The Venator is built with a “tapered” stainless steel wire. It’s made with a thinner and flexible upper arm to trigger more vibrations right on the blades and a thicker lower arm to give more strength when you need to swing the fish right into the boat. The hook is made with a heavy wire and its very high quality compared with other spinnerbaits sold on the market. All those features make the new Venator one of the strongest and sought after lures ever build. Molix also paid serious attention to the head form. It is designed with a special “Flat Head” shape that gives the perfect balance during any retrieve to go with a super attractive side to side action. The oversized 3D eye is proven to attract the fish and give a natural appeal to this lure. The skirt is made with “fine cut” silicon and features a real life like action typical of schooling baitfish. The wide profile blade used on Venator helps to increase vibrations even during low speed and slow rolling retrieves.
Molix has finalized this lure thanks to the suggestions and tests made by Mike “Ike”Iaconelli Eilte U.S. Pro Angler. For the Venator is also available the Ike’s Signature Series Colors, and is Mike himself who explains us these colors in details:
#18 Bogolu Dace: This color was modeled from the small minnow, chub, and dace forage species that bass love to eat! The skirt and head colors enhance the blade flash and vibration and cause the fish to react! This is a really versatile color that really shines in clearer water and stream and river situations!
#19 Pummel Fish: This was based off of the classic black and blue color that is so effective in other type of lures like jigs and vibration jigs. The toned down black blades make this one really special! It is perfect for low light conditions and for fishing at night! It’s also a sleeper when fishing in extremely clear water!
#20 Purple Sinsay: This color was taken from the fact that most bait fish forage species have a white and purple sheen to their coloration. Shad, Alewife, Herring, White Perch, Crappie, White Bass and many other types of forage have these same color attributes. This color is also an amazing color in rivers and tidal water!
#21 Mud Vein: This is really cool color combination that is normally hard to find. It has several applications. First, for extremely muddy or stained water, the front orange blade and copper blade combination allows the bass to find it more easily. Also, it is a perfect match when fishing in tannic based water color where forage species like golden shiners and roach are present. The copper blade makes this one stand out!
#22 Neon Charmer: This loud color spinnerbaits has been one of my favorite colors for many years! It has several applications. First, for extremely aggressive fish and spices like smallmouth or spotted bass, the bright Chartreuse blades act as a aggravator and trigger an impulse strike; especially when retrieved very fast! The skirt color and flat mat finish head, make it a perfect match for many perch and panfish forage species that have a lot of Chartreuse and pale orange coloration. Finally, like Mud Vein, it’s also an amazing dirty water color and helps the bass track down the bait.
#23 Blue Gill: This color was created to match one of the most KEY forage spices that bass eat: panfish, bluegill, sunfish, shell crackers and war mouths. The combination of blues, greens, and yellows in addition to the bar patterned head, make this a perfect match for all water conditions. This is a super versatile color that I love to fish any time I’m fishing around these panfish species!
