The Nuclear Ant is unlike any ant ever seen before! It offers a vertical presentation with the addition of a Finesse Plastic four-legged ant collar. The leg collars are interchangeable and replaceable for countless mix and match presentations to match any fishing scenario.
Ants have always been proven panfish producers … and now the Nuclear Ant steps up to provide the greatest ant of all time! The Finesse Plastic legs attract and the gold hook has a long shank that allows easy hooking of big, juicy waxies or several maggots without compromising the action. The Nuclear Ant is a great shallow water choice when fish are aggressive or when a more subtle action is needed to trigger finicky fish. Available in two of the most popular panfish sizes, 10 and 8, we know guys who never go home empty-handed because they carry a full selection of every color in every size!
Shallow water ’gills, crappies and perch can’t resist the Nuclear Ant when fished around piers, docks and fallen timber. Fish sit in these high-opportunity areas waiting for ants and spiders to take the plunge. Use a tiny float, casting bubble or fly rod to put the Nuclear Ant right in the strike zone. And they’re not just for panfish. Trout engulf Nuclear Ants with reckless abandon, so keep a supply in your trout box, too!
Bluegills can't resist

We use Nuclear Ants all year around add a waxworm to it makes it twice as deadly
Looking forward to more usage

The jig looks great, but I did not get the takers I was hoping to get. I did land one 9" bluegill, but was hoping for more takers. Adding a wax worm may help my catch rate.

I (and my friends) use your nuclear ants year round. Tip them with a waxie or a Berkley gulp minnow, and standby for lots of fish (gills, perch and crappies) and lots of fun. Great product.

Ice melted before I could use this season so planning on trying in open water come spring. I hope they hammer gills under a bobber.
Great Late Season

I use these when other baits just wont trigger a bite in late season we tip them with a white spike. They always seem to be a game changer!
good but could improve

The panfish love these. I just wish the legs stayed on better/longer than they do.
Best jig I've used

I found these at the ace hardware where I live. I caught a lot a perch and a few rainbow trout during one trip. My one nuclear ant lasted almost all day. The plastic finally wore out. Ace quit carrying them and the lady over ordering didn't seem interested in finding more. I luckily found you guys online. I got stocked up for the winter. I will never be without a nuclear ant in my tackle box. Thank you for a great product!

This is the best jig I've ever used to entice the bluegills to strike hard. They don't just peck at it, they inhale the Nuclear Ant tipped with a waxworm. The rubber legs draw the gills in, and the gills can't resist. A MUST for a fun day of fishing!!!
