star drags come with a Magsealed ball bearing in addition to their 7 Corrosion Resistant Stainless Steel Ball Bearings (CRBB) and 1 Roller Bearing. It's a 9 bearing reel, quality bearings throughout. The Mag sealed bearings are similar to what we've seen in high end audio gear, the technology has been used for professional loudspeakers, great for dissipating heat and adding longevity to hard driven drivers. In the world of fishing, some similar benefits, with the addition of elimination of saltwater intrusion.

The reels feature a precision machined housing, one piece machined aluminum frame and right side plate, machined aluminum spool, with a spool lock mechanism to pretect gears when engaged. There's no spool clicking sound, silent. Also, Daiwa makes use of their Ultimate Tournament carbon drag, boasting 15.4 lbs of drag - and given this is a star drag, all of the drag is useable without degrading freespool performance. The reels come with a very nice reel cover. Overall, I'll say that Daiwa is introducing some very nice reels these days, and more to come. This is just the fist of their 2016 introductions.

NEW MAGSEALED BALL BEARING

NEW Zillion Type HD models feature the Magsealed ball
bearing. Magnetic oil bridges the gap between the inner
and outer bearing races—keeping the elements out.

CORROSION RESISTANT BALL BEARINGS

Last up to 12 times longer than standard stainless steel
ball bearings.

 

Very compact design, large oversized gears for power, excellent machining and performance.

The reel shown below is the 15 size, 10's above. The 15 offers the same physical dimensions as the 10, the difference is the arbor of the spool, not as large/fat so the line capacity increases.

SALTIGA 35H BELOW

We have the new larger sized Saltiga Series reels in our inventory now. Picked the 35, 40 and 50's up from Daiwa's warehouse at the tail end of November - and they are SUPER!!! Exactly what we'd hoped to see - the nicest machining in the business, smooth as silk, refined.

These reels can be called Jigging Reels, compete very well with the more esoteric and overpriced reels we've seen come from China under different names (Maxel, Ocean Master, etc.). The difference is that Daiwa is a big time name, a real company, U.S. regional service and support, warranty...

The new reels feel exceptional, no handle slop, anti-reverse is perfect in design and application. The larger sizes do far more than jig, they are great reels for fishing bait, long distance casting and of course working jigs and iron.

Okuma SURF 8K
Long Cast Spinning Reel
Reduced Price SUPER BRAID RIGGING

Honestly, we really don't spend much time looking at low end reels here. Their disposable nature moves our focus to something hopefully longer lived. BUT, there are times when we miss something special, and I'm admitting I did just that by skipping over this reel when first announced. Okuma's Surf 8K is indeed something special, and I'm offering that I blew this one, didn't recognize it for what it was - a very nice reel for a person seeking extra casting distance from a surf spinner while trying to keep the budget down. Why a long cast spool, the line comes off better for distance casts, less lip overhang.  Okuma is getting stronger in the niche pieces to complement their bread and butter more general purpose rods and reels.

There's a lot to talk about on this unique reel. You get an on/off auto trip bait feeding system, dual force drag, carbon drag washers, brass Dual Force Drag and spool shaft stabilizer, corrosion resistant stainless steel bearings, quick set anti-reverse bearing for zero back play in handle. Corrosion resistant casting process, machined aluminum screw in handle, slow oscillation system for improved line lay, corrosion resistant graphite body and rotor, hydro block water tight drag seal, machined aluminum spool...and a 1 year warranty. Yep, lots of features and that's surprising at this price level. The reel is robust, and it's long cast design makes it something of interest for our surf focused fisherman.  Beta, our Huntington Beach shop manager actually "discovered" this reel when preparing for a Costa Rica trip.  Costa Rica is becoming his target location for fishing, and likely retirement down the road. He was looking for a couple useful rods and reels for his last trip and stumbled upon this one. Bought it, used it, can recommend it strongly. The reel is a serious value, and offers serious performance, and only runs $100! That makes it something very attractive for opportunistic fisherman looking to take advantage of surf fishing options while on a vacation.  Grab this reel, one of Okuma's Nomad traveling Surf rods or one of the Toro Surf Explorer models while available... You have yourself a wonderful companion for almost any vacation, and with a travel rod to match you can travel with peace of mind knowing your gear will arrive in fishable condition. 

