Toro Tamer Wahoo Ripper
- Cast and Rip Bait For Wahoo and more...
Check our Clearance Page...

Toro Tamer's Wahoo Ripper is a proven product, based in large part on Perry See Hoe's  original designs. Perry, who started Raider Lures in Australia met with some unfortunate, unethical treatment here - could not sell his jigs under his own tradename. He has since retired and moved on, and what's been sold in this country as Raider Jigs has not been the original product for many, many years, long story behind that episode of bad business behavior. The current "Raider" jigs are made from steel rather than the more expensive brass - ours maintain the original material.  Lure weight with Toro Tamer's production is still 125 and 200 grams, in both chrome and gold finish. They are still made from solid BRASS so they drop fast and are super strong. Here's the downside, the cost of brass is what put the larger 5 and 7 ounce Krocodile spoons out of production - those lures would have ended up costing $30 or more...at dealer cost, given the price of the brass. And, that high cost is why the American "raider" jigs are now made from steel - a much cheaper alternative production material. Toro Tamer's new production carried a higher cost too based upon raw materials, but we're willing to work far thinner in terms of our own margins as is Toro Tamer in order to bring the real deal back to USA fishermen instead of a cheaper knockoff which only shares the same name as the more productive original.

There's a reason we don't go to steel for the product, it's not as good. The lures need to be produced from brass - just like the original Krocs. But, brass is expensive. This is probably the same reasoning effecting the steel production of USA "Raider" Jigs. They've not produced in brass for over 2 years time. Since we are factory direct we can hold prices down better, but in the case of the increase in raw material charges even with our efficiencies and direct marketing these are not inexpensive jigs. If they weren't such a basic staple on the long range scene we might have given up too. But, the fact is, these are a go-to bait for wahoo, arguably the some of the best jigs ever made for the 'hoo. We're working very thin on these lures, trying to keep the price down and the quality up - and maintaining the benefits of brass in this classic lure design which was strongly influenced by the originator, Perry See Hoe.

Toro Tamer ® Wounded Swimmer
Exceptional Lure for Wahoo & Tuna!

The new version of our popular Wounded Swimmer is into it's second generation. This lure was based upon an old SPRO design which was discontinued a few years back. Then, it was a general purpose lure, mostly popular in the smaller sizes. But, upon it being discontinued we made a large purchase and one of our clients discovered it's strength as a wahoo lure. Based upon his experience (goes by the nickname Planet, a PhD-type teaching and researching at a CA university between fishing trips), we brought the piece back as a CharkBait lure a couple years ago in two large sizes and it did very, very well for wahoo, yellowfin tuna and yellowtail (among other species). It did extraordinarily well for the "skins." (note the image right, a nice wahoo from our 2014 RRIII charter - lure still in the 'skins mouth)

In this update we've continued with the improvements made before, and added something for the guys targeting larger, harder pulling fish like tuna and wahoo. Now the lures have a ball bearing swivel as the attachment point for the hook, and we've added an oversized welded ring at the nose instead of the split ring for even better action from the lure. Both improvements will provide anglers with a better performance, and our thru wire construction and less brittle body (than the old SPRO) means the lure can survive longer in the real world encounters with a hard gelcoat on a boat without catastrophic cracking. It can happen, but it takes far more punishment than the old SPRO did, and we've made it a better lure for catching wahoo and tuna.

Yep, we made a better mousetrap - make that fish trap.  We have made the lures five productive colors, two sizes, 150 and 100 gram weights, 6 1/4 & 5 1/2 inches respectively. They have a very nice curve which provides some added action on the retrieve, and upon the drop mimics a stunned bait as it drops in a flutter. The lures are exceptional, and all the colors are excellent in attracting attention from the targeted species. The big eyes also add to their realistic appearance and attention getting, fish attracting performance. These are some of the best wahoo and tuna lures you'll find. They can be fished on the slide as well as cast and retrieve mode. The price went up a tad from the earlier production, but the value is in the upgrade lures without a doubt. Both the new hook, welded ring and swivel will make these lures even better than their predecessor, and those were darn good lures with lots of fish to their credit.

Toro Tamer Metal Swimmers
Check our Clearance Page...

Toro Tamer's Metal Swimmers are an update of an old lure which we loved, but unfortunately went away. It's based on a old Dymara jig from about 15 years back. The old lure was produced in Poland, came to America by way of Canada. The manufacturer went out of business, could not offer the lures here at a reasonable price. They were a big producer for me personally and that was motivation to create molds for this production. The lure was great for yellowtail, with bass and tuna being among the catches that the lures produced. The largest size also did quite well on wahoo. Here's what makes the lures so darn effective, it's their shape. There are many similar lures on the market, but with closer inspection you can easily see why this design is more productive. They produce more action on the drop. They can be fished on the slide like a standard megabait type jig, but in the cast-and-retrieve mode they are far more effective. They produce an enticing flutter on the drop. The body is thinner, with luminescent belly, and there's a slight curve to the lure. This can be easily increased or decreased by the angler to customize the lures "fall." We've also enhanced the rigging of these wonderful lures. The ToroTamer Metal Swimmer comes with a welded ring on the nose rather than a split ring, and the hooks are upgraded in both quality and size given the target species can be quite a bit bigger than your basic bass or rockfish (which these lures also handle quite nicely).

 

Toro Tamer Bucktail Jigs

Bucktail jigs are workhorses, productive for a wide variety of fish, and successfully fished in a few different styles. They can be used cast and retrieve and vertically. They can be dragged along the bottom, they can be used with a slab from fresh cut bait, with a curly tail grub, bottom line they are flexible producers of gamefish. Over the past 15 years we've stocked some wonderful bucktails from several manufacturers, SPRO, P-Line and ProFishCO. Every one of them had some characteristics we liked, and some features we desired to see...but didn't. Sadly, two of those suppliers stopped production of their lures. So, ToroTamer came along and made their own, based on what we wanted to see.

At our shop in Huntington Beach we are fortunate to have a very talented private boater, Beta, who is one of the best white seabass fishermen I know. Several years ago he began using a jig (that I'll claim credit to introducing him to) a simple bucktail jig. Beta fished 'em with a fresh dead squid and found it was perfection, almost a do-nothing bait that was his most productive secrete weapon for WSB. There were two problems, the hook could be improved, and even more of a problem, the supplier for the jig went out of business. ToroTamer's design is not unique, far from it, it's simply a refinement of an already very good lure - and it's made with the right kind of skirting and right kind of hook. There are four color patterns available for the jigs, white, glow, red and white and blue and white. The lures all feature a fishskin with unique UV properties and glow. All lures are hand tied, and then reinforced so that they'll hold up well. For those of you who know the productivity of bucktail jigs and are familiar with their use, you'll find plenty of things to appreciate with these designs. To those new to fishing a bucktail, put some time in fishing them and you will discover a new go-to lure for sure.
