This is the original Malosi floating stickbait design, featuring the signature cut mouth and minimal weighting. It is extremely easy to use with an in-built action and can be retrieved in many different ways. 

Chieftains lures have proven effective for catching a wide range of fish, from XXL Giant Trevally and Kingfish to Tuna, Mackerel, Trout, and many others in between. Thanks to its versatility, strength, and ability to perform in any conditions, it can catch practically anything. This is why it has become the most popular model in our range.

Swim Action

The Chieftain is different to most traditional floating sticks in that it sits horizontal on the surface at rest and has a natural swim action built in. Requiring next to no effort, this stickbait can be fished all day with ease; sweep, pop or straight retrieve, the Chieftain will dig in just under the surface and swim seductively, even in chop or at heights where most traditional floating stickbaits cannot be used effectively.

All Master Series blanks are constructed using an innovative two-part process, setting Malosi lures apart with their unique design. Initially, a solid paulownia core is created, incorporating hidden internal weights and 2mm stainless steel 316L wire for enhanced durability. This core is then inserted into a silicone mold, where it is encapsulated in a 2mm thick wall of ABS-like resin.

The resulting blank is not only incredibly durable but also hard enough to allow the lure to slide back into a fish's mouth, effectively eliminating the issue of tooth penetration and failed hook sets. Furthermore, the blank's strength is augmented by finishing the lure with multiple layers of tough polyurethane, ensuring protection against even the most toothy fish.

Rigging Options

Chieftains swim best when rigged with a treble on the belly and single on the back, this combination frees up the action of lure and allows for a wider more aggressive S swim. In general double singles will lighten the lure, giving it a wider more slashing action that is slightly more unstable, where-as adding double trebles will dampen the base action a little due to the weight but has the obvious advantage of more hook points to secure the fish.