Back to Beta, he also brought down some longer rods in a strong secure rod case. Sure enough, the baggage checkers ruined all of his rods! Broken guides on each one piece rod he brought down, when TSA opened up the case and put it back together, incorrectly, the handlers stripped guides off all rods...except his travel rods which traveled in their own small cases. Not the way one would like to be greeted upon reaching your destination on a well planned fishing trip. If it weren't for the travel rods he would have been one grumpy guy, as it was a vacation was salvaged because he had the travel rods.  Back to the reel: In my estimation it's a $200 reel being sold at $100, could be the perfect take-along for a vacation.

Penn International
Lever Drag Reels
FREE SUPER BRAID RIGGING

Penn's newest International reels were first shown at ICAST 2017.  Penn's new line does indeed represent a significant improvement over what they've been supplying in the past. The VISX models compete with the top echelon of long range oriented reels. These are the best reels Penn has ever produced from a long range perspective - relatively light, high drag capability, excellent freespool performance, USA made!

The older generation reels were excellent for what they were intended to do, trolling duty. But, at the rail there were other large game reels which killed them. Penn could not compete, that was clearly indicated by folks targeting cow sized tuna on the long range fleet.  Avet's Pro series set the standard back in 2005 and they've kept improving.  And, for those wanting to fish the USA standard - Penn - Cal Sheets got a fair amount of business improving and enhancing those tanks. Then came Okuma's Makaira series, as we were first to announce, the Makaira series reels were game changers for the industry. That was proven fact. Penn went back to the drawing board, hard, and I will suggest copied several design aspects of the Makaira and Avet Raptor design (pull vs push, silent dogs...).  That's easily confirmed by anyone who does a side by side comparison and pushes the lever and turns the handle. The guys at Penn spent their time well, the new VISX series in the International line-up stand on their own, they are excellent reels.   

We are including a very nice dry-pack backpack in RealTree camo with the purchase of a Penn International reel. You can still grab Penn's Dufflebag promo (link at top of page) in addition to the bag we're including! So, off the top you get a couple promo pieces worth over $100 on top of the free braid rigging which we supply. So, you can figure (if you go hollowcore) about $180 or so worth of incentives to sweeten your purchase of a wonderful new reel. That's a pretty good incentive to get off the fence and grab a new reel.

Nomad RIPTIDE
NEW Casting Lures

The Riptide is a new lure for us, and a very interesting piece, for sure.  This one is a cast and retrieve lure, the 105 being a fast sinking, long cast stickbait type lure.  It's designed to be the ultimate sub surface lure with a side to side wobble on the sink. This lure has internal weights, adding to the side to side wobble effect.  When fished in a walk the dog style retrieve the lure will turn nearly 180 degrees!  It can be fished fast or slow, in rough or calm waters. Versatility is a key aspect to this lure's design. Of course it's thru wired, and very tough. It is the toughest little stickbait made and up to any challenge. 

That's mostly the manufacturer's pitch on the lure.  I'll add, it's reminiscent of the old bungee fall type lures, great producers tossed on the slide. Gosh I wish for some albacore down here in SoCal...  For our Pacific Northwest and East Coast clients, this lure begs to be tossed to albies!  Yellowfin, sure bet and I'd approach use of the lure the same way, on the slide, as a cast and retrieve bait, working the water column.  So many ways to put this little gem to good use...! The Riptide 105 weighs 1.3 ounces and is 4" in length. It's a tasty morsel for sure. It's going to catch a wide range of fish, no doubt, and it certainly caught the attention of the guys working here. We all want to go fishing and give it a go.

Zuker
for Tuna!

