Tightlines UV Lures’ new Hy-Brid Craw is rapidly gaining visibility among the tackle industry’s largest retailers and distributers.
The hot swimbait is the latest in the brand’s Whisker Series and was one of several new lures introduced to the public at the 2019 Bassmaster Classic held in Knoxville.
The team unveiled three new body types with extreme features to land big bass in any type of water conditions, including murky water which is generally prevalent this time of year in the Midwest and in the South.
“Our anglers are constantly asking for new designs and new technology,” Tightlines UV President Brett Ware said. “They know we work year-round to continuously build on our patented UV technology and create even more realistic baits. Mimicking actual live prey is obviously our number one goal and our patented UV technology is something no other competitor can offer. Our color concepts are the best in the industry. “
The 2019 Hybrid Craw is available in a wide range of colors and sizes providing excellent visibility in murky or dirty water from spring rainfall. To push the bait to the next level, two additional characteristics were added to build on the UV technology; a clicking craw sound from a rattle positioned in the craw tail and an added natural craw scent.
In addition to the Hy-Brid Craw, Tightlines UV also rolled out an extremely innovative finesse style bait.
“This is such a cool concept, it’s very finesse, fishes slow and can be fished on a mushroom-style head,” Ware noted. “It’s so innovative, yet catches fish in such a simple way.”
The bait is featured in several different color patterns such as bubble gum and a pearl essence providing visibility any angler can use.
The final bait revealed at the Classic this year was the Tightlines UV Sowbelly. Built in 3 ½-inch, 5-inch and 6-inch sizes, these baits were literally the granddaddy of the show.
The 6-inch MG shad patterned bait is chubby and fat; giving it a much bigger profile. It features an added rattle in the tail along with the brand’s patented, one-of-a-kind UV visibility. The Sowbelly also has the added natural shad scent.
This beast of a bait not only provides the angler the advantage of the UV Vision technology, but provides a much bigger target, noise generation and prey specific natural scent.
While these baits are available now from select, preferred Tightlines UV dealers, as well as from the company’s website www.uv-tackle.com, anglers can expect to find these new products in large retail stores and from online dealers within the next few weeks.
