Tackle Industries, owned by
James Haworth, was a real standout for me. James and I spoke at
some length and I was impressed, not only with his products, but
with his obvious enthusiasm for what he does. His most notable
product is his line of swim baits, especially the 4 sizes of
plastic swim/jerk baits.
Over the years I have heard many Musky
anglers lament on how a Musky strike on the Musky Innovations
swim baits renders the bait useless. James Haworth has addressed the
problem with an approach he calls a "Full Body Lock Coil
Harness". Sure, the flexible rubber get tooth damage but the
internal construction maintains the lure’s usability. All this
and they are less expensive than the Musky Innovations products.
Oh yes...Over 75% of his profits go to
veteran’s and children’s charities…so if you want to support our
troops and help children’s charities at the same time,
purchasing a lure of two will accomplish that.
These lures are available in shallow and deep versions as well
as having different size options.
They are available in over 35 different
colors combinations so regardless of whether the water you
are fishing is stained or clear; you should not have a
problem finding a lure in which you have confidence.
