LurePartsOnline.com carries a wide range of silicone skirts. Silicone is an ideal material for fishing lure skirts as it is elastic, durable, and retains its color. Silicone will not “melt” in your tackle box (like the traditional rubber skirts did) and will not react to or bleed out when in contact with soft plastic lures. These skirts come assembled and ready to slide on your lure or jig. Some silicone material features round strands, but most silicone is cut from a sheet in flat, narrow strips.
Silicone skirts are made using a variety of different “collars”, which are the bands that hold the strands together in the middle of the skirt. Standard skirts generally use the simple bands. However, there are bands that feature attachments that allow user to add one or two rattles to the skirt after it is assembled. These are sometimes called “rattle collars” or “mickey mouse” collars due to their shape. Rattles must be bought separately and attached after skirt is assembled on jig or lure. More recent collars include “pro-tie” collars that enable skirt material to “flare out” more and also allows the silicone colors to be intentionally separated and specific patterns to be maintained in the skirt. These collars can be made of rubber or silicone and generally have a larger center hole allowing skirt to slide on an off your lure more easily, without tearing up the skirt in the process.
How to choose your skirt (although most skirts work on most lures):
1. Lure Type – make sure skirt is designed for your lure type (jig, spinnerbait, buzzbait etc)
2. Collar Type – do you want to add rattles? Do you want extra flare? Do you want to change out skirts often?
3. Skirt Color – choose a color that matches your jig or spinnerbait head. Choose a color that matches the type of forage your target fish are eating
4. Skirt Fullness – some people like full, “bushy” skirts and some like them as “thin” as possible. Full skirts can be thinned out, but thin skirts can’t be added to very easily. Sometimes full skirts interfere with your plastic trailer’s action.

Good for bass jigs
by Southern Comfort
Got some of these a few years ago when they first came out and had good success with them. Now they are all I use for jigs. Super easy to slide on jig collar and the color combos are good too. With these, you don't have to settle for the store bought skirt colors. If I buy a jig I like, I can discard the cheap skirt and replace it with one of these in my favorite color.
Not your average cheap skirt!
by Grampa Joe
These skirts are a big step up from the crap that comes on most store bought jigs. I got myself a pile of these and am cutting off the cheap skirts on my jigs and replacing them with these. Bought 10 packs to get the discount. Now I am all set for the summer.
Green Pumpkin - king of jig colors
by Steelie Dan
If you had to choose one (just one) skirt color to fish the rest of your life, what color would it be? Here is your answer - this Green Pumpkin (color number 539). This will catch you fish all year long. You don't need anything else in your tacklebox. Extremely natural looking with black flecks in it. Truly unbeatable.
