New Kid in Town

The Bad Ass Teaser (BAT) con­sists of five 13-inch black mud­flaps cut to re­sem­ble bonito and tuna, with an Ilan­der Ex­press at the end. The tuna sil­hou­ettes cre­ate a slap­ping dis- tur­bance, trailed by a smok­ing lure. “They’re set 20 to 30 feet back in clean wa­ter,” says Harry Ver­non III of Cap­tain Harry’s Fish­ing Sup­ply in Mi­ami. “Mar­lin eat tuna and bonito, and this teaser does an in­cred­i­ble job at de­pict­ing them at the sur­face. One trick in fish­ing these teasers is to add a hook­less horse bal­ly­hoo or mul­let to the Ilan­der Ex­press in the back.”