Zuker Grass Skirts - Zuker's Grass Skirts may not look like all that much, but they act differently when dragged thru the water behind a boat. The lure's body is filled with a coarse nylon material instead of the more traditional feathers. This material first gained poularity as a skirt material behind their Z1 heads, targeting wahoo. The material was more durable than traditional feather and plastic skirts. But, there were some other gains with the material, a better and more noticeable trail. They get bit very well! My first reaction to the lure was pure apathy. Frankly, it's not a very attractive bait. That's why I didn't bring it into our stock initially when I first started CharkBait. Boy was I wrong. I began getting a lot of feedback from some of our Northern California clients about it's effectiveness.  So I reluctantly brought them in.  Southern California tuna fishermen who followed the internet heard of their success up the coast, tried 'em, and quickly started boiling on these lures like a bunch of tuna feeding on a bait ball. The green/yellow pattern became a much favored "afternoon" go-to lure.

Down deep where it counts, the Zuker "broom" is a beautiful lure. It catches fish! The lure proved it's worth, many times over several seasons, so I'm now stocking them in good supply, and expanding the color selection. The ZG presents a different look and feel to a fish, there may be a different sonic characteristic as well. For some strange reason, this lure was among the most productive trolling lures for albacore tuna for many years now, and yellowfin follow 'em just as well and bite every bit as aggressively as the long fins. If you don't have any in your trolling pack, be sure to pick a couple up, they are very much worth putting in the water. No questions about it, it's a very good trolling lure, for both albacore and yellowfin tuna.

The upgrade lures are of limited availability, but we do try to keep them in stock - not always easy.

Duran Fishing Products
Problem Solved
2019 New Product Introduction

Here we go again...

One of the most enjoyable aspects to running this business is working with new manufacturers on the way up. Duran Fishing Products is a great example, a small machining company with some very good creative ideas.  The DFP Standard Clamp is their first product, and they have another one coming soon.  For those of us who have bought or wanted to buy one of the newer low profile baitcasters, like Okuma's Komodo, Daiwa Lexa, or some other nameless bike manufacturers large baitcasters, the reel's design leaves out something that most of us want to have - a reel clamp.  It's a profound positive, a requirement, when we fish heavier line tests, and these new designed baitcasters with series drag capability are made to fish heavy. They beg for a clamp, but it's not available from the reel's manufacture. As the line test increases, a clamp becomes more necessary. Many of us have seen what happens when a reel flies off a reel seat and breaks rod guides on it's way to the deep... A reel clamp is mandatory, not optional, should you wish to put one of these reels on a deckhand style rod.

Every manufacturer missed this key angler need, but there were a few firms that ran with the ball, at lest for a while.  Daiwa had a $55 clamp assembly, but they discontinued it. Tiburon has one, but it's only good on one model of a particular manufacturers reel - isn't universal and won't work on lefty reels. This is something different. The Duran clamp is made to fit well over 40 different reels!

In the past there have been several manufacturers who have come to market wih a clamp assembly for use with these new reels, but they've not been compatible across the different reels. What worked for a Lexa would not work on a a Tranx or Komodo. And, to further complicate things, what worked on a right hand retrieve reel would NOT work on a lefty. Ed Duran, the fellow behind these products, solved all those issues. As you can see from the image below, we set up a Lexa 400 lefty with the clamp, works just fine as does the right hand retrieve version.

This patent pending clamp is the most versatile clamping system on the market. It will fit OVER 40 different reels! All components of the DFP Clamp are precision CNC machined out of aircraft grade billet 6061 aluminum, making the single frame design strong and sturdy. All components contain 3D machined surfaces that allow for more contact with the reel foot and rod, providing stronger clamping force. The anodized finish provides resitance to wear and the harsh effects of saltwater, and they look great, too. Even with reels that offer a clamp, you may find yourself running this clamp assembly instead given the way it holds your reel onto the rod. In terms of compatibility, this new design clamp will fit shimano Tranx 400/500, Daiwa Lexa 400, Okuma Komodo 400 series, Torium 14-40, Penn Fathoms, Avet LX/JX/HX, Daiwa Saltist and Saltiga...and many more.

