PRODUCT PLUG -
Sea Ride Blue Blue -
Blue Blue fishing brand from Tokyo have designed a very unique jig that is designed for the casting and jigging game.
These jigs come pre-rigged with top quality micro flashing assists attached via a split ring to the head of the jig. Normally with most casting jigs the weight is located at the rear however with SeaRide the majority of the weight is located at the head aiding to create the erratic actions it displays. The finish is also top notch with a variety of colors to choose from.
Another brilliant feature about these lures is that they be cast out and fast retrieve back, which creates an erratic side-to-side action, which is irresistible to the apex predators. So therefore, this lure is two lures in one with the slow jigging as well as the fast burn retrieve.
Blue Blues Sea Ride are not just limited to casting but can also be used for vertical jigging with extremely effective results on species such as Skippy, Snapper, Cod, Dhu Fish, Sampson Fish, Mackerel, Tuna, Coral Trout etc, Sea Ride Blue Blues have proven very popular with offshore jig fisherman.
Sea Ride jigs are designed with the latest in slow jigging technology with its amazing slide action, these jigs glide erratically through the water column like a soft plastic. These jigs are perfect for inshore and deep sea fishing and are used best when there is little or no run. The Sea Ride have a very unique "dolphin action" like no other lure in the world. When you slightly twitch upwards and retrieve, this creates the unique "dolphin" swimming action which is irresistible to many fish.
If you are into jigging in any way, then these are a must have for your jigging wallet.
