Nomad Madscad Stickbait Lure

The Madscad is a twichbait that can be used on nearly every species for casting and trolling. It is by far the most versatile lure in the range and just catches fish. Everything eats madscads! With sizes ranging from small 3.5" stickbaits through to the larger 8" big baits for GTs, Tuna, wahoo, kingfish and mackerel, there is a Madscad for every species imaginable.

All models now come rigged with 2 Nomad Inline single hooks and heavy duty split rings.

  • Years of research and development, plus many lifetimes of combined guiding experience from the Nomad Team, has led to the Nomad Design range of GT & Bluewater Casting Lures. The Madscad is a sinking stickbait, available in 2 weights for the 190mm size and also a 115mm size for smaller species including bass, pollock, pike and zander in the UK.

    Styled on the typical deep bellied baitfish such as herring, scad and fusiliers. The design has been refined over years of testing and many prototypes. The subtle features like the flattened top of the head, the scalloped curve on the side of the body and the small tail wings all make the action on this lure dynamic.

    The Madscad sinks level and actually wiggles like a subtle vibration lure whilst sinking, and it's erratic swimming action when twitched on a cast retrieve is irresistible to fish. The 190mm deep can be trolled at 15kn for the ultimate super tough wahoo and tuna lure.

    You can employ a faster straight retrieve as well, but either the faster retrieve or the slow twitch will entice strikes. Our recommended retrieve when casting is a couple of quick twitches and then a 2-3 second pause to let the lure slowly sink and wiggle and then twitch it again.

    The larger size Madscad lures are ideal for tuna, gt's and kingfish with the smaller size being an all-rounder for the likes of reef species , tuna , barracuda, kingfish, spanish mackerel and many other species.

    All models now come rigged with 2 Nomad Inline single hooks and heavy duty split rings.
