uhh, they seem to resemble an octopus pretty wellfearnofish said:i was in the tackle shop sunday checking the new stuff out when i came across the shimano lucanus. these things are wild looking. most jiggs usually resemble something else but these don't.
Hopefully a few other companies make them to wouldn't be suprised if williamson lures jumps on it toTunaman40 said:That's what I scream'n about . I understand Dennis Braid will be producing a jig similar to the Lucanus but for half the cost.
the guys in Louisiana have been using them for tuna for awhile now. They exchange the hooks on the ring with a single, larger hook like the owner assist hook. Obviously one large enough to handle tuna and other big gamefish down there. They are dropping it and speed reeling or burning it back to the boat. Tuna pictures were lying around the shimano booth at the suffern and the somerset show if any of you saw them.fightingcouch said:They look awesome.
I will bouncing them out in the canyons this season. We will be testing them and putting them to the max and see if the tuna respond to them.
