||Buyers & Press Only
Introduction: We are always eager to check out what Jackall has to offer
and this year the company is focused on expanding their hardbait lineup, and
especially those that are designed to target fish on the surface.
Jackall introduced a new topwater propbait called
Chop it Up:
The biggest launch for Jackall this ICAST is a new prop bait called the Chopcut.
We had an opportunity to fish this bait last week and can attest to just how
much water the bait is able to move with the lure's unique propeller design.
The Chopcut features an asymmetrical prop design
to ensure proper rotation and can create different sounds depending on retrieve
Chopcut literally chops through the water like a plane in the air but does so
with an asymmetrical prop design that allows for different noises depending on
the retrieve speed of the bait. It is also designed so that no matter what speed
you retrieve the bait that it will always exhibit the proper rotation.
The bait will be available in six colors
including the Bone, HL Bluegill, and Green Frog seen here
wire and a swiveling line tie prevent the line from tangling with the prop and
the Chopcut is designed to run on the side imitating an injured or fleeing
baitfish while a swiveling front hook mounted on the underside helps prevent
bass from spitting the lure. The Chopcut measures 3.25" in length and weighs in
at .8oz., and will retail for $22.99.
Another new surface bait is the Riserbait 009PS
Up: The second bait that Jackall is introducing this ICAST is the slick
looking Riser 009PS which has the same unique upward angled lip as the Riser 007
but now features a cupped lip and larger body.
The Riserbait features a slender profile and
The Riser 009PS's larger
design enables it to create bigger disturbances on the surface, drawing fish in
from a distance. An open mouth design and gill slits create a bubble trail in
the wake of the bait as it is retrieved.
There will be size different colors available

makes use of various materials in the bait's construction including a metal bill
design and prop design to create more flash as well as remaining very consistent
as it is fished. The new Riser Bait will be available in six colors including
Bluegill, Bone White, Chartreuse Back Pearl, Mirror Wakasagi, RT Hold Minnow,
