Bemidji, Minn. – In a victory for panfish fans seeking a new secret weapon for tackling slab crappies, broad-shouldered bluegills and portly perch, Northland Fishing Tackle unveils the new IMPULSE® Helium Series.
Comprised of a trio of lightweight knockouts, the lineup includes the Helium Waxyfly, Helium Mayfly and Helium Stonefly. All feature a lead-free metal head that engenders a tantalizing slow fall similar to that of wispy panfish flies. Fish them on ice or open water, either solo or as deadly droppers dangled below larger spoons.
“A prolonged descent is perfect when pressured panfish are scrutinizing the jig,” says legendary slab stalker Brian “Bro” Brosdahl, who helped design the groundbreaking baits. “The Helium Waxyfly, Mayfly and Stonefly mimic bugs hatching out of the bottom, in their color, shape and natural, slow-gliding fall.”
Hand-tied hackle and a 90-degree jig hook, which aids in a perfectly horizontal presentation, further enhance realism. For added fish appeal, all three are pre-rigged with scrumptious softbaits fortified with Northland’s irresistible IMPULSE® attractant. Blended with a baked-in MicroPlankton™ formula that makes fish hit hard and hang on tight, IMPULSE® baits have been scientifically proven 143 percent more effective than other brands in rigorous laboratory testing.
The 1/150-ounce Helium Waxyfly features a #12 hook and chunky, ½-inch, bug-like IMPULSE® Waxy body with realistic creepin’ worm legs that imitate euro-larvae and waxworm spikes to perfection. Tipping the scale at a svelte 1/100 ounce, the Helium Mayfly wields a #10 hook and is paired with a 1-inch IMPULSE® Mayfly body armed with quivery legs and a supple yet detailed torso. At 1/50 ounce, the Helium Stonefly sports a #8 hook and 1.6-inch IMPULSE® Stonefly body with dual antennas, a multi-segmented body and lifelike legs.
