Northland’s Tungsten Gill-Getter Takes No Prisoners

BEMIDJI, Minn. – Northland Fishing Tackle’s NEW Tungsten Gill-Getter Jig just may be the next heavyweight champion when it’s time to go toe to toe in tough conditions with your favorite ice-fishing targets. A denser version of Northland’s ever popular Gill-Getter design, the new challenger effortlessly punches through slush and delivers a knockout blow to big bluegill, pumpkinseed, jumbo perch, walleye, trout, and other hardwater contenders on the prowl below.

With a sleek, compact Flat-Belly™ body that slides effortlessly through the water, the Tungsten Gill-Getter is impossible to resist. Exceptionally detailed for a Tungsten jig, it comes in both glow and natural body colors with lifelike bulging eyeballs, nostrils, and a mandible-style mouth, plus a 60-degree, premium, needle-sharp point perfectly positioned for quick, unencumbered hook sets. With nothing more than a slight twitch of the rod tip, the Tungsten Gill-Getter darts, jukes, and glides like terrified prey. Tipped with a Northland Impulse® plastic trailer, live crappie minnow, minnow head, or string of wax worms, it’s irresistible to even the largest and most cunning sluggers beneath the ice.

“The Tungsten Gill-Getter’s unique body shape really helps it scoot and tumble with an enticing jigging action fish can’t resist,” says Northland pro-staffer and veteran multi-species fishing guide, Brian “Bro” Brosdahl. “When you add bait to the hook at the back of the Gill-Getter, it acts like the tail of a kite helping the lure fly smoothly through the water. It’s highly visible on your sonar, has an amphibious insect/tadpole/young-of-the-year baitfish look and, with that 60-degree forward-tilt hook angle, attaches easily to the end of your line with a loop knot for maximum action and positive hook sets. Add in a super-sharp point that won’t explode your wax worms and you have the perfect hard water combination whether fishing competitively or simply trying to earn enough fillets for a tasty fish fry.”

Available in stores, or online at, the New Tungsten Gill-Getter is a super detailed winter bait that’s sure to answer the bell round after round under a variety of winter conditions ranging from ultra-clear to dark water and high-pressure ice-fishing situations. It comes in sizes 1/28-oz. (#12 hook) and 1/16-oz. (#10 hook), and eight proven fish-catching colors including Glo Red, Glo Chartreuse, Gold, Glo White, Fruit Fly, Tiger Beetle, Woodtick and Ladybug.

ABOUT Northland® Fishing Tackle

Word spread like wildfire, the phone started ringing… and the Northland Fishing Tackle® brand was in hot demand! For 40 years now, John and the Northland® team have been designing, testing and perfecting an exclusive line of products that catch fish like no other brand on the market today.
