To say Shimano dominated the new product showcase would be an understatement, but shimano Waxwing is the next generation of Sub-Surface swimming jigs for saltwater fisherman.
Shimano Waxwing Jigs look radically different than anything on the market today.
These patent pending subsurface jigs swim with a kick that absolutely drives fish nuts.
Though the kick is reminiscent of our beloved iron jigs, the look is a radical departure.
Shimano Waxwing Jigs derive the seductive zigzag motion from the upper wing, while the lower wing acts as a rudder to prevent rolling.
Waxwing lures are designed for targeting saltwater species found in the upper water column.
Available in several sizes and colors with ultraviolet reactive paint on the lateral line to further enhance their fish catching abilities.
These jig-like lures are not designed to fish vertically but rather in a zig-zag pattern back to the boat.
These lures are very durable and feature a paint finish that holds up quite well to fish bites, rocks, etc.
The Waxwing Jigs feature incredibly sharp double tinned Owner hooks.
One of the amazing attributes to this lure is the fact that kelp and structure tangles are far and few between due to the fact that the hooks are upward facing versus a traditional iron jig that features a treble hook or single siwash hook.
In our field testing, not one lure was lost in kelp or seaweed.

This jig swims side-to-side in a zigzag motion with an irregular kicking action which triggers the fish to strike
