Additional Spreader Bar Info:

  • Sterling Tackle Bars can be trolled from flat lines, outriggers or high positions. The bar will skip across the surface and occasionally duck under a wave, only to break out and spray the lures across the surface. It is this repeated action that make spreader bars the "deadliest" lure in the northeast.

  • Internal cigar floats improve tracking and allow the bar to remain floating while fighting a fish on another line.

  • 18" bars should be fished with tackle of 20# class and higher (These are excellent light tackle bars, troll very nicely from outriggers, even way, way, way back)

  • 36" bars should be fished with tackle from 30# class to 80# class

  • Spreader bars work best when trolled 5-8 knots

  • The "spring" in the bar is critical for increased action of outside lures.  Typical oversized 1/8" stainless steel bars do not have the "spring" effect and create excess water drag.
