Going on 66 years in the industry, Panther Martin a household name in spinnerbaits is bringing out a slew of new fish-catching lures for the 2024 fishing season. One of the new lures they are to produce this year and into the next is the new SonicThumper spinnerbait. This new series will have bass anglers clamoring to have this new lure in their tackle boxes. This spinnerbait touts two of the Panther Martin signature convex/concave blades. These blades give off Panther Martin’s signature thumping vibration along with an incredible amount of flash. One of the blades is smaller while the other is a large blade further back on the wire. Both of the blades whiz through the water and send off the thumping. These vibrations are also complimented by the bubbling effect that is created by the small hole in the base of the larger of the two blades. This not only adds to the sonic action of the two swirling blades but also creates the illusion that there is a struggling bait fish in the water, a perfect imitation to draw in those big predators.
The SonicThumper comes with a vibrantly colored and hand-tied silicone skirt that flows behind the lure in the water. This is attached behind a traditional minnow head pattern on the wire shaft of the spinnerbait. These skirts are tied to mimic injured prey and can be slowly retrieved to stay in the strike zone of a fish for even longer. The fluttering and flashing action they add mimics the fins and tails of small fish. The vibrant skirt colors along with the polished brass or nickel-plated blades are striking in the water and draw in the fish from a long way off in the water column. These attributes along with the sonic vibrations sent out by the SonicThumper double blades will fire the fish up.
Available in 2 sizes (6 & 9) and 4 delectable colors (Blue Black, Fire Tiger, White Chartreuse and White). SonicThumpers™ can be seen at ICAST 2023. Visit Panther Martin® in booth 2802 to see them all!
