Bay de Noc Lure Co., Swedish Pimples
The Swedish Pimple is a superb jigging lure. This type of lure has been widely used in Sweden for over 100 years with exceptional results on both fresh and salt-water fish. Jig it, summer or winter!
Their proven ability to take walleye, trout, Coho salmon, northern, bass, pan fish and many salt water species makes owning this lure a must for most fishermen. As a general rule the larger sizes are for game fish in deep water lakes.
The smaller sizes are for pan fish in shallow lakes; or trout, bass, etc. in rivers. All sizes will produce game fish and pan fish if both types inhabit the same waters. Ultra-lite and light action rods, with balanced reels spooled with 2 or 4 lb. Test line teamed with a Swedish Pimple, Vingla or Flute Spoon has brought many large pan fish to the dinner table.
Our smallest size Swedish Pimples, Vinglas and Flute Spoons with treble hooks that are tipped with a small minnow, wiggler or grub do well.
Often a perch eye on a single hook is a real producer of perch, crappie and stray walleye or white bass. The eye has a strong odor and is so tough; several hard bites will not remove it. If you miss a bite, you can often tease the fish into coming back for more because the bait is still on. When fishing for crappies, retrieve the Swedish Pimple, Vingla or Flute Spoon slowly by sunken timer brush or weeds. A #2WP Swedish Pimple with a single hook tipped with a white plastic grub is extremely effective for vertical jigging crappies by sunken docks or timbers or try a #2PS retrieved slowly for perch.
Use a #2, 3, 4 or 5 Swedish Pimple, Flute Spoon or Vingla for best results on pan fish and game fish in shallower waters. Used with a lift, fall and pause retrieve, they are good spinning spoons for all game and pan fish. To use as a spinning lure with a straight I or interrupted retrieve, reverse the location of the red flipper for more kick to the lure (i.e. remove the flipper and reinstall it on the flat side of the Pimple). A bonus Single Baiter Hook and Flipper is supplied with sizes 2,3 and 4.
The largest sizes are fast becoming favorite salt-water lures. Use a sharp lift and settle routine in your retrieve for the most erratic action to simulate the injured baitfish action most prize fish can't resist.
Larger size treble hooks can be installed to suit most needs without harming the action and attraction at the strike zone.
