What is the Freedom Tackle Herring Cutbait and where can I buy it?
The Herring Cutbait is a hard-bodied trolling lure with a tantalizing roll when used in many different trolling applications. It has the perfect action when trolled behind a flasher, a paddle or on its own. The Herring can be run behind a dipsy or down-rigger to cover the complete water column from top to bottom. Though-wire construction means this lure can stand up to the abuse of hard running silver rockets. All lures are UV coated with some featuring glow paint to cover all the conditions you might face.
Rigging is included with the supplied 50# mono leader and multiple bearing swivel.
