Default knuckle head trolling lure

Can you still get the knuckle head lures for offshore fiishing. I have heard of them but have never seen them. Does anyone have a picture or know where to get them.

Best regards

Josh

Outcast did have them. Whether or not they still carry them I not sure. Give them a call.

I know they are one of Steve Kaisers favorite lures but I heard they've been discontinued. There where a few on the wall at Outcast a year or so back but I haven't looked lately since they added the hunting stuff.

I've got a few around, as was mentioned earlier my dad is friends with Steve Kaiser and Wally and Knuckleheads are pretty much all they pull and with great sucess. I personally have only caught a small shark on them, but I don't get to troll that much and usually when I do I'm trying to target wahoo or dolphin not billfish so I rarely have tried them. Pretty unspectacular looking lure, but word on the street is they work! Try Outcast for them, they may still have a few.

I think Tommy's still got some.

FYI, I'd ditch that double stiff rig on them, though. They're designed to skitter on the surface and cause a little splash and the weight and stiffness of that double rig will keep it from acting right and can lead to fouling. Try the single semi-stiff rig with the hookpoint just beyond the back of the skirt.

i can say from experience that those things definitely work.we pulled one around the nipple 2 years ago for the first time and hooked up on a small blue marlin. i think is was an orange color. one for one is not bad odds.(beginners luck?)i just wish i could find the time to go back and try it again.
