Our fish-savvy friends at Fin-tech continue to produce deadly tools
for the walleye trade,  The Nuckle Ball "Jitt-R" Jig
combines the deadly versatility of the original stand-up Nuekle Ball
with a reflective blade for added flash and vibration, along with a
unique swimming action and a variety of tipping options. It also excels
on ice. Available in 1/16- and 1/8-ounce sizes with a #2 hook, and 1/4-
and 3/8-ounce weights with a 1/0 hook in 7 Day-Brite Metallic colors.
Retail: $3.40 to $3.86 per 2-pack.  A wide-gap 2/0 Mustad hook makes
the Title SHot Shorty Jig perfect for rigging grubs, tubes, and other
relatively small softbaits in heavy cover. Plus, the collapsible
retainer and hook guard system keeps baits in place while snaking
through snags, but releases on the hookset. New for '09 are a red
hook option and 4 new colors. Comes in 1/8-, 1/4-, and 3/8-ounce sizes.
Retail: $3.22 to $3.72.  Tech Stik fans will appreciate the new EZ
Weight Change Ratt-L-N Tech Stik. Like the original, it's virtually
snag-proof thanks to a tapered shoulder, curved design, and buoyant
body--which also serves as a rattle chamber--while the new weight-change
system eliminates retying. Available in 1/8- to 1-ounce sizes in 3
colors. Retail: $5.49 to $5.99 per 3-pack.
