The Live Jig Lives, Introducing the New Luna Bait Luna Jig

Date: 7/22/10
Location: Las Vegas, NV
Admission: Buyers & Press only
Manufacturer: Luna Bait
Reviewer: Team TackleTour

Introduction: Some of you may already know about the Luna Jig but we didn't until we ran into former Megabait owner at ICAST. He mentioned to us that he now has a new company called Luna Bait where and has created a new mold that is designed to improve on the original in both fit and finish.


The new Luna Jigs by Luna Bait (these are formerly known as Live Jig by Megabait)


Luna Jig: Previously the Megabait Live Jig was one of the best selling jigs on he market. The action on the drop was deadly effective for many freshwater and saltwater species. Over the years there have been copies of this lure but they all seemed to fall short in terms of either quality or effectiveness. Enter the Luna Jig.. the new jig looks near identical to the Megabait Live Jig that we reviewed - Live Jig Review. They are of the same basic shape, size, and there seem to be a wider range of patterns now available.


Nearly identical from the old lure, the new Luna Jigs now use a metal mold and have even better finishes


One difference Nick mentioned to us was the mold. Before the Live Jig used a plastic mold. Now a new metal mold is used and it provides a more consistent shape and finish. The Luna Jig is available in 15 different patterns and in sizes ranging from 1/4 to 4 1/2 ounces. The colors and sizes can be seen on ExtremeLures.com - Luna Jigs. The lures are priced between $5 to $8 each, depending on size.


Here's the color chart for the Luna Jig


Conclusion: Many anglers will be excited to see the return of this popular jig. At one point anglers rushed to buy out stores in a desperate attempt to get as many jigs as possible before they disappeared for good. As it turns out the jig is back, albeit under a different brand but with what the company describes as the same great look and feel, just with greater consistency.
