Strategic Angler - Naia 130
Natural springs are some of the clearest and purest water sources on earth. Naia was born based on this premise, a clear lure that best embodies its minimalist purity. She was conceptualized over three years ago while I was searching for a way to encapsulate the best attributes of all my creations. She did not yet have a name; she was but a simple fluid shape that eventually became what she is today.
Naia is the latest creation offered by StrategicAngler for 2020. She transcends the traditional design of a stickbait and a fast sinking jig. I refer to Naia as a “she” because of her fluid lines and seductive appearance. The omission of the belly loop creates a rhythmic side to side cadence as she free falls, while the tail hook configuration can be customized to suit your fishing style. Naia works well with large single hooks or trebles of various sizes. Twitches, “walk the dogs”, sweeps and a sinking flutter all successfully embody her fluid style.
A touch of UV* in the clear body illuminates her in the water, completing her scintillating form.

Walk the dog; side to side cadence
Horizontal sinking flutter during free-fall
Wobbling side to side swimming action with slow retrieve
Erratic action with fast retrieve
Walk – A rhythmic slow twitch will make Naia move with an alternating left and right cadence. A quick sweep creates a sudden commotion that reverberates in the water attracting predators in the process.
Wobble – Retrieving the lure with the rod tip down will create a slow side to side wobble. This slow and erratic movement is reminiscent of a cruising or unwary fish. An occasional twitch will make Naia come alive, flash on one side and then right itself.
Sinking flutter– Cast the lure, or simply let it drop! A free falling lure will have a more pronounced side to side flutter, so give it a few seconds for Naia to reach your preferred depth before retrieving.
Sweep – The Naia series does best with softer sweeps of the rod tip versus the traditional hard sweeps most stickbait 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.

Samson Enticer Minnow
Type - Topwater/Sub/Sinking
The Enticer Minnow is a long casting versatile lure that can be effectively worked on or just below the surface, where it imitates a fleeing baitfish. This lure is best retrieved at medium to fast speed when targeting pelagics. When targeting bass, work the lure at a slow to medium speed using the rod tip to create a more erratic action.
Gently shaking the rod tip will give an enticing injured fish action to the lure allowing you to slow right down hovering over shallow rocky areas where predatory fish may be present.
Suitable for: striper, bass, GTs, bluefish, tuna, roosterfish, jacks, redfish, mackerel, kingfish, tarpon and most other pelagic species.
