    Alex, I know these things ain't cheap but you could probably hit the bottom of the jig with a black sharpie. I'm always tinkering with my lures.

    A little Background on the waxwings.

    The waxwings are Shimano's latest lure offering. Previous creations, the butterfly jigs and the lucanus jigs, were designed to target the mid and bottom range of the water column, while the new Waxwing was designed to fill the void above. Whether your fishing Calicos in the kelp, Yellows on the outside, or even tuna on the banks, the waxwing will get the job done.

    The wings serve two purposes. The upper wing gives the jig the wide zigzag action which essentially drives fish into a frenzy, while the lower wing acts as a rudder, keeping the jig upright and swimming consistently.

    The jigs currently come in two sizes, the boy and Jr. They are lighter than traditional irons, but because of both their aerodynamic shape, and the lighter gear designed to throw them with, you will find that even the smaller Boy will launch equal or greater distances when compared to a surface iron. They are designed to be tied to straight Power Pro, as this will noticeably increase the "kick".

    All of the colors work, and I have caught fish on most of the above pictured patterns. The "unique" colors such as Bone and Pink/White have caught yellowtail and tuna already.

    Check them out at Meltons, and look for them at your local tackle shop soon. Most retailers will have them within the month, but since Meltons has them now, why not make the drive or place an order. It also looks like Melton's is running some great promotions to go with the baits, so take advantage of them while they last. The waxwings really are amazing, and as I said earlier, they will be a game changer!

    Feel free to PM me if you have any questions...

    Thanks Evan. We've had the opportunity to fish these lures throughout most of 2010. I have only lost one on a rock and none in kelp, etc. If anyone wants to climb up on Seal Rock at Catalina, there's a bone colored Shimano Waxwing Jig up there waiting for you!

    I fished with them last weekend at Clemente. Marc Mills gave me a few to try out. Cool lures. The calicos liked them. They are great in the stringers. Had a yellowtail chase it practically to the boat but didn't eat it :(

    But wait, you also get.....

    These lures also "absolutely drives fish nuts", and the upper wing provides a
    "seductive zigzag motion ... while the lower wing acts as a rudder to prevent rolling"


    At least they aren't over priced, right?

    Black Sharpie included?
