Matt Bichanich, of Uncle Josh walks you through the new Meat product line live from the largest fishing tackle convention in the world, the ICAST Show from Las Vegas Nevada. Find out why fishing with Meat will score you even more stripers and blues.
Menhaden and Flounder Scented Sea Rinds
Uncle Josh's widely popular Sea Rinds, used up and down the striper, coast now come in menhaden (bunker) as well as flounder scents. With bunker and juvenile flounder being critical forage species for monster bass these pork rinds are sure to grab the attention of even the most finicky fish.
Big Boy Trailer
Measuring in at 10" long and 2" wide, the Big Boy Trailer is truly a monster pork rind but still maintains the favored flexibility and alluring action found in the smaller Sea Rind products. The Big Boy Trailer is a perfect match for large parachute jigs, offshore trolling lures and even outsized bucktails. As they say "match the hatch", so when big baits are present give the Big Boy Trailer a shot.
Forked Tail Sea Strip
Sometimes a minute addition of action imparted to a lure can be the difference between getting a vicious reaction strike and having the lure sail right by a fish's face. The Forked Tail Sea Strip provides a more natural baitfish type appeal to jigs and bucktails and will entice selective saltwater gamefish.
Junior Sea Strip
Tired of breaking out a razor blade or shears to trim down pork rinds and strip baits to mimic smaller baitfish and better fit lighter bucktails and jigs? Uncle Josh provides a solution to that hassle with the Junior Sea Strip. This would be a particularly excellent choice for anglers bucktailing fluke and weakfish in back bay areas on light tackle.
Tube N Worm Strip
Given the shortcomings of sandworms, the Uncle Josh Tube and Worm Strip is a slam dunk alternative. The strips are not only vastly superior in durability and availability but their unique cut adds incredible action to a tube and worm rig that live bait can't duplicate. Although these strips have a technique specific name one shouldn't be bashful about using them with bucktails and other lures alike.
Sea Eel Trailer
This long pork rind, which measures one foot by 1 inch, will swim and undulate behind your jig mimicking the natural motion of a live eel. Also, unlike soft plastic eel imitators, the Sea Eel Trailer possesses tough as nails durability so it may be used time and time again even when toothy predators, such as bluefish, get a hold of it.
Split Tail Trailer
The Split Tail Trailer can effectively imitate a larger injured bait fish, appear as the tentacles of a squid, or even be perceived as a cluster of tiny bait fish swimming tightly together. The two tails move independently of each other, so it provides jigs and bucktails with more action without the angler having to work them harder.
Stinger Hook Trailer
Wouldn't you love to stick it to those slick fish that have been nipping the end of your trailer and not going anywhere near the hook? Uncle Josh has answered such a prayer with its Stinger Hook Trailer. This trailer incorporates a 5/0 forged stainless steel hook at the end of the forked tail to nail short biters and is double-folded as an insurance policy to withstand big, hard fighting fish.
Striper Hook Strip
Uncle Josh offers a Sea Rind product to combat short biters and that is the Striper Hook Strip. Measuring 5 1/4" x 5/8" with a beefed up 5/0 forged Mustad hook that won't adversely affect the rind (i.e. resists corrosion, peeling and discoloration) the Striper Hook Strip is a proven weapon on an array of trophy gamefish.
Striper Sea Strip
Ask any surfcaster or boatman who targets striped bass with bucktails and jigs about the Striper Sea Strip pork rind and the reply will be unanimous; it's a classic. This is perhaps the most widely utilized and time honored pork rind employed on the striper coast.
Swing Hook Bucktail
The Swing Hook Bucktail incorporates a pot belly head to moderate its sink rate and is splashed with just a bit of red on the underside to mimic the appearance of bleeding gills. The swinging hook also damps the negative effects one can encounter with fixed hook jigs on soft mouthed species (weakfish) and the leveraging action of a fish's head shakes during a fight.
Striper Candy Bucktail
Ask most savvy striped bass fisherman if they could have only one lure to fish what it would be and you'll surely be told it's a bucktail. Uncle Josh's Striper Candy Bucktail is deadly effective wherever striped bass are found. Striper Candy Bucktails are hand tied in a wide range of sizes and colors and are a definite must in every angler's arsenal.
MEAT minnows are composed of soft, yet durable pork fat which imparts both lifelike action to the bait and the ability to withstand multiple fish. What sets these baits apart is that they are impregnated with actual minnow scent and can be kept on the boat or in your tackle box to be on the ready at any time. MEAT Minnow come in six fish catching colors and measure 3" x 1/2" coming in re-sealable packs of 8.
Any competent saltwater angler recognizes the importance of both sand eels and American eels as prime, fish killing baits. Our Meat Eels measure 9" long and come in a variety of colors so they can effectively imitate both American eels and jumbo sand eels. Fish them for striped bass, doormat fluke, cod or take them to the offshore grounds. No matter the application you can't go wrong with these baits.
MEAT Belly Strip
Like traditional strip baits, MEAT Belly Strips have a soft, chewy texture and produce an irresistible undulating action in the water which entice fish to strike and hold on. Best of all they come pre-cut in tapered, forked tail pieces which, unlike homemade strip baits, can be recharged with scent when they wash out simply by placing them back in their re-sealable packaging.
