SpoolTek Lures Releases Extra Heavy 6” Fatty

Coconut Creek, FL – Anglers fishing heavy current and deep water applications will now be able to reach fish they previously couldn’t with the new Extra Heavy 6” Fatty.

The Extra Heavy 6” Fatty will be offered in 6 colors, including Great Sardini, Silver Digger, Electric Ladyfish, After Hours, Gunsmoke and Blue Back Herring.

SpoolTek Lures

Like all SpoolTek Lures, the Extra Heavy 6” Fatty features patented Concealed Leader Technology. After hook-up, a concealed 18” length of 80lb. steel cable leader deploys from an internal spool. This heavy leader provides added abrasion resistance, enabling anglers to tie lighter leader or mainline directly to the lure for a better, stealthier presentation. A deployed leader distances the lure from a fish’s mouth, making it extremely difficult to shake free, greatly improving the ratio of strikes vs. landed fish.

This heavier model takes the success of original 6” Fatty to an even broader range of fresh and saltwater applications, as reported during extensive field testing. Musky anglers accustomed to fishing heavier baits at a faster clip like the way it tracks. Striper guys in the northeast are able to get down to deeper fish in fast current. Offshore saltwater anglers have had success jigging deeper wrecks and reefs in excess of 100 feet for snapper, grouper and other species.

“We knew there was demand for a heavier lure. What’s been amazing are the pictures of such a wide variety of species across the globe that anglers are successfully targeting with the heavier model”, states VP of Sales Chad Perrow.

The Extra Heavy 6” Fatty will be on display at Booth #3487 at ICAST. Appointments with the media, select rep groups and distributors are encouraged. Please direct all inquiries to
