Pitbull Tackle The Killer

The Pitbull Tackle The Killer is a custom designed, UV enhanced lure comprised of a skirted jig head with a double tail grub extending out the back. An original design is hard to come by these days, but Pitbull Tackle has created an absolute game changer with The Killer Jigs. So what makes this bait so special? The design of The Killer provides fishermen with the perfect profile to imitate exactly what bottom dwelling predators are feeding on: squid, octopus, lamprey, cod, sculpin, and various other baitfish species. Additionally, all of the colors are UV enhanced so they are visible to fish at almost any depth. For added attraction, the three lighter colors are also glow infused so they actually glow in the dark as well.

Pitbull constructed the jig head using a super sharp, super strong hook that is certain to handle the meanest of predatory fish.The head of The Killer is a custom made UV enhanced hoochie which houses the internal jig head. This provides a more natural appearance and a streamlined head design. Behind the head extends a UV enhanced double tail scampi style grub that gives the bait the awesome swimming action that has proven effective trip after trip. We've tested The Killer Jig all the way down the Pacific Northwest and it has proven successful on Halibut, Ling Cod and Rockfish, Seabass, and countless other species. One of the great things about this bait is when it sinks down to the depths, you never know what might pull back.

We offer the Pitbull Tackle The Killer in four sizes: 2oz, 4oz, 6oz and 8oz. All come one per pack.

The Killer Jig Lengths (front of head to end of tails):
2oz: 6.75 inches
4oz: 6.75 inches
6oz: 10.5 inches
8oz: 12 inches

How To Fish

The Killer Jig was designed to be an effective bait for bottom-jigging. Free-Spool the bait down until it hits bottom and your line has slacked out. Once on the bottom, the bait should be jigged up and down by raising and lowering the rod tip. There are two main jigging techniques for this bait.

Controlled Jigging: One option is to lift the jig off the bottom, and let the jig fall slowly by controlling its decent with the rod tip. This will cause the bait to fall straight down, and gives the angler more of a precise feel. This technique works especially well for jigging dock pilings or other structure where repeated drops in the same small area are crucial. This technique also allows for a more natural action of the twin-tail swimbait and can be an excellent strategy in clear-water situations, especially when the bites are subtle and hard to detect.

Slack Line Jigging: For a more erratic action, letting the bait drop with slack line will cause it to fall in a much more aggressive manner. When falling on slack line, the bait will dart in a given direction as it drops. This gives the bait an erratic action, as it combines the kicking of the swimbait tails with a deadly darting action. The faster sinking on slack line will also cause the swimbait tails to kick furiously, adding even more complexity to the presentation. This can be a deadly-effective strategy when targeting aggressive fish or covering larger areas of bottom structure by casting out and jigging the bait back towards the boat.

Great jig June 6, 2018
Reviewer: Shawn Pate from Fairfield , CA United States  
Jig works great for big lings. I found it a bit light at 200ft with a drift though at only 8 oz. . Be great if offered in 12-16 oz.
