Give all your bass jigs, spinnerbaits and buzzbaits a
fresh, exciting new look with these lure skirts!
EZ Skirts. These same skirts are used on several name
brand lures. The EZ Skirt manufacturer only offers a limited
number of factory-defined color patterns. So you'll see many of
these same EZ Skirt colors repeated on various lure brands.
The skirts are named 'EZ' because they are so easy to get on
and off a jig, spinnerbait or buzzbait . The skirts stay firmly
in place. Striking fish really can't pull the skirts down easily
(if at all) and the skirt strands are looked permanently and
perfectly in position. So the appearance can't get wrecked.
Strands layered in baitfish patterns can never get jumbled up or
out of kilter.
Each EZ Skirt style has 70 silicone strands (each 2-1/2"
long) that all billow backward. It has a light, airy, "full
yet sparse" look. The strands are locked permanently in
place by a small rubber center hub that creates a perfect
"umbrella" profile. Because the strands are locked in
place, the different colors (fixed in five strand increments) do
not move out of place or get mixed into each other. So if a skirt
has different back, side and belly colors, the colors are
permanently locked in position.
These have very good action and lots of wiggle in the water.
The skirt looks square cut in the back, but when they're moving
in the water, the ends of the skirt tips pull together nicely
into a point like the tapered tip of an artist's paintbrush.
Because the "bloom" or bend where the strands come off
the hub puffs out so much, it constantly flexes backward, making
the strands wriggle actively. It's a very lively action skirt.
There's a good amount of shimmy, squiggle and breathing pulse the
skirt displays on the retrieve.
When paused, such as when a jig rests on bottom, the strands
spring open like unfurling a picnic blanket, presenting the jig
trailer in the middle.
Which is Better? People often ask which skirt style do I like
better - the standard skirt or the EZ skirt? I like them both. I
like the standard skirt for a bulkier flipping jig for example. I
like the EZ Skirt for its sparse billowy appearance. It is ideal
for clear water. There is a lot more see-through effect on the EZ
Skirt which breaks it up more and blends more naturally into the
A few of my favorite EZ Skirt applications are:
- The EZ Skirt goes nicely on a hidden head spinnerbait since
fish get a great glimpse of the baitfish-shaped spinnerbait body
hidden beneath the billowy skirt. This skirt lets fish more
clearly view the attractive fish-shaped hidden weight belly.
- On a swimming jig or finesse jig in clear water with a soft
plastic trailer, the sparseness of the EZ Skirt style really
shows off the soft trailer body underneath, letting fish get a
good peek-a-boo glimpse of the full trailer shape beneath the
- I like buzzbaits dressed with an EZ Skirt. They present
beautifully on buzzbaits and have an incredible wriggling action,
plus the fact that bass can't easily pull them down. A buzzbait
needs to be cast a little different than and more forceful than a
spinnerbait or jig. standard skirts can pull off the lead collar
even just from casting a buzzbait with the standard skirt band. A
standard style skirt, once you catch a couple fish on it, just
does not stay in place on a hard cast or when a fish grabs at a
buzzbait but misses, a standard skirt often gets pulled down the
hook. On the other hand, the EZ Skirts stay in place.
Chatreuse Sexy Shad ~ EZ Skirt. New
killer color for 2010. Has the same steel blue back,
snow white belly and yellow lateral line as on the original EZ
Sexy Shad skirt. Like the original EZ Sexy Shad color, every
strand of every color has a coppery micro-crystal in it.
What's new and different on this skirt is a swatch of smoky
barred chartreuse above and bright chartreuse below the yellow
lateral line. Certain to be a great shad-imitating color in
stained water or low visibility conditions. It's just another
fantastic, sexy skirt color.

Sexy Herring ~ EZ Skirt. New
killer color for 2010. Has the signature yellow
lateral lines and a similar steel blue back as on the original EZ
Sexy Shad skirt, but the blue back on EZ Sexy Herring is infused
with smoky chartreuse and earthy green tones, making it a
chameleon color that shifts from blue to chartreuse to green
depending on the light angle. The rest of the strands on EZ
Sexy Herring are all pearlescent white, all infused with a pale
pearlescent powder blue hue, and many of the strands are printed
with a reflective pale pearlescent print pattern on them.
Difficult to describe in writing, and tough to even see in the
photos. Certain to be a great herring-imitating color
and yet another fantastic, sexy skirt color!

The long, trailing tail section adds
the finishing touch to the standard EZ Skirt.
The easy on, easy off EZ Skirt usually consists of 70 silicone
skirt strands, each 2-1/2" long, that are permanently bonded
onto a core retainer hub. As a result of this unique hub mounted
strand design, the 70 skirt strands project out from the hub at a
90 degree angle creating a perfect umbrella shape and when these
70 strands are bent back by water pressure, they have a pulsating
action like no other skirt on the market.
In addition, there are now 21 more strands, each 4" long,
that trail our behind the skirt to form a tail. These tail
strands are also permanently bonded onto the core retainer hub.
The trailing tail really heightens the allure of the EZ Skirt.
