Patience can be a Virtue, but Beware Jackall's Poison
and new lures
Jackall brings us another new technique and bait that's already being used in
Japan. The Cover Craw, this is a soft creature-like plastic that is designed
with a gliding action. You can cast or pitch the lure next to cover or pier,
without having to skip under them, then let the lure glide smoothly down under
at an angle, reaching places you wouldn't normally be able to. Most hits come on
the descent so be prepared to set the hook when the fish grabs the Cover Craw.
Here's a new
creature bait that will glide down at an angle, introducing the Cover Craw
The best way to rig the Cover
Craw is weightless with either Jackall's own Cover Craw Screw Hooks or ones that
are already in your tackle box. The Cover Craws are available in 3 inch or 4
inch sizes and 8 popular colors to choose from. Each package will contain 6
Cover Craws and will have a MSRP of $5.99 for either size. The Cover Craw Screw
hooks will retail for $4.99 for a pack of six.

Bowstick: The new
Bowstick 130 is a topwater walk-the-dog stick bait that's similar to the Zara
spook but has additional features to set it apart. Jackall has incorporated a
special designed gill tunnel that allows water to flow through as the head dunks
into the water. What this creates are bubbles and additional splashing, and with
the audible loud rattle will call fish up to strike aggressively.

Fortunately, those who have been waiting for Jackall to bring over their Poison sticks will soon be abundantly rewarded and we cannot wait for our opportunity to sample some of these rods in the years to come.
Not only did they display some amazing new rods but some new lures as well. This
is definitely an exciting year for Jackall.
