The much anticipated (at least by me) release of The Lunker Thumper bladed jig has arrived. The Lunker Thumper is a 1 oz. bladed jig with a premium snap and a massive customized 8/0 Mustad hook. By the end of October we plan to offer the bait in a few colors, some classics (White/Chart, Pearl, and Black&Blue) and some premium colors that are meant to match large prey for largemouth bass (Gizzard Shad, Live Perch, Bar Fish and Fork Filet Mignon). The first color is going to be released tomorrow in minimal quantities to select tackle shops around Lake Fork, and it will be White/Chartreuse.

With the Big Bass Splash tournament around the corner, I couldn't think of a better time to release a bait that I customized with giants in mind. Lots of baits are designed to catch fish; this lure was designed to specifically target larger fish. I hope you guys will give The Lunker Thumper a shot this weekend, and that some TFFers will bring in a giant over during the tournament. Some of the particulars about The Lunker Thumper:

*8/0 Mustad hook - this lure is designed to hold 5-inch to 8-inch swimbaits and the prototypes were tested using the 5.5" and 8" Lake Fork Trophy Lures Live Magic Shad

*Raised ring collar measured and set to hold a premium hand-tied flair skirt

*Quad-keeper - a four-way keeper that is designed to hold swimbaits and not let them slide down on you before you catch your first fish with the lure

*Realistic jig head with large molded 3D bubble eyes

*A unique snap that is designed to hold larger game fish like muskie (and giant bass)


MSRP will be around $7.99. If you guys have any questions, feel free to PM me or give me a call (my number is listed on my website).

Doc, these baits NEED to be tested on CB! Let me know which color will entice one of those 13+'s you catch several of every year, and I'll do what I can to make sure you get it. roflmao

Barry, you are one of the very few dealers who got their hands on the first shipment. The big fish on Fork eat the larger prey. I can't wait to get the materials to make the premium colors. I want to have them out for SAL season. I wish this process was faster, but some of the material going into the premium skirts is being made exclusively for the Lunker Thumpers!

I had an opportunity to stop by and check on supplies yesterday. The Minnow Bucket has one left, Barry at Oak Ridge has a few left, LFT in Emory has a few left, and I stocked Ernie Dye at Lake Fork Resort. I'm impressed with how quickly Ernie and James have gotten the tackle shop at LFR up and running. I'm also planning to stock the Fun N' Sun store in Hurst once I have a few more options available.

I am heading to Table Rock this week, but will check back when I return. Thank you all for all of the support and feedback this year.

The complete line-up is now available for sale. They won't be available on my website for a couple of weeks, but you can place an order via PM or e-mail. The website is currently going through a makeover, and I hope to have it finished by the end of the year. The web developer doesn't expect any downtime while he is working on it.

Our good friends at Fun N' Sun in Hurst have already requested the complete line-up. We will be delivering to them, as well as some of our dealers in other states who pre-ordered, in the next couple of weeks.

Again, please excuse the quality of the photos. I should have better quality ones in the next couple of weeks.
