Snowbee Stinger Skad lures

Stinger Skad Lures

Our Stinger Skad lures have revolutionised the lure fishing market with regular reports of them out-fishing many previous market leaders!
Combining over 100 years of experience, with much of that time spent fishing Channel wrecks out of Plymouth, the Snowbee sea fishing product development team, pooled their knowledge and experience to create the Skad.

The lifelike action of the Skad, is the result of years of research and testing, to create the perfect lure. Using a high grade, natural scent PVC material, resulted in a highly durable lure that will not tear apart, the first time a fish hits it.

The highly elastic tail is able to ‘stretch’ when fish are ‘biting shy’, rather than snap-off, as has been the case with some lures. This new material is also unique, in that it is crystal clear, unlike many of our competitors, whose lures use an opaque material. The advantage of this clarity is a clear light reflection, off the outer surface, coupled with an enticing holographic shimmer, off the internal lead-weight foil wrap – a combination which any predatory fish finds irresistible.

 

3350The tail has a series of moulded ‘slots’ down each side, while the oversized ‘paddle’ tail, is angled forward along the bottom edge. This combination not only creates an exaggerated tail action, even at very low speeds, but also sets up additional undersea noise – a proven fish attractor.
Fitted with over-size, ultra-sharp hooks, to ensure fish stay hooked plus large, holographic eyes – a known ‘trigger point’ for any predatory fish. Shop now

Stinger Skad ‘Magnum’
Following the success of the original Skad lures, we were constantly asked for a bigger lure, particularly for the monster Cod, Coalfish and Salmon found off Norway, Orkney and Shetland… so here it is… the Skad Magnum! 3352And believe us when we say size matters! Big bait… big fish – simple as that!fullsizeoutput_4e53

The Skad can be fished on a traditional long flowing trace and boom, over reef or wrecks, for species such as pollack, cod and ling, or used as a casting lure for inshore species such as bass, pollack, mackerel etc.

Either way, they are lethal fish catchers! On our first trip with the prototype samples, aboard the Snowbee ‘Deep Blue3’, just a single lure accounted for over a dozen fish, including ling to nearly 20lbs. The lure? A little chewed up, as you’d expect, but quite capable of fishing again… and again!
