This is one of the new products I’m most excited about, we’ve carried a wide variety of smaller stickbaits and a small selection of larger floating stickbaits for the guys into the topwater fishing. It has worked out well for most species we have here in California, but there was always one species that was more elusive. Our bluefin in the US waters and yellowfin down south are moving around the water column very often so while some time you may be able to get a surface bite on lures and flying fish other times they might be 100 feet out of reach. Sinking stickbaits are a good answer to this dilemma, they’ve been used to catch bluefin around the world for a long time now but have been hard to get and use. While the $200 Japanese handmade lures are great, it is hard to invest that much which is why these lures are so exciting to me.
The Keeling stickbaits look and swim great, they sink at a moderate to fast rate, flashing on the way down even including glow on some of the patterns. The sizes are perfect for casting and for getting a bite from the bigger fish. All of the lures are through-wired so you won’t have to worry, and not only that the bodies are reinforced so you won’t have to worry about a one and done. They come rigged with large stainless inline hooks, and the 200mm size will be great for targeting our bluefin and bigger yellowfin at Guadalupe. The patterns are very bright and reflective which makes them more appealing, but they also match some of the best bait and colors we could use down here. The smaller sizes will be great for schoolie tuna, yellowtail, bonito and more.
