The Rapala® Clackin’ Magnum® combines an attention-grabbing clackin’ cadence rattle with Rapala’s tried-and-true wounded minnow action to give Dad a bait that big fish simply can’t ignore. Perfect for trolling slow or fast, this versatile lure’s deep-diving lip makes it easier than ever to quickly reach the desired depth, keeping the bait in the “strike zone” longer and upping the odds of landing a lunker. The Clackin’ Magnum comes in 10 eye-catching color patterns and is ready for action with extra tough VMC® Treble Hooks.
Rapala® X-Rap® Magnum®
Built for battle with aggressive saltwater species, the X-Rap® Magnum® features a massive diving lip that plunges the bait into the depths with ease. Its sleek design allows it to be fast-trolled at speeds up to 13 knots, making it a great choice for targeting behemoth fish worldwide. Boasting a textured, translucent body and internal holographic foil, when Pops ties on the X-Rap Magnum, he’d better have a buddy ready with the net. Available in four sizes and more than a dozen finishes, this lure will be the hero of Dad’s next fishing story.
Williamson® Hard Baits
The perfect gift for saltwater anglers who dream of epic battles with the world’s most lively game fish, Williamson’s most popular hard baits, the Popper Pro®, Surface Pro® and Speed Pro Deep®, will perfectly fill out Dad’s tackle box.
Williamson® Popper Pro
A small package that promises massive strikes, the Popper Pro’s versatile design allows the Big Guy to fish a variety of proven techniques — pop it on top of the water, slash and stall, or walk the dog — for a presentation that will heat up the bite in any scenario. Featuring an in-line hook designed for optimum swimming action, point exposure and hook set, the Popper Pro comes in seven life-like color patterns and two sizes for targeting coveted pelagic game fish.
Williamson® Surface Pro
Expertly crafted with a precisely weighted body that allows anglers to achieve maximum casting distance, the Surface Pro may quickly become the Old Man’s go-to bait for thrilling topwater fishing. Whether he chooses to pop it on the surface, slash and stall or employ a deadly walk-the-dog presentation, this lure can be fished with a range of techniques to coax bites from hesitant snook and tarpon, as well as tuna and cobia. Also available in two sizes and seven eye-catching finishes and outfitted with VMC® Heavy-Duty In-line Hooks, Dad is sure to appreciate a bait with this much fish-catching potential
Williamson® Speed Pro Deep
Thanks to its deep-diving lip and self-centering “Auto-Tune” line tie system, the Speed Pro Deep is able to rip through the water at speeds up to 15 knots, with optimum action at 6 to 10 knots. It’s smooth swimming action sets the bait a step above lesser lures and enables anglers to fish it on lighter line — even with a light drag setting — for a more intense fight. The fast-moving bait is available in two sizes and seven enticing color patterns. The Speed Pro Deep comes ready to fish with rugged VMC® Heavy-Duty Perma Steel® Hooks.
