Brett Hite uses Phenix Vibrator Jig from Fisherman's Choice

FLW Winner, Brett Hite, used Phenix Vibrator Jig from Fisherman's Choice

Phenix Vibrator jig and Brett Hite (together) won the recent 2008 FLW Tour event at Lake Toho and then went on to win the California Delta event—back-to-back–and he is THRILLED!  To its credit, that Phenix Vibrator jig at the end of his line became worth about a quarter of a million dollars to Brett.  Those two tournaments represented quite a comeback to the top for Phoenix, Arizona resident Brett Hite, but he’s not the only one catch a lot of fish with the Phenix Vibrator jig.  It’s time to take a look at just what is different about it and what you have to do to own one (or a few).

Phenix Vibrator jig is a winner in twenty-one colors and five weights including a new color, violet addiction, designed by Arizona fishing pros and only available at Fisherman’s Choice

The Phenix Vibrator jig is in a general class called chatter bait, but there is nothing general class about it.  The Phenix Vibrator Jig comes in ¼ ounce, 3/8 ounce, ½ ounce,  5/8 ounce and ¾ ounce weights.  Each weight also comes in twenty -one different color schemes.  Brett’s favorites were those that looked more like a shiner or a blue gill as it streamed by.

Brett Hite stated, in a recent interview quoted from FLW-Outdoors,

“The rod and line combination in partnership with the characteristics of the Phenix Vibrator jig have helped him land more fish than most other vibrating jig anglers report.  ‘The Phenix Vibrator jig has a medium wire hook on it, which is different than other baits that have a heavy wire jig hook,’ Hite reported. ‘I think it helps to hold the fish better because it doesn’t rip as big a hole in their mouths as they fight.’”

A winning combination you can have

So, a superior hook with medium wire, Sunline fluorocarbon instead of braided line for less stretch, and a glass rod is what Brett says worked out to be the winning combination at setting the hook on the weighty ones—especially in the shallow grass where the bass get all over it.

Brett also reiterated that he has no ties to the Phenix Bait Company and simply buys his Phenix Vibrator jigs “off the shelf” in Phoenix, Arizona—at Fisherman’s Choice Pro Shop.  Fisherman’s Choice also has all of their merchandise available at their online store, as well as www.fishermanschoiceproshop.com.

As we said, the Phenix Vibrator jig is not just simply another chatter bait.  One of the best benefits of the Phenix Vibrator jig would have to be the painted blades.  The painted blades have the advantage that their silver or gold counterparts on the competition can deter strikes instead of drawing them in.  As also mentioned, the hook is a medium wire with a super sharp Mustad ultra point hook and also a high quality skirt made of silicone.  Standard issue with the Phenix Vibrator jig is a worm for a trailer.  The added plastic worm also adds some weight to it and helps entice strikes from better quality fish.

Easy to use and easy to get used to

It is not difficult to get comfortable throwing the Phenix Vibrator jig.  It has a good weight and feel to it.  The construction of the Phenix vibrator jig is better for setting the hook and the hook itself, because it is so sharp, sets well without tearing up the fish.  Where it really shines though, according to those who have been using it in tournaments, is in the grass and the closer the grass is to the surface, the better the fishing.

This is the time of year to get out the jig and get busy.  The streams in the mountains are beginning to warm up and between now—the first of March—and the end of April, you can take a lot of fish, with a Phenix Vibrator jig, coming down those streams and shallow ponds or lakes.
