|Hopkins No=Eql® and Hopkins Shorty® Lures.
No=Eql® lures are the original Hopkins® Lures. They resemble mullet or
herring-type bait fish. Shorty® lures look like butterfish or shad-type bait fish and are
much more compact. Both lures have relatively thick bodies. They are heavier than
conventional spoons of the same length and can be cast much farther.
- Amazing versatility - used for jigging, casting, trolling
and ice fishing
- Hammered stainless steel finish
- Natural swimming action
- Quality construction - body of rust-proof stainless steel
Hopkins Smoothie®. The hammered
pattern is left off these lures, producing a smooth sparkling finish that provides a more
adhesive surface to which prismatic tapes may be affixed. A darker tape is applied to one
side of the lure and a lighter one to the other to simulate the backs and bellies of
baitfish. Eyes are added for realism and are placed at the hook end of the lure.
- Smooth polished stainless steel or gold plated stainless
- Prismatic or glow tape
