Our premium American import – Picasso manufactures various freshwater lures and lure components with a focus on jigs, components, underspins, spinnerbaits, and more
Picasso’s range of jigs provides the keen bass angler with a variety of styles, sizes, and colours to suit every fishing condition. Choose from Fantasy Football, Shock Blade, Shock Blade Special FX, Shock Blade Tungsten Knocker, Swim Jig, Straight Shooter, and Spider Jig ranges.
The Picasso Fantasy Football Jig has an almost completely recessed line tie to assure the jig “rolls” out of any rocky cover without hanging up. The textured head creates traction causing the jig to rock back and forth instead of just “skidding” or “skating” across the bottom, giving superior action.
The Picasso Shock Blade brings you the very best in innovation and technology. The Patented design creates a lot of thumping vibration and hunting action even when reeled at a very slow retrieve. 1.5oz and 2oz come with the option of a large blade that creates a hard thumping vibration with a wider wobble, while the standard blade creates a very tight/quick action and vibration that can be “Burned” or “Ripped”.
The Special FX Shock Blade is hand-tied, using 100% natural bucktail and, depending on colour choice, may be mixed with a combination of premium feathers, including grizzly and duck. We held nothing back when designing this lure and utilize the finest materials that money can buy; no synthetics on this masterpiece. The end result is a unique action never before seen on a bladed jig and that which is sure to attract even the most finicky of fish.
The Tungsten Knocker is constructed around a solid, one-piece, 97% tungsten football head. This creates added sensitivity and generates extreme vibration and “hunting” action that flat out catches fish. Being a much smaller profile than its lead counterpart makes it a great choice for targeting spotted bass, smallmouth bass and largemouth bass.
The Picasso Spider Jig features a completely recessed line tie to prevent the jig from hanging up or rolling in structure. Available in 30-degree extra wide gap hook or original round bend flipping hook. The Picasso Spider Jig has a very vertical fall in the round bend hook version which makes it easy to hit your target.
The Picasso Swim Jig features our popular Smart Mouth head design which provides a subtle “wobble” that fish can not resist. Built around a 5/0 Mustad 3X Strong Ultra Point hook that assures good hook penetration, will not open on the set, and can handle big fish. The Swim Jig is equipped with a double bait keeper, one on the collar and a wire barb on the hook shaft, to keep your plastics secure cast after cast.
The Picasso Straight Shooter Jig with its conical head design and recessed line tie makes it ideal for multiple techniques including swimming, punching grass and working through structures. Its weed guard is perfectly angled to deflect off structure and prevent the jig from rolling which is a common cause for hang-ups. Moulded around a premium 5/0 Siwash 4X Strong hook to handle big fish.
Picasso’s range of premium spinnerbaits is designed to take on the biggest bass. Featuring .032 diameter stainless steel to create a unique elliptical movement of the upper arm on retrieve. This flexible light wire allows the bait to be “collapsed” during rapid strikes to insure proper hook set. Picasso uses a grommet centre skirt to insure the skirt will not pull down and provide the ultimate in action. Currently, we bring in the following ranges: Double Willow, Double Willow with Painted Blades, Willow Indiana, Night Thumper with Single Colorado Blades, and the Tandem Thunder Willow.
Picasso Double Willow Light wire Spinnerbaits use .032 diameter stainless wire to create a unique elliptical movement of the upper arm on retrieve. This flexible light wire allows the bait to be “collapsed” during rapid strikes to insure proper hook set. Picasso uses a grommet centre skirt to insure the skirt will not pull down and provide the ultimate in action.
The Picasso Double Willow Painted Blade version gives fish something they haven’t seen before, producing results in a variety of water colours. Super tough Duraseal painted blades last fish after fish and resist chipping.
Serious thump and vibration are what this spinnerbait is all about. The custom cup blades provide excellent vibration to stay in touch with the bait by loading the rod so that strikes are detected early for proper hook set.
The Picasso Tandem Thunder Willow provides a good balance of flash and vibration that allows the bait to track very true. The rear turtle shell-shaped blade loads the rod just enough to stay in touch with the bait without too much torque. This provides no lateral roll on even the fastest retrieves and also allows the blade to spin on the fall.
