PROVEN WAHOO KILLER SURFACE IRON BACK IN STOCK.... We sold out almost immediately from our last order.. Thank Goodness we received our latest order. Everything is now back on the racks. The Jri 2's, battle tested for several years, are ringed with the standard Siwash J Hook. THE NEWEST Wahoo Special JRI 4 come with the Owner Stinger J hooks, ringed and welded, with incredibly vibrant colors and finishes.. Certainly worth the extra cost for these more expensive hooks. Wahoo just can't say no to these Skinny Desserts.. All of These Irons are super easy to use... Cast out and slow retrieve to allow for the biggest kick the jigs can have... Don't be the one's watching as folks who know how effective these jigs are put on a surface show. So much fun as you watch those Skinnys chase and blow up on these jigs. By the way, Tuna and Yellowtail eat them too. STAY TUNED FOR OUR JRI JIG SHOW SPECIALS... YOU WILL WANT TO STOCK UP BEFORE THEY SELL OUT AGAIN. Check these babies out.

Good evening all,

A few days ago we received our Latest order of the NEWEST MEMBER OF THE JRI FAMILY of Jigs... These new versions of the JRI 4 with OWNER Uber sharp hooks are off the chain beautiful and ready to slay the Wahoo. We do have a LIMITED SUPPLY of these two colors with 2 more colors on the way...


Like all the Wahoo surface Iron I have used over many years I retrieve these jigs slowly.. Just fast enough to get their best swim pattern and largest kick.. My opinion is that ripping fast these jigs like a bomb for Wahoo does notyield the results that I get on the slower retrieve..I find the best results for Wahoo Surface iron are on flatter water and calmer days.

These JRI beauties are proven Wahoo Slayers so come on in to Bob Sands Tackle and be amongst the first non inside jig testers to fish them.
. PAIR THEM UP WITH THE SOMEWHAT SMALLER JRI 2 WITH STANDARD SIWASH SURFACE IRON TO COMPLETE YOUR ARSENAL..

THIS SEASON CONTINUES TO BE A GREAT WAHOO YEAR. IF YOU ARE GOING OUT SOON, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THESE IN YOUR TACKLE BOX..

THE VISUALS OF SEEING WAHOO EXPLODE ON SURFACE IRON IS WORTH THE PRICE OF ADMISSION.. AND, I FIND I LOSE FEWER SURFACE IRON THAT ANY OTHER METHODS OF FISHING THOSE RASCALLY SKINS...

HOPE TO SEE YOU AT THE SHOP SOON. HAVE A GREAT SEASON.

JAMIE

The only “wahoo candy” from JRI that interests me, is the “mirage” of a replica Hooker Intruder..........aaahhh

Sweet they look epic.

Are the irons with the eyes. Inspired and modified A2Z jigs reincarnated. A long range captain gave me a original A2Z and said its the wahoo surface iron to use, had a stock treble. I can't find it bummed. Glad to see they have been brought back. Well I'm sure there are slight changes and hook changes which would make it swim different :D so not really the same I guess. But similiar.

These are bitchen. I too like to try the surface iron for wahoo. Usually late in a jig stop or on the anchor it's really challenging. Wind those JRI's Sloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooowww!

I throwing Raiders and Sea Strike 33's for Wahoo. I use a couple of Avet HXJ's with a Calstar 700XH and a Calstar BT6465H and when I get a hook up it's wind wind wind with no pumping of the rod.
So my question is what rod and reel combos do you use for surface iron and what is technique does one use to get the fish to the boat?

Casting Raders, JRI 4's or JRI Hooacide Bombs I gear up with couple of Avet Raptor JX 6/3's with a Calstar 800XH and a Pheonix PHD 809 XH. TA clip for quick change, Double Fluro to surgens loop to spectra and also strongly agree "when hooked up it's wind, wind, wind only".
Tight lines Lou!
