FRESHWATER TACKLE OVERVIEW

GLC FRESHWATER LURES & COMPONENTS


GLC Fishing is a one stop shop for freshwater lure manufacturing. We make every component, except the hook for our jigs, wire baits, spoons, vibe lures, umbrella rigs, bladed jigs, soft plastics, and silicone tube baits in-house. This includes wire forms, 3D eyes, clevises, metal & plastic beads, BB swivels, weed guards, rattles, rattle bands, skirt bands, spinner bait blades and plating, jig blades, blade snaps/clips, spoons, buzz blades, rivets, vibe lure bodies, inline spinner bodies, split rings, S wires, soft plastic keepers, stainless steel leaders, soft plastics, hard plastic lure bodies, and of course silicone skirts and anything you can imagine with silicone. Our components are manufactured to superior standards, using only the highest quality materials. We use only virgin Lead hardened with 6% Antimony and 10% Tin, no recycled Lead. Our Lead lures are all hand polished prior to painting. Our lures are all hand and airbrush primed and painted and clear coated with the highest quality automotive lacquers, no powder coating or dip painting.

GLC SILICONE SKIRTED TUBE:

Silicone Skirted Tube Baits (US Utility Patent #8,381,429):

GLC's first of its kind, patented silicone skirted tube significantly out-performs the classic Platisol tube skirt. The durable silicone tube body and skirt will far out last any soft plastic bait. These baits can take the hits, and the action is far better than the standard soft plastic tube skirting - Silicone skirting breaths and pulsates, PlastiSol does not. And since these baits are all silicone the colorations and printing options are unlimited. Our skirted tubes are available in 2 styles - the standard one piece with rattlin jig insert, and the 2 piece, which includes a silicone tube, rattlin jig, and our patented Easy Hub skirt. Tube jigs available in sizes from 1/8 oz. to 1 oz.

GLC NEW BIO-BAITS (Patent Pending):

Coco Bait

GLC Fishing has developed a new, totally bio-degradable, completely eatable soft bait strip formula. This material is formulated entirely of food product and can be die cut into strips. It is tough and re-usable. It absorbs liquid fish attractant like a sponge and releases quickly to create a burst of attractant in the strike zone. With the guidance of 2 of the most renowned aquaculture experts in the world, we also developed the GLC BT Attractant - an amino acid based fish attractant that will equal or beat any on the market today. This formulation has been proven throughout the world and in any species to create a fish "feeding frenzy". Our Coco Bait in BT solution is an unbeatable bait. If there's a fish down there, it WILL bite.

    

Bio-Bait

GLC Fishing is currently working with a renowned New Zealand chemist in the development of a totally bio-degradable, moldable soft bait that have superior flex and elongation to any such bait currently on the market. The bait has been successfully prototyped and now is awaiting customer investment

    

GLC LURE SKIRTING

Since our beginning in 2002, GLC Fishing has been the innovator in the lure skirting market. We have designed, developed, and introduced many new styles and concepts to the lure skirt market, including variety of easy on/easy off skirt styles, first ever textured skirt strands, first ever laser cut action and creature image skirt strands, first ever life like swirl colorations, first ever one piece silicone skirted tube, and now the first ever UV Glow skirting.

GLC New UV Glow Skirting:

GLC Fishing has developed a new process for compounding multi-color UV pigments into our silicone, and for silk-screening these pigments on to one side of the silicone sheet. Our first ever UV glow skirts provide distinctive glow at water depths where only the suns UV spectrum is transmitted. Our UV Glow skirting give a powerful, bright glow at depths in Blue, Green, Violet, Red, Yellow, and White glow colors.

GLC Exclusive Easy Hub Skirt (US Patent #7,805,880):

GLC designed and introduced the patented Easy Hub skirt several years ago. Since then, it has been branded and carried by some of the biggest names in the business. These easy on/easy off skirts are truly a major innovation in the fishing industry.

    

Easy Hub Skirt w/ Action Trailers (US Patent #7,805,880):

GLC proudly introduces the first ever, patented Game Fish Prey Image and Appendage Easy Hub Skirt. For years, anglers have been adding relatively stiff, soft plastic or Plastisol fish prey images as trailers to their skirted lures. GLC has now invented a lure skirt that incorporates these fish prey appendage and image shapes into the skirt. The advantages are clear. No more need to purchase soft plastics that have limited durability. When used on our patented easy on/easy off Easy Hub Skirt it is now easier and less expensive to add and interchange fish prey images to any jig or wire baits. And lastly and most importantly, the silicone appendages and images incorporated into our skirts are extremely breathable and provide a much greater dynamic pulsation and action. The visual images of natural game fish prey combined with their pulsating action invoke aggressive reaction strikes. We now offer these skirt in textured silicone. These heavy textured strand skirts provide fullness and body much like the traditional soft plastic chunk. Only they are more flexible and breathable, and when combined with our swirl (Living Image) coloration, they create an exceptional prey-like appearance.

Textured Silicone:

Our textured silicone is produced in 3 varieties, a light texture for smaller freshwater skirting to create additional action and pulsation, a medium texture for freshwater jigs skirts to provide and fuller body and more life-like appearance, and a deep texture for our saltwater Smoker skirts creating sensational pulsation and smoke trail. The light and medium textured skirts hold air bubbles and then release the bubbles slowly while jigging. The deep textured "Smoker" skirts used for offshore trolling provide excellent bubble smoke.



Silicone Skirt Tabs (Pads):

For the DIYers, GLC Fishing is the premier supplier of skirt tab material. We make thousands of base colors and hundreds of prints. With over 700 standard color and prints, and another ~5,000 custom colors/prints, we have the largest variety available worldwide.

The wire bundle is crimped in a brass sleeve, spot welded, and covered with shrink wrap to assure the wires stay locked. One of our patented Easy Hub skirts can be installed over the wire bundle for added attraction. Or, one of our first of its kind all silicone tube skirts can be used.
