Terminator's New Series of Spinnerbaits Has Fish Seeing Red
Fishing Gear - Based on the theory that gamefish eat injured prey first, many of today's lure manufacturers are placing red hooks on their lures to instigate the predatory strike instinct of bass and other species. Terminator's new Red Series not only features a premium, red, Mustad Ultra Point'" hook and a metallic red head, but also a first-of-its-kind, two tone front blade featuring a premium nickel or gold finish on one side and flashy red paint on the front blade's backside.
Terminator took the 'red rage' to another level by painting the back of the front blade red. Scott Dean, a 2-time Bass Champs™ Trail Points Champion from Dallas explained the red blade's purpose. "It's no secret that throughout history, most of fishing's most successful lures featured a touch of blood-mimicking red paint.
So in the early 90's I was looking for ways to add an extra splash of red to my Spinnerbaits when I started using red fingernail polish to paint the cup side of my spinnerbait backside Of blades," explained Dean. "By painting just the backside of the front blade, you preserve the proven gold or nickel flash on the front of the blade, yet you're still showing bass a different look with the strike stimulating red on the back of the blade. Terminator has added just enough red to this series of lures to be effective yet not too obnoxious," added Dean.
Each Red Series Spinnerbait comes dressed with Terminator's exclusive and easy to change QuickSkirt'M. Made of high-quality silicone, the QuickSkirt'M is fishing's only skirt that can easily be taken on and off a spinnerbait or buzzbait without coming unraveled. Each rear blade on a Red Series Terminator spinnerbait is a premium, beveled-edge, 24-carat gold or nickel-plated willow or Oklahoma blade.
One component that's often overlooked by consumers and manufacturers when it comes to Spinnerbaits and jigs is the shape and design of the lure's head," explained Terminator's Alan McGuckin. "Rounder heads on a spinnerbait tend to perform better in thick wood habitat like bushes and laydowns, where as narrow heads are best suited in aquatic vegetation. The Terminator Red Series' metallic red head has a pointed nose and a rounded belly, so it won't hang up in brush and rips through weeds with ease," he explained.
The new Terminator Red Hot Series of Spinnerbaits will be available in two sizes, 3/8 and 1/2 ounce, eight different blade and color combos and they will sell for around $7 each.
