Heddon Sonar Blade Baits


The Heddon Sonar is the original action-adjustable lure. The three line-tie holes allow adjustment of the lure's running depth and action. The front hole is for shallow running and high vibration. The rear hole produces deep running and a wide, slower, wobbling action. The center hole is perfect for jigging, a technique especially effective for ice fishing.

We stock the Sonar Series in two sizes, the 1/4 oz. (1 7/8") size and the 1/2 oz. (2 3/8") size. Both sizes offer extra-strong, extra-sharp hooks, bright, fish attracting colors and durable finishes.

 You Never Know What They Will Catch!
Pros: They work!, They cast a mile
Cons: hooks sometimes foul
Best Uses: Any game fish
Comments: Really attracts fish with super vibration. Old standby lure, my father used them when I was just a kid, 50 years ago.
 great fishing lure
Pros: versatility, catch all kinds of sport fish, especially walleye!
Cons: the hooks
Comments: You hear all the time about the new rage in fishing lures. It's all lure company's hype trying to get you buy their latest and greatest. In the meantime no one who has recently started fishing hears about the old fishing lures. Just because you don't hear about an old lure on all these fishing shows doesn't mean it doesn't catch a lot of fish. The good old fashioned blade bait is one of them. I've been using the Heddon blade bait 1/4 ounce for two years now. Blade baits catch almost everything in the water. I use them to catch walleye and they work great! These blade baits vibrate really easily. The vibration of this lure is key to catching fish with it. Just a simple lift on the rod and you can feel the vibration. I fish them horizontally and vertically. Just make sure you don't have a lot of slack in the line while letting the lure fall. When it's falling is when the fish usually hit. The one thing that I do change on them is the hook. I think the hooks they come with are too big.I put on a split ring with a size 10 hook on the 1/4 ounce. The only reason I don't give them a 5 is because of the hook issue. Buy some of these, learn how to fish them correctly and you won't be sorry.

 An old one, but a good one
Pros: Just a great all-round lure
Best Uses: Spinning, jigging.. or just use your imagination
Comments: This must be one of the all-time great lures, and a prolific fish catcher. The adjustability of this lure allows for numerous fishing scenareos, form casting to jigging, fishing deep or shallow, fast or slow retrieve and a tight or wide action. I particularly like the rear most line-tie point as it allows a slow retrieve but a wide "fluttering" action. Most of the time I use the heavier version as the extra weight assists casting and allows a deeper retrieve, having said that the lighter version has it's place as well. The near verticle stance the lure takes on as it runs through the water, places the the two trebles squarely in the face of a pursueing fish, giving very positive hook-up rates. I have been using these lures for over 50 years, and recently purchased another 15 from FishUSA.
