Nuclear Ant


Product Description

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.


Ice Fishing

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!

Open Water

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!

  1. Color red 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jun 13th 2019

    Haven't been able to try other colors as red seems to be the hot color with red and or black legs. Tipped with spike. All panfish have taken.

  2. Sir Things Up 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 15th 2019

    I have never seen a product that gets fish active again like the Nuclear Ant. The panfish were literally flying to the top to be the first to take this bait away. I thught my morning had all but stopped until I switched these guys on. Wow it never gets old pulling those big gills through the ice.

  3. Outstanding jig for pan fish! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 12th 2019

    This jig is an outstanding jig for pan fish!!! I would have given it 5 stars other than the hook is kind of on the thin side. After about 25 fish the hook started to bend.

  4. Perfect for the way I fish 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Feb 2nd 2018

    I snap these ice jigs on a fly-fishing hook snap and add a wax worm or Berkley Gulp Alive waxie to catch big bluegill & redear. Good color & paint job. I am an outdoor writer & will let my readers know about these fine baits.

  5. AMAZING! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 27th 2018

    I have fished the same lake for 17 years and I’ve never had great luck at tying in to the bluegills until I found custom jigs and spinners online and ordered the nuclear ant, it was absolutely deadly! I ordered all different colors and legs and so far the only one I’ve used is the black ant with the white legs and it is so successful I have not even tried one of the other ants yet! Fantastic customer service too!!!

  6. Panfish love it 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 26th 2018

    Works very good for panfish (crappies,bluegills and perch) Works well by itself or tipped with waxworm and gets the finicky ones to bite when other jigs don’t work.

  7. Panfish killer 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 23rd 2018

    No other jig I have ever used gets the consistent bites and hookups on farm ponds and small lakes as the Nuclear Ant. Just find the color and you'll be in business!

  8. Great Jig 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 4th 2018

    I always do well with the nuclear ant. Green and white always seem to catch fish in Northern Indiana. Even when the fishing seems slow I can still catch fish.

  9. Bluegills can't resist 5 Star Review

    Posted by on May 4th 2017

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

  10. Looking forward to more usage 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Apr 20th 2016

    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.
