Crashing Thunder

We’ve Added Flash & Noise to help produce more Lunkers!

The “ Crashing Thunder ” is the first of its kind combining a swimbait’s kicking tail action and the pulsating vibration from a spinnerbaits blade. It was designed so it can be fished from bottom to top, fast to slow, in tight cover and in open water. It’s perfect for slow rolling off the shore and back out to deeper water or yo-yoing it up and down for suspended bass. We have found that for best results, you should always vary the retrieve speeds until you find one that best suits the mood of the fish for the current conditions.

Now the Crashing Thunder is available in both a tandem willow and double willow in both gold and silver plated blade combinations. The wire is now also designed so the baits are interchangeable to match the conditions. The product line up now includes the AA`s curly tail grubs and Tails of Optimum as trailer options.

Top water excitement from a fish exploding on a buzzbait and the trademarked knobbed Optimum swimbait tail are captured in this new style lure. Twin blades rotate in opposite directions enabling it to get on plane quicker, true tracking, and deep sound penetration drawing fish from near and far. To bring back the fun to your outdoor adventure we proudly offer the Ambitious Buzz in several length wires and swimbait combinations.

Tails of Optimum

The Tails of Optimum are used with external jigheads and are very effective when you need a lure that covers an extremely broad speed range. The key is to find what mood the fish are in and experiment with different weighted heads. These swimbaits have thinner bodies which, when rigged correctly, are speed- burners that can produce a super-fast cadence yet still retain the capability for a very slow presentation. These tails feature high detail and are fully decked out with gills and dorsal fins.

The Tails of Optimum are perfect for both freshwater and saltwater species.
