Hybrid UV / Bladed Hybrid
The detail that can make the difference: add a 7548 Bladed Hybrid or a 7547 Hybrid UV to trigger the attack. The blade adds vibration and luminous flashes that can truly entice zanders, while the UV tinsels provide an additional UV stimulus. These two options should be regularly tested during your sessions and can persuade fish that wouldn't bite without these stimuli.
Many anglers like to add a stinger to soft lures to ensure hookups! VMC's stinger range is available in Fluorocarbon or steel. Ready to use, these extensions can be positioned on top of the lure or underneath by passing through the body of the soft lure.
The Frog Jig was clearly developed to meet the specific demands of zander fishing. Whether in linear or vertical fishing style. Available in 7, 10, 14, 17, and 21g, it should accompany you in all your sessions, with all your lures:
The hook is fine and ultra-sharp, allowing for instant penetration on the strike.
Its Technical Locking Curve shape results in fewer fish getting unhooked.
You have a choice of two colors, Natural Green and Firetiger, to match not only your lures but also the water conditions. In short, it's a concentrated technology that will allow you to fish for zander with confidence in both linear and vertical approaches!
The latest addition to VMC®'s jighead range is the Dart Jig. As the name suggests, it allows for darting, meaning erratic swimming action that moves your lure randomly from side to side with the slightest movement of your rod. Animated with small twitches, this jighead can entice inactive fish due to its highly erratic swimming action. This type of animation is highly appreciated by perchs. In the smaller weights (3g, 5g, 7g), it should work wonders.
Available in Ghost Chartreuse for a strong contrast with the water or in Matt Craw for a more natural appearance. As usual, both work; you just need to alternate and experiment to find the right combo of jighead+lure.
Its ultra-sharp and rather thin but sturdy hook will easily penetrate zander mouths. Be aware: it's thin but strong. During testing phases, the testing teams in France, Italy and Spain caught numerous catfish. Available in 3, 5, 7, 10, 14g.
Available from 2024, VMC's Twitchin Jig lead head will undoubtedly stand out due to its technicality and incredible swimming action:
Rabbit skin for completely wild swimming action. During vertical tests, the results were astonishing. The unique property of rabbit skin is its ability to expand and contract with water, providing significant value underwater. Without any animation required, the Twitchin Jig clearly made a difference on many occasions. In a linear approach, its swimming action remains the same, but you have the option to vary the intensity of the animations. Our advice: no need for extensive animations on this head; small twitches will suffice to entice them! Zander are particularly fond of crayfish, and the subaquatic swimming motion of this jig is quite similar. Check out the video to confirm this subaquatic motion.
- UV tinsels
- UV paint
- Silicone fibers
In short, a mix of components with different densities allows for a lure that fish have never seen before. Bringing innovative products is what sets you apart in fishing. Available in 10, 14, and 21g, the Twitchin Jig will clearly be a must-have in the VMC range. Its effectiveness has been proven on zander but also on pike, bass, catfish, and even trout (King Kong color)! Its hook is clearly strong; you can pull on it without worry!
Often essential when you need to adapt quickly and change lures, TechSet Snaps are perfect for this purpose. Their relatively thin profile and Black coating allow them to remain discreet, even invisible, underwater.
Available in 6 sizes, you undoubtedly have the size you need. Don't waste any more time; print these snaps to scale to avoid mistakes during selection: print, compare, fish.
CRANK BAIT SNAP
Its big sister, the CrankBait Snap, is rounder and provides total freedom to the lure. Also available in 5 sizes with a Black coating, it's the essential accessory to always have in your bag.
