I have been guiding fishing charters for over 15 years, targeting salmon and halibut on the west coast out of my 24′ Seasport. I use the highest quality gear and tackle. This past season I was lucky to be introduced to the CJ Special Lure by Gibran White. I had the opportunity to try a few different sizes and colours. Charlie Jones’ lures were high producers this season. Most days, out fishing some of my favorite, tried and true lures, that I have relied on in the past. I tested the CJ Specials against some of the top brands of tackle. They out fished my favorite gear 3 to 1 and my days! I used the 3, 3.5, and the 4 inch greens, purples, and glow-in-the-dark’s, trailing them behind hotspot flashers. As a fishing guide, I rely on tackle that is easy to fish and produces in all conditions. I loved the CJ special, as it didn’t matter how many fish fish we hooked into, it never lost its shape and continued to have great action. In fact, I only had a of few CJ’s lures to try out, so I ended up fishing one lure until there wasn’t a spot of paint left on it! Any other lure would have been bent out of shape by that point, but the CJ Special kept on hammering big springs. It was amazing! When you’re guiding, you need to be able to get you’re gear back into the water fast. These lures are ready to go with no tweaking so I’m always fish, which means more fish in the boat for my guests.
Thanks Charlie, The CJ Special made a great season even better!
