how come they all use dtx minnow and not x-rap
Yah... and nobody wanted to fish them on that trip.
Oooh Baby, you are so sexy. How are you going to rig it?
Too collectible to risk? I only collect memories... that's why I go fishing!
Interesting question. Advertising, Hype, Recommendations on BD?
And then there's the Bomber, modified by Fisherman's Landing, and the Russelure and Striker lure mentioned in another thread. Maybe it's because the others have to be "modified" with better hooks? They seem to be less expensive.
Who told you that?????
they stashed them away like they were gold bars......
Last April, The Pink Bomber's also worked well..
if they raised the price of the other lures that would make them Wahoo killers
That won’t happen this year.
Just to clarify, the top lure is NOT an Original Hooker Intruder Lure. It’s an Invader Lure by AA Lures . I have received calls and emails that JRI produced the Invaders. That is NOT correct. JRI has been working with the original designer of the Hooker Intruder for almost 3 years now.
I guess I can’t knock the guy for trying to capitalize on attempting to imitate the lure by its shape, name or logo. At least he acknowledged that the Hooker Intruder perhaps was the best wahoo lure ever made.
On a happy note, The Original Hooker Intruder by JRI Custom Lures will cost less (MSRP) than the XL LR Invader. The upcoming Intruder will have have quality components such as Sampo Swivels and Mustad hooks.
Dang that must be wahoo tooth proof paint on that pink bomber..no bite marks.
Very excited about the introduction of these in quantities that will make them available and affordable for most if not all anglers. Hats off to Jerry for his perseverance on this project. I participated in a garage business located up here in Bishop, poured a lot of lures for trophy Bass anglers, so have an idea what he's been up against. Have a lot of respect for Jerry’s dedication to quality. It’s not a sprint, more of a marathon for him. Even as the DTX Minnows fly off the shelves, I’m certain that he will have a tough time keeping up with demand for these fish killers.
Curious, what's the difference between the Intruder and the Halco Max 130?
Not trying to stir anything up. I've only used the Halco Max 130 and have never used the intruder. Just curious how it compares to the Halco to help me understand the intruder's characteristics better.
100% correct, if you want a good trolling lure for wahoo it has to cost minimum of $30
Thanks for the kind words Steve. It’s a labor of love no doubt. The original designer is not doing this for monetary value, rather he wants it to be the lure that it should have been decades back. Sadly, serious health issues and other life moments is what caused them to cease operations. Keep in mind, this was in an era when the internet was just being created and LR’ers were a group of secret fishermen that wasn’t main stream as today.
I feel beyond honored to be spear heading this project and hope to make it the lure it should be for the designer who put weeks and weeks of testing on some of the LR boats
Oh no 30 bucks isn't enough to make a lure a good a good seller. I am thinking at least $69.95.
how much do you think it would Sell for,
if it A Eye that Blinked, lol.
