Its 4 degress out so I am just killin some time just woundering how do ya plan on fooling blue fin tuna come summer when they are not actively feeding????
Oh yeah I have something for them, actually lots of things
Our new 200g Holographic Minnow, better than Shimano @ half the price
100% over-sized through wire, USA made Holographic foil, German Glow Paint on the belly.
5 Colors to start with, these are all prototypes for testing in Costa Rica next week.
Of course I know that many Bluefin are going to fall victim to the Cape May Hammered Diamonds as well!
(These are production samples, have not been sent the Chrome plating shop, so they have a dull "lead" look).
Our guys are flying down to Costa Rica to test these new sizes next week...
We now have the following sizes:
3oz, 4.25 oz, 6 oz, 8.25 oz, 11.5 oz, and the mighty 15 oz (420 grams)
All have oversized welded #500 rings for plenty of action. This has quickly become the "go to" lure
for many of the jigging crowd. The smaller sizes will be deadly on blues and bass.
Our little 85g / 3 oz - is cherry. Can you jig it or cast it a country mile, will be very popular for the surf
Hoping for a STELLAR 2010 boys!
Not at all.Not to sound like a smarta$$ but have you ever had the oppurtunity to look at fishing lures 50-100ft below the surface while diving?at 50 ft with mostly all colors excluding red they all look black! red starts to get darker in shade around 60-65ft! Im saying this because last year while freedivng in Hawaii we experimented with flourocarbon and mono leaders and different colors ar depth and then moved onto lures and colors! Now when you hold the lures in your hand or a couple feet away you can see the colors but swim away 15-20ft and you just see the sillouette! And out there the visibility is a 100ft plus most of the time! Now when we experimented with flashers(spearfishing device used for luring fish within shooting range) we found that cd's or anything mirrored works great when there is sufficient sunlight to create a glare or shine off the holographic surface! but when it goes too deep or in less than ideal visiblity they prove to be worthless! I am not pretending to be a jig fisherman at all but from what i've learned about colors at depth i would be more concerned about the action and sillouette characters of a jig than i would be about colors!
Jay - PM me your address I'll send you a few samples of our hammered to try if you want! I hear they are getting close.Get those jigs ready boy's.....good size Bluefins are showing up off
i agree with bear based on human sight seems pointless. we all agree color does matter somehow or our tackle would all be one colorFis eyes see much differently than ours. The color rods of their eye are different.
