With speedsters like albies, bonito and Spanish mackerel now part of the inshore scene, the introduction of Fat Cow’s Epoxy Fat Minnow Jig could not have been better timed. Measuring 2-1/2 inches and available in weights of ¾ and 1 ounce, this lure should be an ideal match for the small bay anchovies, baby herring and spearing that these gamefish gorge themselves on. During field testing last fall, the jigs proved very successful on albies, and this season, anglers are reporting using the pink finished jigs for porgies and sea bass with great success.
The lure’s design allows for long casts with light tackle, an important feature when targeting albies and bonito. Fat Minnow Jigs feature a durable epoxy resin coating, and a reflective finish that is available in five realistic fish catching colors to match the prime forage of these three hardtails, as well as striped bass and bluefish.
Fat Cow’s Epoxy Fat Minnow Jigs are fitted with heavy duty split rings and each jig comes with a 4X treble hook attached and an extra inline single hook in the package for those who prefer a single hook over trebles for easy releasing.
Be sure to include these jigs in your arsenal this fall. They retail for $9.99 and are available at many tackle shops. For a dealer near you and information on Fat Cow’s full line of jig strips and scents, go to Fatcowfishing.com.
