Named after the Fighter Jet F/A -18 Hornet, this bait was designed by Freedom Baitz Pro Staff Team Member Cody Shaw who was looking for a customizable, versatile straight-tailed plastic. This plastic has a strong, two-part body like our Apache bait with the addition of a long, straight tail that has additional appendages off the end.  Use the whole plastic on an active, aggressive bite or remove the top ball and arms and even the legs off the tail to streamline the bait on a finicky, finesse bite without having to dig a different plastic out of your tackle box.

Original price was: $2.99.Current price is: $2.24.

The 1″ Hornet works best on jigs smaller than 5mm and is great for targeting any species of panfish

It awesome to have rods made for specific styles of fishing, bite aggressiveness, and size of fish you are targeting. The quality and craftsmanship is exceptional and a great warranty if you happen to need it."

"Hands down the best rod for casting light jigs in the spring. The length on this rod allows for casting light jigs a mile without effort. Weather its casting a small jig and minnow or a smaller hair jig this rod is the perfect rod for the task. This is my go-to rod all spring. I pair it with a size 2000 spinning reel and 6-pound mono or braid and a short fluorocarbon leader. The sensitivity of this combo and its ultra lightweight makes it very easy to fish with all day. I have yet to hook a fish with this rod that left me thinking I was underpowered. This is by far my favorite open water rod offered by JT. "
Loving my JT Panhandler ice rod!! The sensitivity is amazing and paired with a Okuma C10 reel it is a joy to fish with!!
