Designed for casting or trolling deep-water ledges and open water, the Jointed Li’l Ernie has been proven in both freshwater and saltwater applications. The Jointed Li’l Ernie dives 6 to 12 feet on the cast and up to 18 feet while trolling. The integrally molded dive lip is designed to hold up to continuous contact with rocky bottoms and the durable plastic ribbed construction holds up to the largest predatory fish. The high frequency tight wiggle mimics an escaping baitfish and allows it to be trolled at high speeds. Surprisingly easy to crank on deep retrievals. Huge figure eights with minimal rod movement trigger strikes at the boat even in high-pressure environments. The Jointed Li’l Ernie should be standard issue in every angler’s arsenal. 6" 1-2/3oz
When trolled on 80# Power Pro the Li'l Ernie will dive 10' deep with 38' of line out, 18' deep with 128' of line out.