 

We have a couple pdf's for you to check:

The DFP Standard will fit the vast majority of rods on the market, however if you have an old-school FAT rod, say a Seeker 6480 or an Ulua, you'l need a larger sized clamp. Don't worry, machining has been completed, a larger size is coming soon. But, that's a limited application piece, if your rod is fat you'd need it, otherwise don't go that direction because it's compatibility is more limited.  We'll have these available in a month or so if you need. But, for now, let's rejoice in what we have! We've been looking long and hard for something like this with more compatibility between manufacturers, and we're glad to say we found it in Ed Duran's new DFP Clamp.

TORO TAMER HOLLOWCORE
SPLICEBLE SUPER BRAID
BUY A SPOOL AND GET A FREE RIGGING NEEDLE KIT!
LOWER PRICES ON 40-200# HollowCore 16 Strand Braid

Here's a deal that has no equal. ToroTamer's 16 strand hollowcore line is the best of it's type on the market, easy to work with, smooth and strong. Those are not idle boasts, we are happy to guarantee this fact with replacement or credit should you not agree fully. Toro Tamer is also the only producer of hollowcore in both 12 and 16 strand forms, and the only braid supplier who can make 20 and 30# sized spliceable braid. For 2015 Toro is also the only firm to produce their own rigging needles. With respect to the lines, the 16 stand is easier to rig, absolutely preferred for making wind-ons, while the 12 strand has some advantages for reel fills - it's packs a bit more on a given reel and costs less, too. But, make no mistake, the best line Toro produces is their 16 strand. This week, or as stock allows, we have a great offer to bring to your attention. Buy a 1000 meter spool (about 1100 yards) of the 16 strand and get a free braid rigging needle set! (actually you'll be billed for 1 cent) Yep, your pick of either the 7 or 9 piece needle kit when you buy one 1000 meter (~1100 yd) spool of the 16 strand spliceable super braid! That's a savings of at least $60 or more (and if you compare the price of Toro's rigging needles the value is more like $100)!

Since it's introduction Toro's higher end 16 strand braid has gone thru significant improvements. It always was super easy to work with, opening up easily for in-line rigging (leader within the braid, knotless style). Over the past few years diameters have dropped meaning line capacity on a guys reels has increased. For example, I used to get 600 yds of 130# on my Avet 50 narrows, now I can get 750-800 yds and have enough room for use of wind-on leaders. Fibers have improved, and our own economies of scale have improved with our factories. The 40-200 lb lines used to run $220 for 1000 meters (1100 yds). The price has come down $20, so fishermen get an even better product for a lower price. That's a wonderful thing, uncommon in a world where we're getting too darn used to getting less for more! With Toro in 2019 you get more for less!!!

Toro Tamer® 16 STRAND HOLLOW CORE SUPER BRAID
The New Best in Class Spliceable Super Braid
®

Toro Tamer's 16 strand Hollow Core line, offers anglers the easiest to use, 100% pure PE fiber super braid on the market for all inline rigging applications. And, this week you have the opportunity to grab both line and your rigging needles at an incredible price - one week only, one offer per client only, and the deal's off the table once we sell out...and we will indeed sell through the allotment for this promotion. You'll love both the line and the rigging needles which feature polished and tapered points - they're super easy to use!



130# size Needle Point


130# size point from another supplier

The image to the left shows ToroTamer's improved needle point. another firms needle point on the right. ToroTamer needles have a bit more pronounced point which makes it easier to begin insertion into hollow braid and the point is more highly polished so it slips through the line more easily.

Toro's unique design was the result of much time spent using other manufacturers products over the years. There were a few things we felt that could be improved upon in the design of these essential accessories.

One point to mention, threading needles are made to handle specific line sizes, but not all lines at a given test share the same diameter. Toro's needles accommodate a range of leader sizes, but a rated 50# needle will not accept all nominally rated 50# leaders - diameters vary. So, in the case of the 50# example, it may be necessary to use a 60# needle for sine 50# lines.

