CJ Special Lures
Fish like the pros!
These spoon style aluminum lures have been designed and perfected over the last 15 years and have developed a loyal following with both professional charter fishermen and lodge operators. Each variation of the CJ lures, brass or aluminum, has a specific shape and weight, as well as a bend and twist in the tail to ensure that the lures roll in one direction for 8 to 12 inches, then reverse and roll in the opposite direction. This erratic action mimics baitfish unlike any other lure on the market and has proven extremely effective for all predatory fish tested.

A trolling speed between 2.5 and 3.2mph is recommended when fishing aluminum CJ lures, although speed depends on prevailing conditions. They key is to drop the lure below the surface and adjust the speed until a lateral, darting action occurs along with the body roll.
If using an inline flasher a leader of 6 feet or more is suggested, to ensure the action of the CJ Special is not impeded by the movement of the flasher.
If using the aluminum CJ Special on its own, a dummy flasher setup is a recommended. To set up, attach the flasher from or just above the downrigger cannonball. Then attach the snap for the CJ Special leader about 6 to 8 feet up the main line from the cannonball. The leader should be a minimum of 3 feet longer than the leader length used for the dummy flasher - and a leader length of 20 to 30 feet beyond the flasher is common.
