The Alabama Leprechaun Story: Why This GOLD Lure Sold Out In 2 Days!
Here’s how it happened…The Alabama Leprechaun Story.
Show me the GOLD!!!
Do you know what would happen if a gold spoon and a shrimp got together and had a baby?
It’s called The Alabama Leprechaun…
And THOUSANDS of packs of these amazing lures flew off the shelf within hours of them going live to the public…
Because it has the underwater action of a fleeing shrimp with the flash and shine of a gold spoon.
Plus, it’s INFUSED with a proprietary scent made with REAL SHRIMP and REAL BAITFISH!
Not only that but the Alabama Leprechaun lure is also LOADED with gold flakes to attract more attention from the slot and over-slot fish who’ve seen it all…
This lure could be the absolute best at catching big redfish, speckled trout, snook, and flounder in 3 feet of water or less.
Here is the Alabama Leprechaun story…
Check out what happened to Salt Strong Insider Travis Anderson on his very first cast with the Alabama Leprechaun (grab your pack here)
It’s crazy how well this lure is fooling even some of the biggest and smartest fish…
We’ve even seen it work in areas that traditionally only work with live bait!
But there is much more to this story than just an irresistible and flashy gold jerk shad…
Let me take you back to our tackle room when we were coming up with a name for this new custom lure…
How The Alabama Leprechaun Lure Got Its Name
It was about this time last year when we first came up with the idea for this jerk shad lure…
Our team was together and we were racking our brains over the perfect name (after the huge success with Slam Shady, we knew we had to bring our A-game again).
We already had the color and design knocked out so were we trying to think of something memorable that was green and gold.
Finally, someone on our team blurted out…
“Hey, wasn’t there a funny viral video a while back where some neighborhood in Alabama thought they found a real leprechaun who had buried a pot of gold under a tree? Maybe we can name the lure Alabama Leprechaun?”
Our team busted out laughing!
Instantly, I knew we had a winner.
If you haven’t seen this real news report about the Alabama Leprechaun in Crichton, Alabama, you’ve got to watch this.
Just wait until you see the amateur sketch! Hahahahhaha!
How funny is that!
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched this laughing out loud.
Who else seen a leprechaun say, Yeah!
Alabama Leprechaun Is The Ultimate Closer!
Any time you design a new lure it goes through multiple iterations.
We knew we wanted a watermelon green jerk shad loaded with gold flakes and a custom scent…
But that still leaves quite a few variables…
- What’s the best size for a jerk shad (turns out its 5 inches)
- What’s the ideal amount of gold flakes?
- How do you create the best blend of real shrimp and baitfish to infuse in the lure?
After months of testing different variations, we finally nailed it.
And what we’ve discovered is that this jerk shad is the ultimate closer!
Slaying everything from large redfish, snook, trout, and even flounder!
Here’s what I mean:
We almost always start out fishing an area with Slam Shady (you can claim your free pack of Slam Shady here if you haven’t already).
Why Slam Shady?
Because Slam Shady has proven to be the ultimate search bait.
For covering ground and finding feeding zones, nothing beats Slam Shady.
But there are instances where you want the following:
- A silent but deadly bait (without a bunch of vibration or noise – especially around spooky fish in calm water)
- A bait that you can skip a mile back under the mangroves or docks in shallow water
- A lure that can fool even the biggest fish in 3 feet of water or less
Well, this Alabama Leprechaun lure does all three!
That’s why it’s become our CLOSER!
The lure we go to when everything is on the line and we need to catch that spooky big fish in shallow water.
Alabama Leprechaun is like the Mariano Rivera of fishing (or Ricky “Wild Thing” Vaughn if you’re more into baseball movies).
Here’s the footage from Luke fishing the final prototype that we ended up taking into production:
