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.
Ratings & Reviews
Great skirts but difficult to order
The photo of each skirt needs to show the part number with it to make it easier to order.
Great skirts, terrible website update!
The skirt quality is as good as you'll find but the new website is the worst you'll find, particularly if you're on a mobile phone. Please go back to your old website design where you can actually see what you're trying to order!
Please go back to old page layout
Agree with above customer. The new page layout is not great. It is exceptionally bad on mobile...which probably makes up about 70% of your buyers
Fantastic color choices!
by Whiskey Jack 13
OK - I agree that these skirts are not as easy to order as they should be. But the color choices are fantastic and these skirts really work. I will never put another skirt on a spinnerbait as long as these are around. Exterior glitter makes entire lure sparkle. Love 'em!
Craw colors are the best
by Pegg Legg Gregg
I'm here to tell you that the 441 Summer Craw, the 711 Hot Craw and the 609 Sexy Craw are as good as craw colors get. If you find better color combos, please let me know! 5 star color patterns for sure!
