MINNETONKA, Minn. (June 23, 2014) — Ready to fish right off the rack, new VMC® ice jigs, available in ultra-convenient pre-rigged models, are designed to meet the needs of the Ice Belt’s most serious slab seekers and ‘eye enthusiasts.
Tungsten Tubby Jig
Perhaps the perfect panfish jig, VMC’s Tungsten Tubby Jig boasts a super-fast drop speed, allowing ice anglers to deliver their favorite baits to the strike zone faster.
“The advantage of Tungsten is that it sinks faster than lead,” says VMC pro-staffer Brad Hawthorne. “So a smaller-profile jig can get down to the fish much faster than your traditional lead jig. You’ll be blown away by how quickly they sink. It’s a noticeably faster option on the fall.”
The Tungsten Tubby Jig’s exclusive VMC Power Gap hook features a wider round gap than other micro-jigs of equal weight, greatly increasing your hookup percentage.
“Aside from its falling speed, the Tubby Jig’s most important feature is that Power Gap hook,” Hawthorne says. “The hooks on most other Tungsten jigs out there are really, really small — like fly hooks — and it’s dang near impossible to rig plastics on them, or the type of live bait the fish want.”
And, thanks to the precision balance of its 90-degree hook eye, which ensures an optimal horizontal position of the jig, ice anglers can expect to convert more hits into solid hook sets, and lose fewer fish at the hole.
Tungsten Tubby Jigs come two per pack and are available in three sizes: 1/64 ounce (size 14 hook); 1/32 ounce (size 12 hook); and 1/16 ounce (size 10 hook). They come in two natural color patterns, Crappie Minnow and Mayfly, and six Ultra Glow patterns: Glow, Green Orange Glow, Orange Chartreuse Glow, Pink Chartreuse Glow, Glow Chartreuse and Glow Red. Ultra Glow plastics will glow for as many as 15 minutes on a full charge.
Suggested retail price: $3.99-$4.99
Flap Tail Jig
The Flap Tail Jig is pre-rigged with a Trigger X® Flap Tail Grub (also sold separately), which features a thin-profile, beaver-like tail that creates a flapping action similar to a leech. Split the tail and it will mimic the swimming action of a wounded minnow.
“You get a lot of action with minimal effort when jigging the Flap Tail Jig and Grub,” says Hawthorne.
Like all VMC ice jigs, the Flap Tail Jig features a Power Gap design and 90-degree hook eye. It weighs 1/50 of an ounce, features a size 8 hook, comes two per pack, and is available in two natural color patterns — Crappie Minnow and Mayfly — and six Ultra Glow patterns: Glow, Green Orange Glow, Orange Chartreuse Glow, Pink Chartreuse Glow, Glow Chartreuse and Glow Red. Ultra Glow plastics will glow for as many as 15 minutes after charging.
Suggested retail price: $2.49
Nymph Jig
Pre-rigged with a Trigger X Nymph soft bait (also sold separately) a VMC Nymph Jig resembles the small aquatic insects that fish feed on year-round.
“The Nymph works really well as a primary panfish presentation and a finesse walleye offering,” says VMC pro-staffer Joel Nelson, a regular on the “In-Depth Outdoors” TV show on Fox Sports North.
Like all VMC ice jigs, the Nymph Jig is equipped with a Power Gap design and 90-degree hook eye. It weighs 1/50 of an ounce, features a size 8 hook, and comes two per pack in two natural color patterns — Crappie Minnow and Mayfly — and six Ultra Glow patterns: Glow, Green Orange Glow, Orange Chartreuse Glow, Pink Chartreuse Glow, Glow Chartreuse, Glow Red. Ultra Glow plastics will glow for as many as 15 minutes on a full charge.
Suggested retail price: $2.49
