Vexed Micros will be launching first in Australia at www.tacklewest.com.au - Coming March 2024
Vexed has now developed the “Micro Meat Hybrid” as a micro version of the Bottom Meat for smaller fish species from boat or shore. This hybrid jig has been designed with whiting in mind to either use on its own, or on the bottom of a paternoster rig as a “Fish Catching Sinker”. 70% or more whiting are caught on the bottom dropper hook of a traditional paternoster rig. During our testing sessions for sand whiting and king george whiting, we caught more fish on the Micro Meat Hybrid fished as the sinker than we did on the bottom dropper hook.
By using the Micro Meat Hybrid as the sinker, you now have two prime fish catchers down on the seafloor.
These have been tied using super strong and sticky sharp BKK hooks and a carefully selected mix of glow/UV flash fibre and rubber.
Micro Meat is available in a large range of weights from 3.5gm – 130gm, and designed to use small strips of fish or squid as bait for species including whiting, bream, flathead and inshore snapper.
BOTTOM WORM MUTSU
The Vexed “Bottom Worm Mutsu” might be a little bit different to anything you have seen before, but that’s because VEXED has only just created this new concept off the back of its extremely successful big brother “The Vexed Bottom Meat”. Bottom Meat revolutionised reef fishing for demersal species by presenting more attractive baits and by being able to deploy baits deeper and more efficiently using less weight on lighter slow pitch jigging outfits that modern anglers prefer to use.
The Bottom Worm Mutsu has been designed as a micro version of the Bottom Meat, but for lighter outfits and smaller inshore species. It can be used on its own, or on the bottom of a paternoster rig as a “Fish Catching Sinker”. 70% or more whiting are caught on the bottom dropper hook of a traditional paternoster rig. By using the Bottom Worm Hybrid as the sinker, you now have two prime fish catching baits down on the seafloor. During our testing sessions for sand whiting and king george whiting, we caught more fish on the Bottom Worm Hybrid fished as the sinker than we did on the bottom dropper hook.
With a super sharp BKK Mutsu circle hook and a durable, stretchy little scented Vexed Bottom Worm, this will present small soft baits such as worm, pipi, squid, prawn and mussel perfectly. Available in sizes from 3.5gm- 130gm and hook sizes from #10 to #1, Bottom Worm Hybrid’s will suit most fish species from boat, beach, estuary, jetty or river bank.
Bottom Worm Hybrid’s can also be jigged through structure or slowly hopped across the bottom without bait for many inshore species such as bream, flathead and whiting.
