The Lucky John VIB – vibrating jigging lure initially profiled for open water fishing but in recent years, and with great success, has become popular for ice fishing as a lure without acoustic effect. The VIB works by appealing to a fish’s lateral line system which they use to detect movement in the surrounding water.
The VIB’s balanced weight system is key to its unique vibration, and with a smooth pull the lure begins to vibrate, imitating prey and attracting predators from long distances. Then, with a steady drop, the lure swims and darts like wounded prey triggering crushing strikes. The Lucky John VIB is available in an array of the most popular finishes to cover a variety of forage options and water conditions.
