Granger, WA – When Poe’s Timber Turbine was introduced at ICAST last year, Great Lakes reps and retailers immediately saw the promise a scaled-down version would have for musky and northern pike. Originally developed for peacock bass anglers in South America, the request was to take this 7-1/2” topwater bait down to 6-1/2 inches and feature a selection of colors targeted to musky and pike. The result, a new length and color offering ideally suited to these species.
The Timber Turbine is designed to hold up to the serious abuse these fish can dish-out. It’s “heavy duty” in every sense. 4X strong, black nickel treble hooks; adjustable, high turbulence stainless steel propeller; heavy duty stainless steel hardware throughout; cedar body; and extra tough finish add-up to make the Timber Turbine seriously effective AND durable big game topwater bait.
Buzz Ramsey, Yakima Bait Company Brand Manager commented, “Poe’s Timber Turbine was purposely developed with a slim body design to reduce the fatigue associated with casting and working bigger, bulky topwater baits. Even though it’s ‘slim’, the body profile is ideal for pike and musky. The propeller, which can be easily adjusted, really kicks up the water and calls predatory species from long distances. We spent quite a bit of time in test and evaluation and are extremely pleased with the finished product which meets the market perfectly.”
The Pike/Musky model Timber Turbine is 6-1/2” long, weighs 1 ounce and is rigged with two 1/0, 4X strong black nickel treble hooks.
