Shop Madd Mantis
If you want to get fish fighting mad, you might want to stock your tackle box with some of the Madd Mantis Tackle Works fishing lures available at TackleDirect. Made by David Stingo, aka the Mantis, this exciting new lineup of lures can help you catch more fish.
Aiming primarily at saltwater gamefish but suitable for large freshwater fish too, these lures are built tough. Madd Mantis jointed swimbaits, for instance, are overbuilt. The joints boast a pullout strength close to 130 pounds of pressure, meaning they can handle that potential world record you hook. Their lively swimming action will entice striped bass and other predators.
Madd Mantis also makes many other lures suitable for all types of fishing. Choose from jigs for fishing deep. These are designed to imitate popular prey like sand eels and bay anchovies. They're killers for bluefish, striped bass and bluefin and yellowfin tuna. For the unbeatable thrill of triggering strikes on the surface during blitzes, make sure to pick up a few Madd Mantis poppers and pencil poppers.
Choose from a variety of sizes and colors to suit your species and locale. These baits come unrigged, letting you customize each one with exactly the right hooks for your situation.
