Known for their extraordinary bass-catching abilities, there’s just something special about rubber-skirted jigs. Pitched, flipped, dragged, or hopped, they simply catch fish.
Enter the Ever Green IR Finesse Jig, a rubber-skirted jig.
It has a radical new take in rubber-skirted finesse bass jig design. The lure is a cross between a football-head, round head, grass jig, and sim jig to ply bluegill and crawfish inhabited waters.
The head is perfectly rounded to drop straight, deflect of structure, and crawl linearly on bare bottoms like gravel and sand. The head’s line-tie is at a 45-degree angle, which accommodates direct line to your rod tip for better feels and control. The intended line-tie angle also assists successful hooksets. Its custom long-shank hook is sharp and unbending. The IR Finesse Jig also features a significant wire bait-keeper to fortify plastic trailers, while a single and double rattle holder on the base of the head allows for an audible addendum for mimicking crawdad “clicks”.
Freedom Tackle Report
If you like to fish your spinnerbaits fast, the new Freedom Tackle Speed Freak is the answer.
Run it as fast as you want with this keel head spinnerbait designed to keep its head down and stay down on those super-speed retrieves. The new Speed Freak Spinnerbait can achieve high-speed retrieves because of its unique down-winged head design that slices through the water while also creating downforce with the bait.
The head design is finished with a two-barb super sticky bait keeper that is fully integrated with our premium black nickel hook – sized matched for the spinnerbait weight which, is size-stamped directly on the head. The head design also relies on a proprietary collar to increase skirt flair.
The other key to the Speed Freak’s performance is the patent-pending Kilter blade which allows for an erratic action from the bait and the skirt that guaranteed fish haven’t felt before with an absolutely unique vibration & flash!
Compact and Full Frame versions are available in multiple sizes and colors.

Picasso Lures Report
Picasso Lures announces the release of the new Shakey Vibe inspired by Lake Guntersville, Ala. Guide Lonnie Cochran. The Shakey Vibe would best be described as a combination of a shaking jighead and bladed jig, though it is at its core a finesse option for anglers.
Cochran said that the idea came to him as he was reading an issue of Bassmaster Magazine. “I was looking at one of their illustrations and saw a worm standing straight up off the bottom with what I thought was a blade on the nose,” he said. “After I put my reading glasses on, I realized it was a bullet weight lying on its side, but the idea stuck with me.”
Cochran said he picked up the phone and called Terry Monteleone, co-owner of Picasso Lures and told him what he was looking for, he was met with silence. “I thought that the idea must not be any good, because the only word I got was ‘okay’,” said Cochran. “But he called me a couple of days later telling me he had something for me to try, and we were on the way.”
