Styled on the typical deep bellied baitfish that are so prevalent all over the globe. The Madscad has been designed to be effective in all environments, in a range of sizes for a huge variety of species. This design has been refined over years of testing and many prototypes to get the perfectly balanced lure. The key design features like the flattened top of the head, to the scalloped sides and small tail wings all combine to make the action on this lure truly dynamic.
The Madscad sinks level, and has a wiggling action when sinking to allow the sides to give off flash and look more like a wounded baitfish. It has an erratic swimming action when twitched, producing a pronounced thumping side to side darting action. You can employ a faster straight retrieve as well, but either the faster retrieve or the slow twitch will entice strikes. Our recommended retrieve when casting is a couple of quick twitches and then a 2-3 second pause to let the lure slowly sink and wiggle and then twitch it again.
The Madscad shows its diverse ability with the 150 and 190 sizes able to be trolled, and the 190 Deep trolling at over 12kn – making it a super enticing wahoo, mahi mahi or tuna lure. The 190mm option comes in the standard 140g sinking or the fast sinking 160g option, which is better for fast trolling. the 150 and 190 sizes are fitted with super tough BKK inline single hooks and the lures feature the Matrix Metal Plate system in the body for ultimate durability. Whether it is GTs, Kingfish, tuna or mackerel when casting, or trolling for wahoo, tuna, marlin or sailfish, the Madscad can do it all. The all-round trolling and casting ability makes it a must have for any serious bluewater fishing trip.
The Madscad 115 is the ultimate all round casting stickbait, and has accounted for more species than any other lure on Nomad Sportfishing charters. Fitted with inline singles and the Gorilla Through Wire system, it is ready to fish out of the box. The Madscad 95mm features 4X BKK trebles, and while we suggest changing these to singles for heavier reef applications, this stickbait is perfect when fished for tuna, mackerel and queenfish with the standard trebles.