The Willow Indiana Spinnerbait provides great flash and vibration in one versatile bait. Picasso Light wire Spinnerbaits use .032 diameter stainless wire to create a unique elliptical movement of the upper arm on retrieve. This flexible light wire allows the bait to be ”collapsed” during rapid strikes to ensure proper hook set. Picasso uses a grommet center skirt to insure the skirt will not pull down and provide the ultimate in action.
Picasso’s range of terminal tackle includes the Suijin and spare bills, Weedless Rhino Neds, Rhino Head, Shakedown Head, Shake-E-Football Head, Single Barrel and Double Barrel Underspins, and Smart Mouth Plus Head.
The Suijin (water god in Japanese) was developed with Elite Series Pro and “scrounger” guru Aaron Martens overseeing every step. The proprietary formulation of the bill material is crucial for this type of lure to achieve its full potential based on water temp and the plastic trailer being used. The head design insures proper cupping of the bill material to optimize the swimming/kicking action of plastic trailers.
Get extra Suijin bills made with our proprietary formula to get as close to the action as you want! Based on water temp and plastic trailer slight bill thickness or softness can make all the difference. If your trailer is “kicking hard” or wide you can drop down in thickness to achieve a better/tighter action. If you don’t have enough action, simply go up in thickness.
The Rhino Neds give a stand-up presentation to your plastics when a finesse technique such as the popular Ned Rig is just the ticket to trigger a bite. Ideal for highly pressured waters or when the bite gets tough and the fish are finicky. Designed with the collaboration of Bassmaster Elite Series Pro Aaron Martens it features a “Rhino horn” that easily slides through the mouth of the fish for a quick hook penetration.
The Picasso Rhino Head was designed with the collaboration of Bassmaster Elite Series Pro Aaron Martens to bring you a “shakey” style head that’s at the top of the class in design and function. Featuring a “Rhino horn” that not only protects your soft plastic from being pulled down but also designed to slide easily through a fish’s mouth for quick hook penetration. The weight-forward design allows the bait to stand and creates a unique action that fish find irresistible.
Picasso Shakedown heads use a flexible nickel-titanium spring (bait keeper) along with a cross-eye Gamakatsu hook to give you the best “shakey style” head on the market. The flexible nickel titanium spring always comes back to position after each fish without breaking. Because of its super soft elasticity, the spring allows the entire hook gap to be maintained during hook set.
Picasso Shake-E-Football combines the Picasso Fantasy Football Jig design with the Flexible Nickel Titanium Spring (bait keeper) to provide the ultimate in shakey jig fishing. Not only is this jig great for the shakey technique, but it is also highly versatile for casting and flipping in any cover or open water. The tough Duraseal coating and textured head rolls over rocks, through grass, and drags through wood with no hang-ups due to the flexible spring.
Utilizing a no torque rubber harness and Sampo® ball bearing swivel, the Picasso Single Barrel Underspin turns at the slowest speeds. No wires or imbedded swivels to interfere with blade turning, hookups, or rolling from torque. Paired with the Picasso Smartmouth Plus jig heads in weights from 1/8 oz to 1oz in a variety of hook sizes. Extra harness included.
The Smart Mouth Plus Fish Head Jigs are designed to be fished in both fresh and saltwater and fulfil the demand for an assortment of hooks in a broad range of sizes from 1/8oz up to 2 oz.
Picasso buzzbaits bring unique sound and commotion into your game and are sure to entice the big bass. Choose from the Buzzzz Saw and Dinn-R-Bell ranges, which come in an assortment of sizes, colours, and blade colours.
Designed with the collaboration of Western Pro’s Matt Newman and Billy Skinner, the Buzzzz Saw is specifically designed to throw a lot of water and cause a commotion that the fish cannot resist from striking. Manufactured to achieve the perfect balance between casting distance, straight tracking, and quick planing. The counter-rotating blades provide for increased lift and assure the bait runs straight.
Dinn-R-Bell Single Blade Buzzbait – If you’re looking for a buzzbait that calls up the big fish – look no further. The Picasso Dinn-R-Bell Buzzbait uses a TUNGSTEN KNOCKER to provide a unique sound the likes of which bass have never heard. Manufactured to achieve the perfect balance, increased casting distance, straight tracking and quick planning, its compact design allows it to be fished over structure such as blowdowns and grass without getting hung up.
