The Slash - Cast and Rip Bait

BACK IN STOCK

Slash jigs can be fished a couple ways, for great effect. For our long range fishermen, it's a GREAT wahoo lure in the two smaller sizes of 100 and 150 gm. For deepwater enthusiasts it's a deep water tuna jig with excellent action on the drop and wind, with the 300 and 400 sizes being the lure of choice for the larger grade bluefin and yellowfin tuna which tend to hold deeper than the schoolie fish. The lure's casts great and they are rigged properly with a higher quality single hook and a ball bearing swivel (ours even points the right way...) attached with welded rings. Colors and finish are top quality. While it will bring in wahoo when they are around, don't be afraid to jig it for tuna and yellowtail. If your fishing trip heads to Alijos you've got a great wahoo lure, but if it shifts gears and moves to Cedros fine, you've got the right lure for yellowtail. If instead you hit the banks for rockfish, you've still got an effective lure on your hands. The two smaller sized lures work great on the "slide" as an enticement to other school fish following a troll strike. One lure, fits a few applications, and a few different styles of fishing. 

This versatile lure can be fished several ways, cast and retrieve, vertical yo-yo style jigging, and speed jigging. There is a very slight curve to the lure, allowing a bit more action on the drop and as the lure is bounced up. This can be accentuated by the angler easily, and it's not a bad call on the two smaller sizes, though not something I recommend on the two largest sized slash lures. It's important to keep a good contact on the lure if you're fishing yo-yo style for a couple reasons. First, you won't know you've been bitten unless you've got contact with the lure, secondly the lure can foul itself on the two larger sized Slash lures - those with the receiver for use with small lightsticks. if you don't offer some control of its accent or descent when not using a light stick the lure's hook can enter the cavity. It's not common, but it can be done if you do not have some control of the lure's very fast decent to depth.

Based upon client feedback, we've expanded this series of lures back in 2012. We have two new LARGE size jigs to add to the assortment. The new 300 and 400 gram sizes are perfect for dealing with better grade tuna when they're holding deep. Of course they'll also do a number on yellowtail and wahoo if you need to go down to get 'em. Given the deeper water application, we've added our Illuminata feature, the new LARGE size jigs have a recess for use of a 4.5mm light stick. Go deep, get noticed and get bit!

The 300 and 400 gm size Slash lures turned out to be THE best lure for larger grade bluefin in 2014. There was no better lure, and as the guys on the Red Rooster III told folks heading out last summer, "Don't get on the boat without some." They proved their worth as the images below testify. The two smaller weight versions of the jig also performed very well as a cast and retrieve lure, or fished on the slide for schoolie tuna. It's been more often fished as a casting lure for wahoo, but the tuna take 'em too.

 

Our slash bait is available in three sizes this season:
150 gm, 5.29 oz, 6 1/2"
300 gm, 10.6 oz /180mm, 7"
400 gm, 14.11 oz /200mm, 8"

 


 

The Slash became the top producing lure for big bluefin during the 2014 bite, with the 300 and 400 gm sizes being preferred given their fast drop, shape and action.

Toro Tamer ® Wounded Swimmer
Lures 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.

 The Illuminata
Deep Water Lures from ToroTamer!

Check our Clearance Page...

The Illuminata has been one of our best selling and best producing lures since it's introduction in late 2010. We've made some improvements and added some new flavors for our most recent production.  Our Illuminata takes the knife jig to a different plane by adding even more fish attraction to the mix. This lure offers a great shape for vertical jigging, offers a wonderful flutter, and with the light stick option you get noticed at depths other lures simply won't. Further for the guys hitting the jigs at night, these have the ability of turning on a bite like no other lure. These new and well proven lures have a space in the body where you can add a small light stick to further attract a bite. For deep water fishing, this additional attraction will ensure that your jig gets noticed, it will make a difference in your catch rate. The lures have luminescent bellies, but there's nothing like the green glow of an internal light stick to really turn on an otherwise lethargic predator. Each lure comes with three long lived light sticks, and we have additional light sticks available at a very attractive price. One thing you'll appreciate, these top quality light sticks will glow for up to 12 hours time! (And in all honesty, we've had some glow for two days!) Our Illuminata lures are available in two sizes, 100 and 200 grams (3.5 & 7 ounces).

Of course the lures are thru-wired for strength and security. They also have a welded ring attached to a split ring at the nose for easy rigging. Each lure comes with THREE lightsticks.

Regardless of the species you're after, vertical jigging has it's merits. I've been making up my own assist hooks for some time, thought others might want to give it a try as well. Darn easy to do, and you can rig 'em up in 5 minutes time, with only a needle, the right line and of course a hook. You can dress the rigs up using PLine's Small Hoochies or WPT's skirting material quite nicely, too. Below are a few of the necessities needed:

RL0420 Medium Reverse Latch Needle  .042"/1.06mm  80# to 200# $20
