The MADMACS 160mm- 6” is a sinking super high speed trolling minnow capable of being trolled at speeds of up to 20kn when rigged correctly. Visit the Nomad Design Youtube Channel for details on rigging to achieve maximum speed. The Madmacs can also be trolled as slow as 5kn and has an amazing vibrating action even at very low speeds due to the Autotune system. The Madmacs Features the pat. Pending Autotune system which allows the Madmac to always troll straight and to run perfectly and with an amazing action at a huge range of speeds. The ability to troll at all speeds makes this a must have lure in every spread. The Madmacs will run at a depth of around 8-15ft when trolled at slower speeds and around 3-4ft depth when trolled super fast.
Featuring a machine-stamped stainless steel plate & full body foam core construction, it is one of the toughest lures available, and is up to any challenge. Fitted with super strong BKK hooks and Heavy Duty split rings the Madmacs is ready for battle.
Designed and tested in Australia by the Nomad Design Team, drawing on decades of charter experience from the Nomad Sportfishing charter operation, each lure has been designed for a specific purpose, and has been balanced and tested to work perfectly with the chosen hooks.
HI SEAS SHARK RATTLE (EA)

Strategic Angler - Proteus 130
The Proteus series is the latest offering by StrategicAngler® for 2021. The remarkable success of the clear bodied, UV enhanced Naia series led to the final development of the Proteus series to date, conceptualized many years before.
Strategic Angler released the Naia series in late 2019 for 2020. The development of the Naia series in 2019 provided a key design element for PROTEUS. After changing and morphing the Mikros concept-design several times over, Strategic Angler was able to take a key design concept from the Naia series and apply it to several benched prototypes. This newfound knowledge enabled Strategic to create a brand new 5 inch hybrid lure featuring the characteristics of a “slow” stick-bait and a sinking, wobbling jig. (The Proteus series received its final inspiration from the slow swimming Atlantic butterfish, a favorite staple of many pelagic species)
Horizontal sinking wobble during free-fall
Wobbling side to side swimming action with slow retrieve
Walk – Proteus can be made to walk with a right, left, right cadence using slow rhythmic pumps with the rod tip down. The slower the better.
Sinking Wobble – Let the lure rest at free spool after casting. The lure will sink with a wide side to side wobble exposing its flanks as it goes deeper. Majority of the strikes come at free spool so watch your line and get ready to close that bail for the hook-set! Mix up the retrieve to achieve different presentations.
Sweep – The Proteus series does best with slow sweeps of the rod tip versus the traditional hard sweeps most stick-bait anglers are accustomed to. The lure is perfectly balanced without the need of a belly hook so imparting softer sweeps will make the lure dance with ease.

Strategic Angler - Frantic (Fast Sinking)
FRANTIC - FAST SINKING
The FRANTIC series was inspired through the body shapes of Sardines and Ballyhoo. The term “frantic” was appropriately chosen because it mimics the crazed action of a bait fish when chased by a predator.
The life-like SUBSURFACE swimming action entices predators to strike time and time again. The perfect all-around lure for amateurs and professional anglers alike. Its swimming action can be modified with simple variations for the ultimate presentation.
The Frantic Series Lures can be fished in many versatile ways.
Swimming– A medium retrieve will create a natural swimming action. It is important to keep the rod tip down to maximize the subsurface swim. No extra angler input needed. That’s it!
A fast retrieve will make this lure vibrate frantically sub surface. The best action is achieved just before the lure starts to roll due to imbalance, so it is advisable to swim the lures prior to use. The faster you retrieve, the faster it vibrates in a frantic state. Pause in between fast cranks, you never know what just might hit it. Great technique for covering more ground or for fast ambush predators such as barracuda, king mackerel and bluefish.
Dive and Roll – Cast the lure. Give it a few seconds so that it orients itself in the water. With the rod tip down, pull the rod with one smooth sweep to the right (or left). Pause for a few seconds. Slowly point the rod to the direction of the lure while retrieving the line with a few cranks of the reel. Repeat. This action will entice a wary fish to strike because it mimics a stunned or dying fish. The sweeping motion will cause the lure to dive down and roll. The pause allows the lure to right itself with a horizontal buoyancy. This is its deadliest move.
Twitch and pause– Retrieving the lure with small rod twitches with an occasional pause will make it flutter like an injured or disoriented bait fish. The slight twitches of the rod during the retrieve gives the fish an erratic swimming action while the pause allows the lure to rest; a perfect opportunity to hook that trophy fish!

Black Hole Cape Cod Special “Giant” 7’3” Spiral Wrap Rod
Black Hole USA Giant blank/rod is the result of extensive testing of fighting giants in 600 lb - 1000 lb in Prince Edwards Island for three years.
Though the blank/rod is developed for stand-up rod for giant, it is also excellent choice for big yellowfin in 200 - 300+lb or trolling for marlin for any size.
The soft tip can absorb the sudden pressure of big fish, and eases fishermen to fight while the mid section of the blank/rod shows enormous power and strength using Nano Carbon.
Iland Hood minimizes ballyhoo washout at all trolling speeds. Allows fisherman to swim Ballyhoo 4-8” below the surface at speeds up to 12 knots. 3D eyes, sonic vibrations, and a flash of silver makes this rig deadly on offshore Pelagius.
Works best with medium and small baits. Quickly attach a pin rigged ballyhoo or simply use a toothpick.
