Suick Red Hot Thriller Jerkbaits
Got the Northerns biting!
Pulled out this lure [Walleye(31), 9"] after 5 days of fishing Dawn Lake, Ontario (Wilderness North) on a fly-in fishing trip in July '08. We were fishing a football field sized 15' weed bed in the middle of a deep bay, at about 9PM in the lingering light. Since this was the first time I had used this lure I wasn't sure the summer Northerns would react, especially since the only thing they would bite on all week was 3-6" trolled spoons. Every single cast yielded huge explosive reactions and a few nice fish. While the biggest fish brought to the boat was only 36" there was the 48"+ that sheared off my 50# Spiderwire Invisibraid, taking the lure with it... What a wonderful lure, perfectly tuned, nice tracking, huge sharp red trebles, beautiful paint - shame to lose it out there!

Its a great, classic lure. I can cast it great on my abu c4. An excellent action, and I love the way you can greatly adjust the running depth just by bending the metal tail. However, both sides of the metal tail must be equal, otherwise the lure will dive off to on side with every jerk.

The suick is a fantastic dive/rise jerkbait. It is very buoyant and creates a great nose dive action when jerked. The metal tail can be adjusted to control depth.
