Does One Plus One Equal More than Two? Meet the Lunkerhunt "Link"


Date: 7/6/16
Tackle Type: Lures
Manufacturer: Lunkerhunt
Reviewer: Zander




Introduction: Lunkerhunt has long been known for their realistic looking lures and this ICAST the company is blending that ultra-realistic design with some good old fashioned innovation. Meet the dual bodied "Link" Series which features two lures connected together to create a unique fish attracting topwater action.


Lunkerhunt's newest lure is a topwater hinged bait called the Link


The Lunkerhunt Link is designed to mimic baitfish and eel like creatures features an interesting new hinged topwater design. It employs a reinforced internal stringer for maximum durability and strength, while still providing exceptional freedom of movement.


The Link will be available in two sizes, 4.5 inches and 6.75 inches, and with two swimming actions


So just how is this new lure designed to be fished? Anglers can get creative with different cadences and retrieves as the Link can be made to skirt or walk across the water. The Link will be available in two sizes, 4.5 inches and 6.75 inches, and will come in 9 different natural forage patterns.


The baits feature the high quality detailed finishes we have come to expect from Lunkerhunt


These patterns are designed to mimic some of North America’s most popular forage and the baits' themselves will come in two retrieve styles: chasing baitfish which replicates fleeing minnows, and serpent, which mimics the slithering action of a snake or eel along the water’s surface. Lunkerhunt explained that it takes a minimal amount of effort to get the new Link lures to walk, glide, go completely erratic, or create a serpentine slinking action (depending on the lure style). 


A look at the Link Bluegill. These lures will officially debut next week at ICAST


Each bait comes armed with three premium black nickel treble hooks and will retail for $12.99 to $13.99 depending on size. They will be officially introduced at ICAST next week but the company has already revealed some footage demonstrating the swimming action of the bait on youtube. Will one plus one equal more than two? The new Link just might be one of the most intriguing new baits to debut next week at ICAST.
