One of the most lifelike lures you'll ever see, Mustad InkVader Octopus Jig looks, moves, and even squirts black ink just like the real thing. Constructed from a highly supple yet super tough TPE material, the InkVader's eight tentacles respond to every movement of the rod tip with intense realism. The InkVader is most effectively deployed with a vertical jigging technique around reefs and other bottom structure where octopus may hide, but is also effective when slow trolled or even dead-sticked, as the slightest current or movement of the boat is enough to bring the free flowing tentacles to life. The heads are equipped with two different line-tie points to cater towards different approaches. Each InkVader Jig comes with 10 ink tablets that can be added to the head cavity, and will allow the lure to disperse a non-toxic and soluble black ink infused with actual octopus scent. This feature brilliantly mimics the behavior of an octopus fleeing from predators, and only heightens the InkVader's unprecedented realism. There are many different iterations of the InkVader to choose from, including three different sizes, ten different weight options, and nine photorealistic color patterns modeled after actual species of octopus.

I dropped down once in South Carolina in 135’ of water before I even hit bottom and came back up with the lead and the assist hooks and no fish. Tried a 2nd one and made it to bottom but no matter how much I was getting tugged on I couldn’t get tight. They’re after the octopus arms not the weight/hooks.
ProsLooks good, got bit quick
ConsDestroyed in one use.

Not as cool as it looks

This will catch more fisherman than fish. I got skunked last time out using only these and the two other guys were catching boat load with conventional speed jigs

Great jig.

The ink tablets will start falling apart if your hands or the jig are wet. It stained my hands, could not get it off until I used some Gojo.

One tablet lasts maybe 4-5 casts.

I did catch a fluke on this jig, there was no tablet in, had a small piece of bait off of one of the trailer hooks.

Where do I start. The hooks are low quality. You should expect more from a Mustad product. The “ink” is all hype. It is difficult to load and takes a couple days to wash off. The actual skirts will not last and tear quickly on larger fish such as snapper. May be good for smaller species but I cannot recommend for larger ones.

Swims like a real octopus, caught two big red snapper on this guy!
ProsSoft and natural feel and swims like real.
ConsThe ink scent tablets don't last that long used a garlic scented attracted or a small piece of squid for scent.

These are great baits in the North pacific for rockfish and halibut. I brought one of these to Alaska for a trip and we absolutely killed them, it was non stop action. This lure has awesome action and I love the assist hooks.