DAIWA
Tackle Storage Solutions
2019 New Product Introduction

DAIWA TACTICAL SOFT SIDED TACKLE BOX

Here's the item that really stood out to me while I was ICAST in July - Daiwa's newest soft sided tackle box Almost 20 years ago there were two tackle boxes sold by Mark Pack, the Hippo Ranger and their Ranger soft sided packs, which were everyone's favorite among saltwater anglers. These were unique and the key feature was an internal hard frame into which the Plano boxes were stored. With the hard frame the boxes weren't stacked one on top of the other, or secured with a velcro tab. Mark Pac went away as a supplier of tackle bags, primarily because the frame system went away. No firm has had anything like that since that firm's departure from the tackle bag market. 

The new Tactical Soft-Sided Tackle box is a winner! More features than any others on the market, from a major player in the tackle industry, WITH AN INTERNAL FRAME! This tackle bag has it all, literally. So, lets start at the front: you'll note there's a nice sunglass holder, and some side storage with a velcro'd flap hiding the 360 size boxes inside (and a 350, too). From the top of the bag you have a small tackle tray and even a spool holder which you can use to secure a small spool of fluorocarbon or leader for rigging on your reel conveniently. Open up the top storage and there are three wells for reel storage or other items (with velcro'd section dividers which can be rearranged for larger items).  AND, there's jig space with dividers for independently hanging some iron!

 

Lastly, note the internal frame and shelf system. This is the key feature that's been lacking on so many other bags for the past (almost) 20 years, a strong and secure frame!  This bag comes with three 360 size boxes and one smaller 350 on top (shorter box to allow for the jig storage section on the top of the bag.

ESCA

1/2 OFF

They're Back...and on special! The Original Award Winning Saltwater Powered Bio Light.
Accept no imitations, these are the real deal, no batteries needed, powered by saltwater!

ESCA
I first came across this product at ICAST several years ago. I was very much interested, but at that point there was no way for me to bring the piece into this country. They're based in Norway, and it would have been a pain in the keester to import 'em. I've been following them ever since, and fishing the sample they provided me. They also had some growing to do, earn their USA patent... We are now pleased to be able to offer this unique product to our clients. The Esca fish attractor utilizes light and electro-magnetic influences to attract gamefish. It can improve the performance of all lures, imitates natures own lure lights, and adds life to lures and bait. While the piece can be used as a lure, it truly shines best by treating it as an attractor. I wrote this back around 2007, and through 2010 we saw this product grow in popularity with USA based distribution. But, then something happened in 2011. Their USA manager disappeared, they did not come to the ICAST shows, we could not make contact, and people kept calling asking about the esca lights, if we had any...  I'll cut to the chase, we found 'em, we've got 'em, and you'd do well to grab some.*
(Please note, the image right shows the lure with hook, that's not accurate. The esca light comes with split rings front and rear, no hooks.)

There are four different styles/types of Esca attractors. The devices emit either green or blue light, and that light is either a constant fade in and out, or a blinking/strobe. They are powered by saltwater itself, and will work for up to 100 hours of fishing time - no batteries involved. The best use for the Esca device is to use them as an add-on to your existing lures. They have proven very successful for folks targeting swordfish, all types of deeper water rockfish, and most recently billfish. (They have been used in several tournaments for great effect). The Esca replicates the wavelength, intensity and frequency of light emitted by different types of fish and plankton - the manufacturer refers to this as the "pulse of life!" They also create an electromagnetic field that triggers the hunting instincts in fish. Fish will bite, and bite harder! The Esca will improve the visibility of your lures and tackle, improving your odds at getting bit.

Esca attractors weigh 7 grams. They can be used by themselves as a small jig, but they are really best used together with spinners, jigs, iron, and bait. You can rig them inside soft bodied squid skirts, inline, with deep diving lures and with trolling lures. For some rigging ideas please click this link.
