Fishing has no boundary; no limits. There is only one language and every angler understands it. It brings a smile to their face as they hold the fish. Talon Custom Lures brings a new series of lures with a Japanese flare and anglers are learning a new language when it comes to lures. Talon Shibui Yuugyo Swim Jigs and Shibui Yana Swim Jigs translates into two new innovative lures sure to bring smiles to anglers everywhere.
Yuugyo translates into English meaning fish swimming through the water.
Talon Shibui Yuugyo Swim Jigs (www.Talonlures.com) are a high technologically advanced swim jigs with an inherent natural swimming action giving it a lifelike action. “The Talon Shibui Yuugyo Swim Jigs are perfectly balanced and have a lifelike action with a swimbait trailer added to them. I like to fish them around shallow wood and grass especially where the pepper grass meets hydrilla. Also these jigs catch bass around lily pads early in the year before summertime when they get to thick to fish,” said Talon Pro Staffer Phil Hennigan. Hennigan uses a quick steady reeling when bringing the Yuugyo Swim Jig in. “Most strikes are a solid thump or your line just gets mushy,” explained Hennigan. Hennigan likes to start off fishing a 3/8-ounce Talon Shibui Yuugyo Swim Jig, but will change to a 1/2-onuce if he is not getting any strikes with the lighter jig. The Talon Shibui Swim Jig features a lifelike head, superior paint patterns, exclusive Talon V-Claw™ wire trailer keeper and a 5/0 Mustad Ultra black nickel hook.
Yana translates into English meaning fish trap.
Talon Shibui Yana is not your typical swim jig. It has a Shibui Yana Head that is shaped and balanced that creates an exaggerated shimmying action without rolling or tipping when retrieved quickly. The shimmying action of the Shibui Yana Head causes the trailer to have a swimming motion; however it’s the single blade located before the jig head that creates a unique sound and vibration when retrieved that really sets it apart from other swim jigs. “The Talon Shibui Yana Head can be fished in all of the same areas as a Shibui Yuugyo Swim Jig, but it can also be burned back across the surface similar to a buzzbait creating a gurgling sound that drives bass crazy,” said Hennigan. The Talon Shibui is built with a super strong 6/0 Mustad Ultrapoint black nickel hook so large swimbaits can be used as a trailer; in addition to allowing anglers to use heavy line without worrying about the hook bending out and losing big bass.
Hennigan tackle for fishing a Talon Shibui Swim Jig consist of 50-pound braid, heavy action rod and a 6:2.1 baitcasting reel. “I like to fish them with Reaction Innovations Little Dipper and Skinny Dipper or a Zoom Swimming Super Fluke. The Shibui Swim Jig head gives this soft plastic trailer a side to side wobble that bass find irresistible,” said Hennigan. One other thing that Hennigan always does is match the color of the trailer to the color of the jig. He believes that it gets more bites than if he has contrasting colors.
Both the Talon Shibui Yuugyo Swim Jig and the Talon Shibui Yana Swim Jig feature the Talon V-Claw wire trailer keeper that hold soft plastic trailers in place. All the skirts on are hand tied with wire to keep them from falling apart.
No limits; no boundaries. Fishing lures know only on language and they speak to the fish. Knowing which one to fish with comes from years of experience and being on the water testing new lures. Which swim jig you fish with can translate in to more and bigger bass.
