A fishing staple in the Northwest and Great Lakes for more than 80 years, Luhr-Jensen is synonymous in those regions with Trout, Kokanee, Salmon, Steelhead, Bass and Walleye fishing.
From trolling and casting spoons, to spinners and crankbaits, Luhr-Jensen fishing lures and accessories have defined angler success since 1932. Among the most successful and respected baits in that tradition is the Needlefish, a top performer for Trout and Kokanee trolling at all speeds.
Luhr-Jensen is building on that tradition with the introduction of six new UV Bright color patterns in durable, corrosion-resistant finishes: Blue Pink Hot Scale UV (Nickel Back); Blue Hot Scale UV (Nickel Back); Purple Pink Hot Scale UV (Nickel Back); Green Hot Scale UV (Brass Back); Orange Hot Scale UV (Brass Back), and Pink Hot Scale UV (Brass Back).
Luhr-Jensen’s innovative UV Bright finishes reflect more light, increasing visibility to fish. That, paired with Needlefish’s inimitable action, enhances an already impressive family of baits.
Featuring an elongated thin-blade body, the hyperactive Needlefish employs an additional metal flipper tail for a small touch of erratic flash at slow trolling speeds. Exceptionally effective when fished bare, the Needlefish also produces well when tipped with a small piece of worm or shoepeg corn. Rig the Needlefish behind a dodger or troll it on its own behind a weight, on lead core line, or off a downrigger.
