COLT SNIPER JIG SYSTEM Lures
The Shimano Colt Sniper Jig System are new to the market for 2014. These versatile metal jigs mimic natural small food items such as anchovy, pilchard and whitebait which spark prey drive in larger predators that are looking for an easy meal - after all elephants eat peanuts!
The Shimano Colt Sniper Jig System come in two styles:
Colt Sniper Long - A slender profile jig that will drop faster through the water column in deeper and areas of high current. The Shimano Colt Sniper Long will reach your desired depth quickly and target the fish you have marked on your sounder.
The Colt Sniper Long is available in five proven colours (Silver/Chartreuse, Blue Pilchard, Blue, Pink, Silver, Pink/lumo and Orange/Gold) and in two weights (42g and 60g).
Colt Sniper Flatfall - The design of this unique flat sided jig creates a “flutter” action as it falls in to the strike zone mimicking a wounded prey item and suspends longer in the water column for increased visibility to predators like snapper, kahawai and john dory.
Available in five proven colours (Silver/Chartreuse, Blue Pilchard, Blue, Pink, Silver, Pink/lumo and Orange/Gold) and in four weights (21g, 28g, 35g, 42g and 55g) across the range.
The technique for both Shimano Colt Sniper Jig styles is best described is a slow and exaggerated “mechanical jig" action that most kiwi anglers would have become familiar with over the recent years.
Once you have reached your desired depth engage your reels drag and simply perform a big slow lift of the rod tip and a slowly retrieve line on to the reel as you drop the rod tip. Predators will strike in both phases of the lift/drop so be prepared for a hook up at any stage.
Shimano Colt Sniper Jigs come pre-rigged with a quality assist hook, assist cord, split and solid rings - so you can have confidence that once hooked up you stay connected.
