Freedom Tackle adds the Brush-Less Jig & XL Minnowby Grant Pentiricci July 18, 2015
They’ve taken their interchangeable hook design and used it to provide a jig head that maximum action. What is very cool about this jig is that there is no brush guard. By removing it from the design they have changed the game again. You can swap out the hook to put on any type of hook you want and this jig-head will allow it to swing freely behind preventing snags. Like all of the other Freedom Tackle lures which feature a 60 degree recessed line tie, fish will not be able to use the jig-head to get leverage and throw your hook once you set it.
The XL minnow is being heralded as the spoon for all seasons by Freedom Tackle. The spoon can be cast, jerked, or vertically jigged and it has a combination of flash and fluttering action. This spoon would be great for targeting bass, or any fish species, that is schooling and eating baitfish. The minnow spoon also has applications through the ice as an icefishing spoon for vertical jerking. There is ample evidence online that the Freedom Tackle Minnow spoon is effective for this, so to add a larger XL Minnow makes sense.
The XL Minnow is designed around a high quality metal spoon and features a metal shaft running vertically through it’s body. On the top and bottom of the shaft, the Freedom Minnow is fitted with a metal bead and a glass bead that hit against the blade creating underwater noise. The XL Minnow is fitted with chemically-sharpened, black nickel trebles as well. This bait can be worked many different ways and those of you who have thrown spoons can just imagine how good this one will be!
