In addition to its extensive range of existing light tackle lures and other small baits such as the Crankster MR 45, Splasher 52, Flatt Shad 54, Rattsler SL 65, Rattsler ML 65, Rattsler VLL 65, Bonga Minnow 72, Stick Shadd 72, Koolie Minnow 76 ML, Koolie Minnow 76 LL, and Magic Swimmer 82, SEBILE will be adding the Spin Shad #0 and 0.5, Crankster MR 35, Flatt Shad 35 SK and Flatt Shad 42 SK for 2011.
“You know, I’ve landed over 600 fish species in fresh and saltwater. Most were not huge and were not caught on very big lures,” says Patrick Sebile. “So I have added these new, small lure models for 2011 based on my own experiences using light tackle.”
“Although small in size, the high quality is no less because even small gamefish species can be as finicky, wary and as difficult to catch as bigger fish. Every new model has been exhaustively tested and the level of the balance, action and adjustment of each lure has been brought as far as I can make each one to be the best possible for you.”
In addition, Sebile has also designed, tested and plans to release Light Game Snaps in 2011. These are perfect for making the connection between light lines/leaders and very small to small lures with subtle action that may be stifled by too heavy a snap.
“Through these new product introductions, I hope that the light tackle angler will discover that SEBILE is a brand for him or her to depend on in 2011 and beyond,” says Patrick.
About the Spin Shad #0 & #0.5
The original Spin Shad won Best Hard Lure of 2009 at ICAST in Orlando, Florida. Now two new sizes of the award-winning Spin Shad are here to complement your light tackle fishing needs. Very few baits in such compact sizes are able to bring so much to you: a very good control and presentation of the bait on the retrieve as well as on the drop, the ability to stay upright and stable in currents but also with a lot of attractive action in calm, still water. The Spin Shad blades are perfectly balanced to the body, to react and work every single second when the lure is in the water. Great for light tackling both fresh and saltwater adventures.
MSRP: Spin Shad #0 $12.00, #0.5 $13.00
About the Crankster MR 35
Finally a small Crankster MR (Medium Runner) for all light tackle fanatics! The 1-3/8″ long, 1/8 oz Crankster 35 features the same frantic cranking action as all models from the Crankster MR family, including a free-floating tungsten ball mass transfer system that increases distance and accuracy on the cast and knocks around inside on the retrieve – a unique combination of features in a crankbait that’s under two inches in length. The strong wire diameter of the hooks enable use of this lure for both fresh and saltwater.
MSRP: Crankster MR 35 $13.00
About the Flatt Shad 35 SK and 42 SK
The Flatt Shad is the only lipless vibration crankbait that truly works at any speed from slow to fast, Now everything about it has been shrunk down as small as practical with the 1-3/8″ long, 1/16 oz 35 SK and the 1-5/8″ long, 1/8 oz 42 SK models that cover light tackle anglers needs for fishing in currents as well as calm water, from streams to lakes and inshore saltwater too. Both new sizes are sinking models that work great for ice fishing also. The 42mm size comes rigged with 2 treble hooks; the 35mm with only one treble, allowing that bait to be so very small and compact yet it still has a big enough hook to hold good-sized fish!
MSRP: Flatt Shad 35 SK $11.25, 42 SK $11.50
