Spoons, rattlebaits, jigs…we’ve got you covered! [drool emoji]:
1. Spoon feed ’em!
Simple but interesting design seeing as fish love them some eyeballs. Basically a bullseye for ’em to target:
Has a quick-change clevis on the rear to swap out hooks or bead colors. LOADS of action with a nasty side-to-side wobble on the drop. #Flashy
It’s no secret how well jointed baits can work during the open-water season — gives the bait an extra little wobble — this is the first I’d ever seen one designed specifically for ice. And that face-down design is for upward feedin’ fish….
> “Uniquely weighted to offer ultimate action and vibration. On the drop, the counter-weighted system gives these spoons an erratic action that triggers fish to strike.”
I’ve said before and I’ll say it again: Every walleye fisherman/woman should own a 3/8-oz PK Spoon in the “red dot glow” color. It’s that good — especially when fished aggressively:
And PK just came out with a new rattle version I’m hoping to test out this weekend.
2. Be aggressive, BE-E aggressive.
A tasty 1-5/8″ (3/16-oz) size for you ice-heads. 12 different colors, 4 of which are UV and designed specifically for ice fishing:
Can be vertical-jigged through the ice or open water, but also a casting bait with a “finesse fall and strong BB rattle.” In typical Phantom Lures fashion they nailed the colors:
Sorta like a hard-bodied jigging bait + a rippin’-style bait combined. Pop a glow stick inside the bait and the entire thing glows — not just the glow stick — since light radiates in the color of the lure:
A new ‘vertizontal’ bait design that’s coming out SOON:
> “…features and industry first sliding head rail…allows the bait to sink vertically at incredible speeds, and with one twitch of the rod, the lure transitions to a horizontal presentation. The unbreakable polycarbonate lip gives the lure an erratic darting action and the feathered tail draws fish in.”
Designed to “mimic baitfish better than any other vertical jig.” Great on pressured fish and big smart ones! The realistic patterns allow you to slow the bait way down when there’s a fish staring at it, without scaring ’em off:
3. Tungsten panfish treats.
A must-have bait for fussy panfish. Has a compact profile that weighs the same as lead jigs twice its size. What else makes ’em different:
> …has a longer and bulkier body with goose-feather tail and wings. …VMC Power Gap hook offers a 5% wider gap than traditional jig hooks for a higher-efficiency hooking rate. Additionally, a 90-deg hook eye ensures the optimal horizontal position and maintains the perfect strike angle.
> The shape of these jigs is similar to that of a disco ball, allowing light to be reflected in all directions for greater notice-ability. …unique wide-gap design perfect for double-up baiting techniques.
New tungsten jig that’s molded after the Custom Jig & Spins Ratfinkee. Designed to fish deeper, get down quicker and keep your line tighter. #PanfishCandies
Its “eyes” have a built-in glass rattle that reflects light, adds sound and movement to seal the deal when it’s getting the once-over from a big pannie:
Really diggin’ the colors, too:
