Some years ago, back in about 2004 Tady’s #15 and 77 were their largest jigs (and 20 years before that they had one even larger the BCL). The heavy 15 in blue chrome was a favorite among long range anglers targeting big yellowfin tuna. One of our clients landed a fish over 270 lbs on one of those jigs.  The 77’s were a surface lure, and a good one.  Both of those jigs went away over 10 years ago, and now they are essentially back with the introduction of Tady’s 14A. These are 7 inch long lures, available in two weights, the light iron is 3.75 ounces, the heavies are 8.5 oz.  We will stock two of their heavy tuna jigs, a lumo/glow and a blue/chrome with glow back.  Back 10 years, it was the big Tady and the Salas PL68 that got the attention of the long range tuna guys (and fish), but for the past decade Salas’ PL68’s really had no competition among those fishing cows on iron.  Now there’s an option, and a good one at that. And, going a step further, with the larger heavy and light versions (w/treble hooks) we’ve got another great lure to toss at yellowtail (and of course other fish).

The image right shows a Salas PL68 (white glow) on the left next to the Tady 14A (lumo/glow). The Salas is about 1/2 inch longer and weighs 11.25 oz verses 9.1 oz (weighed with hook – both with an excellent LARGE single hook – Salas is stainless steel Tady a 7691DT Mustad). Tady jigs are produced overseas, and that allows them a few different “holographic” type finishes which we’ve seen on some of their other irons. Matt Salas makes his jigs here in SoCal, is his own foundry, so he pours the jigs himself.  There’s a bit of a difference in the shape of the jigs, and that’s reason enough to own both, edges are cut a bit sharper on the Tady’s.  We are focusing our attention on the color patterns experienced anglers use most, omitting some of the patterns which are perhaps more targeted towards fishermen than fish. That’s subjective on my part, but our long range clients are quite selective and their experience does point to several effective patterns which we’d describe as bread and butter – and the ones most worth owning. We can certainly stock all colors offered by Tady, and we’ll gladly get ’em for you should that be your inclination, but we’ll focus our inventory and recommendations based upon what we know works with experience to back up the suggested patterns.
