Jackall of All Trades - New Gantia Swimbaits and
Gavacho Popper Frogs
||Buyers & Press Only
Introduction: Is there any lure category that Jackall can't address? It
sure doesn't seem like it as the brand continues to expand their already very
robust offering year after year. Fresh off their successful Ganteral Jr. and
Rhythm Wave soft swimbait spring launches the team at Jackall surprised us at
ICAST with more offers designed to target big and aggressive fish.
The Gantia is a new 7 inch four
Swim on: Swimbaits and Big Baits continue
to be a popular tool among trophy hunters and Jackall's newest offering, the
Gantia, is a triple-jointed, four-segment hard swimbait with a semi-hard tail.
The 7-inch Gantia lures are designed to draw fish in with a mesmerizing side to
side swimming action.
The Gantia features some very high
quality realistic finishes and like the Ganteral has a second line tie to add
The Gantia is designed to be equally effective
fished at high speed or slow speed retrieves, and when twitched causes it to
turn like a frightened bait fish. It can be fished suspended by adding weight to
an extra eyelet. Color finishes offered in the new Gantia swimbaits include RT
Ghost Scale Wakasagi, RT Largemouth Bass, RT Sexy Pearl Ayu, Drizzle Blue
Natural, Trout, Scale Gill, Gizzard Shad and Hitch. The big baits have very high
quality finishes and yet are quite reasonably priced at $37.99 each.
Jackall's new popping frog, the
Pop On: If plugging away fishing topwater
is more your thing then Jackall's new Gavacho popping frog might just be your
new favorite bait. When retrieved, the Gavacho popper frog induces bass to
strike by producing a fine water spray thanks to the cupped mouth.
Three legs? or just a wider
The 2.7-inch, 5/8-ounce baits have trio silicon
skirt offering plenty of appeal and movement, and the dual hooks are housed in a
three-dimensional body providing the right balance design to resist snags and
produce solid hooksets. The Gavacho frogs are available in six colors – Black
Gill, Chartreuse Strike Gill, Gold Gill, Lime Frog, Red Frog and White. The new
Gavacho Popping Frog retails for $9.99 each.
Jackall's new creature bait
resembles a crawfish
Creature with a twist: Jackall makes some
very popular plastics and is now introducing what they hope will be a go-to
creature bait for bass anglers. The new Archelon is a crawdad creature bait that
features a slim profile yet is designed to be durable with a firm plastic yet
soft enough that when fish strike the hook is quick to penetrate.
Anglers can insert a rattle into
the head of the Archelon
Along with the big flap tails to stir up water, a
rattle can even be inserted into the body from the tentacle side to create even
more noise. The Archelon baits can be rigged Carolina, Texas, or even used for
punching techniques when paired with a heavyweight sinker.
