Being the fortunate Neanderthal I am, at ICAST 2013 I was able to see many of the new products the fishing industry has in store for us anglers in the near future. The “ICAST Eye Catcher” series features many of the most innovative and interesting of those new offerings. So, for those of you who couldn’t attend, enjoy!
Current Bassmaster Classic champion, Cliff Pace, is known as one of the best jig designers on the planet. Now, even if you are not a close friend or neighbor, you can fish his jigs, too! Cliff has teamed up with V&M/Cyclone (Bayou Outdoors) to introduce his new Pacemaker Jig series. While the football and flipping versions looked spectacular, we were really drawn to the swim jig line which feature a specially designed head and longer weed-guard that allows the lure to easily slip through grass and cover without getting hung up. The Pacemaker swim jigs are also adorned with an extra stout hook with a slightly wider gap to ensure more solid and frequent hooksets, and extremely tantalizing skirts with lifelike action. Expect to see this one in stores this Fall. MSRP N/A
