When it comes to fishing in saltwater there are a few names that come to mind when you think of trophies; tunas, marlin, sailfish, and tarpon. They get all the hype and are so sought after, but there’s a simple pleasure in going after something less flashy. Nothing wrong with going out for some bottom fish like flukes, snappers, seabass, and porgies. Just as great of a day can be had by just filling up a cooler with some meat fishing. That’s where Spro comes in to meet your bottom fishing needs. They are introducing their NEW Cannon Ball saltwater jigs, featuring unique Tai rubber skirts rigged with two Gamakatsu 1/0 assist hooks. These new jigs are offered in six sizes, each in five different colors.
“Our lure design team focused on a ‘utilitarian’ approach to developing the Cannon Ball jigs,” said SPRO’s Syd Rives. “The objective we meet is a lure designed to be useful and practical to attract and target these species, not at all to attract anglers. Most may hesitate at first to try one, let alone pull one off a tackle shop peg, but our field-testing throughout northeast Atlantic waters, and up-and-down the Atlantic and Gulf coast show these jigs attract fish.”
The Cannon Ball jig is best worked close to the bottom slowly. This allows it to swim and drift giving the jig the most action possible. It is ideal when fishing over bottom species structure and can be equally effective over shallower-water reefs.
The Cannon Ball jigs are available in five lure weights starting at 85 grams all the way to 340 grams (3- to 12-oz.). Each size also comes in a variety of colors, including Mirror Blue, Tequila Sunrise, Key Lime Pie, Bloody Mary, and Peach Glow.
