Lifelike Minnow Fry Puts Panfish in Frying Pan
It breathes new life back into tube jigs!

Bemidji, MN – Every self-respecting panfish angler’s tackle box is lines with them; tiny bags of torpedo shaped plastic baits with tentacle tails. Tub jigs formerly owned the hearts and minds of fish and fisherman. But they didn’t look real, and fish soon became conditioned to them. That is, until Northland Fishing Tackle’s® new lifelike series of SLURPIES® SMALL FRY jigs breathed new life back into the popular tube jig category.

The SLURPIES® SMALL FRY is hand sculpted with a lifelike Baitfish-Image™ hollow tube body, and sports a tantalizing teaser tail to mimic one of panfish’s most desired meals…a “young of-the-year” minnow fry. Sparkling “holographic” FishFlakes™ flash and shimmer like iridescent fish scales to lure fish from a wide radius, while a weighted hook is hidden in the hollow tube body, ready to bite back.

“The SLURPIES® SMALL FRY is the most realistic and lethal panfish jig I have ever tied my line to.” says TEAM NORTHLAND® Pro and panfish expert, Brian “Bro” Brosdahl. “It’s soft & chewy, loaded with action and looks like a real minnow fry with oversized eyeballs, fins and scales. They come in all the natural color patterns to match the native forage, and are lethal for casting and jigging around weeds, brush, docks and bridge pilings. Crappie, perch, bluegill, bass and trout wait in line to slurp up this tasty little minnow! They “match-the-hatch” and are as good as or better than live bait!”

The SLURPIES® SMALL FRY comes in 1 1/2″ and 2″ sizes, and available in 6 realistic Baitfish-Image® color patterns.
