Specialty Chains

Crazy 8

This chain has 8 successive  5" skirted birds with a snap swivel under the last teaser for easy change of machine stinger.  These 8 birds tear up a long line of splash on the surface followed by a machine stinger just below the surface.  It has proven to catch very well in the long rigger position but can be used anywhere in your spread. You can buy this chain without a stinger if you would like to try out your own stinger. We recommend using a 9" Machine. You can select your stinger on the product page.

Suggested Spread Location: Long Rigger or Down the Middle just behind Long Rigger

Deep Runner 48

This deep running chain weighs 48oz when using the recomended 5 3/4oz Joe Shute stinger.  The front squids are loaded with lead.  It tracks deep below the surface depending on your speed and how far back you troll it. It has been proven for both yellowfin(right in the middle even with long riggers) and bluefin(way way back). We recommend using a 5 3/4 Joe Shute with a Crystal skirt as the stinger. You can select your stinger on the product page. Feel free to experiment with other stingers.

Suggested Spread Location: Flat Line - close to the boat or near the back of the spread

Light Sterling/Joe Shute Chain:  $44

This is a great surface chain as the lead bird makes a commotion and keeps this chain on top while the rest of the lures track just below the surface with a killer swimming ballyhoo following it up. It can be pulled in any position in your spread, but if you flat line it you will have to clip it down to keep the bird in the water.

Starts with a 7” lead bird- then (3)-1oz Sterling Island Witches- then the stinger is a 1oz Joe Shutes- pin rigged for ballyhoo- Mustad 7691 8/0 Hook,  8’ 130# Momoi Smoke Blue Leader(See pics below).
