VMC Mustache Jig

If you’ve ever Wacky Rigged to catch big bass, you won’t be surprised when you ice monster panfish with VMC’s new Mustache Jigs.

Featuring a pre-rigged egg sac with two tapering appendages, a Mustache Worm looks like a tiny Wacky Worm.

“The ‘mustache’ action is created by jigging the bait slightly up and down, undulating the appendages, which brings the bait to life,” explained James Holst, host of In-Depth Outdoors TV on the Fox Sports North channel.

“The Mustache Worm has proven itself to be one of the best big-fish soft-baits I’ve ever dropped below the ice.”Mustache Jigs are purpose-built to punch through slush, drop fast and fish aggressively in a small package.

Capitalizing on the size-to-weight advantage of tungsten, the jig drops fast to keep a hot-bite on fire. Because tungsten sinks much faster than lead, even a tiny tungsten jig will get back down to biting fish much quicker than a standard lead-head jig.

The Mustache Jig’s intelligent hook design ensures lookers become biters. VMC’s exclusive Power Gap hooks feature a wider round gap than other micro-jigs of equal weight, greatly increasing hook-up percentages.

Additionally, a 90-degree hook eye ensures optimal horizontal position of the Mustache Jig, allowing ice anglers to convert more hits into solid hooksets and lose fewer fish at the hole.

VMC Mustache Jigs are available in six proven fish-catching colors.

Enhanced Ultra Glow pigments provide as long as 15 minutes of charge. The new jigs come in two sizes: 1/16th oz. (size 10 hook) and 1/32nd oz. (size 12 hook).

VMC Mustache Jigs are available at trusted fishing tackle retailers throughout the U.S. and Canada, as well as Rapala.com.

NetBait Tackle’s New Dagger Soft Plastics Deliver Better Penetration on Hooksets

The NetBait Dagger was created to provide a flipping and punching bait to the lineup.

NetBait’s Dagger design is centered around an innovative, thin flex-wing design for unique gliding action. The flex-wing is integrated with twelve forward facing angled ribs placed to improve water displacement and add subtle vibration to a natural swimming action that fish love. The flex-wing is mounted on a compact body core to easily accommodate even a 4/0 and 5/0 large Texas-rig flippin’ hook while the thin flex-wing compresses quickly to improve penetration on the hookset.

Humminbirdís exclusive MEGA 360 Imaging sonar has provided anglers with unrivaled detail in every direction around their boat. With the introduction of the new MEGA 360 Imaging Ice Adapter, Humminbird brings that exclusive technology to ice fishermen.

The MEGA 360 Imaging Ice Adapter allows anglers to utilize the MEGA 360 transducer to see a clear and sharp view under the ice, up to 125 feet around the hole. Ice anglers can eliminate the guesswork and quickly find structure and fish without drilling as many holes, track schools of fish as they move, and know which direction the fish are headed.

"Anglers have been successfully using MEGA 360 Imaging on the open water to identify structure and fish to make every minute on the water more effective," said Matt Cook, Humminbird brand manager.

The MEGA 360 Imaging Ice Adapter includes all accessories needed to convert a MEGA 360 Imaging transducer for use while ice fishing. The adapter is compatible with all MEGA 360 Imaging transducers (Universal, Ultrex, Fortrex and No Mount).
