The Live Jig Lives, Introducing the New Luna Bait Luna Jig
Introduction: Some of you may already know about the Luna Jig but we

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

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.

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.
