Spaz the Mouse - Fishing Tips

 


Fishing Tips: There are many productive ways to fish Spaz the Mouse. Cast it near weed beds or lily pads and retrieve with rhythmic slack-line twitches to produce a side-to-side action. Varying the strength of the line twitch will change the action of Spaz from a slight wiggle to a violent side-to-side splash. Try alternating a few twitches with a few reels. Pausing the retrieve will entice timid fish. The soft marabou tail will continue to move even after the lure is stopped. A slow steady retrieve will create a small natural wake and slight rear wiggle. For best results, coat the tail and whiskers with your favorite fish attractant, and tie it directly to your line with a loop knot or Rapala Knot

 

 

 

 

Lunker Lizard - Fishing Tips

 


Fishing Tips: The Lunker Lizard can be fished weightless Texas rigged on a 4/0 or 5/0 EWG hook. They fall perfectly level and their legs and tail naturally wiggle on the drop. They can also be fished on the top using this same rig. Many people have reported success on a Carolina Rig or Drop Shot Rig.

 

I normally fish the lizards weightless with 3 different killer presentations: 

1) Drag them across the surface (make sure the hook tip is buried in the spine of the lizard if there are weeds) It will run upside down on top, hook down, and roll upright when you stop reeling. 

2) Flip them near structure and let them fall with a slack line (watch the line)

3) Crawl them along the bottom (extremely SLOW, there is no such thing as too slow)

 

 

 

 

 

Striper Squirrel - Fishing Tips

 


Fishing Tips: The Striper Squirrel walks easily compared to other big walking baits. You can control the width of the walk by changing the frequency of your line twitches. I often walk it three or four times and pause the bait for a few seconds. Reluctant fish will often move in for a closer look and pounce while the bait is at rest. Quicker twitches will cause the bait to spit, roll and dive like a popper. Adjust the amount of commotion depending on the aggressiveness of the fish.

 

 

 

UV Reflective Subcoat?

 

All of our hardbaits have a UV Subcoat.

 

"Fish appear to have quite well developed visual systems, comparable in some species to those of birds. Some have photoreceptors with peak sensitivities in the ultraviolet range. This may be because, like birds, they move about in a blue environment and need to contrast food sources or predators against a blue background." -Institute for Dynamic Educational Advancement

 

"UV light is short wavelength, high frequency energy from sun and stars, invisible to us, but visible to a variety of the fish species scientists have tested so far. About 60% of sunlight that cuts through the water’s surface is UV light. UV light penetrates clear water far deeper than human-visible light. Oceanographers have found UV light 700’ deep. The scales of many prey fish reflect UV light. Bluegills are an example. Zooplankton, shrimp, squid, and many aquatic insects also reflect UV light. This silhouettes them against their blue-green background, making these creatures more visible to their predators. UV light also polarizes, especially early and late in the day. Diverse gamefish detect polarized light. UV light makes up nearly all the light in deep, clear water. Mud, algal blooms, and glacial till absorb and scatter UV light decreasing the depth which it penetrates. Long wavelength, low frequency, non-UV light – red and infrared – will cut through murkier water better." - CSI Paints
