Event Article: 2006 ICAST Lure Coverage

ICAST Coverage Day 3 (Lures) - Who's the Mac Daddy of fishing lures? (continued)

Fish Arrow: One of the booths that immediately caught our attention was the well known Japanese lure manufacturer Fish Arrow. This is the company that builds the Ito tuned IT Jack for Megabass, a bait that is a variation of their own Monster Jack. Lobina Lures owns the United States distribution rights to Fish Arrow lures and plans to bring the entirety of this company’s offering to the US Market. The two baits they were most anxious to show us were the Slide Jack and their new for 2007 Cover Jack.


The Slide Jack is an unusual parallel to shore swimming lure

Slide Jack: The Slide Jack is technically, not a new bait, but it is certainly rather unique. This six and a half inch, one ounce bait is described as the first wacky rigged swimbait and is designed to perpendicular to your cast so that you can literally swim it under docks, overhangs, or just swim it parallel to shore.

Tie your line to the center of the bait in these eyelets

There are eyelets on either side of the bait so you can adjust the baits swimming direction based on the cover you are fishing. This is a bait certain to cause quite a stir in the industry. Retail price is $55 per lure.

The Cover Jack is a neatly finished frog

Cover Jack: The Cover Jack is set to debut in April of 2007 and is Fish Arrow’s take on the floating frog. The bait comes armed with a dual hook, and is weedless like most frog baits.

There are a army of colors available, all of which come with a skirt like single tail

Featuring crankbait like colors, and spinnerbait like trailers, these baits are truly stunning yet are as soft and pliable as any frog bait you might come across. Projected at a retail price of $15 per lure, it will be interesting to see just how well these high end frogs perform.
