The Original Nasty’s Thumper, a patent-compliant bladed swim jig featuring the best available components: an incredibly sharp and strong Gamakatsu® hook, a hand-tied skirt around a silicone core, and a reliable snap. Local anglers quickly figured out that the Nasty’s Thumper, unlike other patent-compliant bladed jigs, has a unique hunting action that triggers reaction strikes in shallow water. Instead of constantly locking up and creating frustration for anglers, the Nasty’s Thumper will dart around erratically like injured prey. The Nasty’s Thumper will run similar to other bladed jigs on a standard retrieve. This lure was released in January 2013.
Pro Tip: When using a swimbait style trailer, such as the Lake Fork Trophy Lures Live Magic Shad ®, trim the skirt even with the hook on your Nasty’s Thumper before adding the trailer. When using a trailer with legs, like a Mister Twister ® Buzz Bug, trim the skirt to the end of the body where it will allow the legs to move freely.
