Grooved head and actuating line tie


As you can see from the first couple of pictures, the Thunder Cricket features a different actuating line tie that is free to move and not attached to the head and the blade is also uniquely shaped. The combination of the two gives this vibrating jig what I would call a tighter, higher-pitched vibration which I like in a lot of instances.

The flat head and narrow profile skips really well with a good compact soft plastic trailer, which is nice when I want to skip it under boat docks where bass are often feeding on smaller bluegill and young forage .
