Lunkerhunt's Vacuum

Lunkerhunt's Vacuum


A Midwest finesse angler recently pointed out that Lunkerhunt of Toronto, Ontario, has added a new finesse worm to its line of soft-plastic lures. This angler thought that we should spread the word about it on the Finesse News Network and in our Midwest Finesse column. And we agreed with him.

This new worm is called the Vacuum. When a Midwest finesse angler affixes it to a mushroom-style jig, it is 31/2 inches long with a curled tail. But when that angler is retrieving it around a black bass' lair by employing either the swim-glide-and-shake or hop-and-bounce retrieve, its tail uncurls, and it becomes a five-inch worm. During the retrieve, the tail executes a rippling effect.

From the tip of its flat nose to the junction of its curled tail, its torso is encircled with 18 pronounced ribs. The texture of its torso is soft and impregnated with fish-protein scent. They are not impregnated with salt.

It is available in the following colors: Black, Black Blue Fleck, Brown Pumpkin, Merthiolate, Smoke, and Watermelon.

Anglers can purchase a package of 10 for $4.99.

(2) Lunkerhunt recommends that anglers affix the Vacuum Texas-style to Lunkerhunt's 1/4-ounce Shakey Head jig, which is poured around a 4/0 hook. (Here is a link that focuses on their new Shakey Head: But Midwest finesse anglers will rig it to a smaller jig and hook, such as a 1/32-ounce mushroom-style jig with a No. 6 hook, 1/16-ounce mushroom-style jig with a No. 4 hook, and a 3/32-ounce mushroom-style jig with a No. 2 hook.
