Sterling 36in Chaos Tracker Bar with 6in Squid – Port – Purple – Black - Review
The Sterling Tackle 36in Chaos Tracker Bar with 6in Bulb Squid is a highly effective spreader bar designed to attract pelagic fish such as tuna, dolphin, and billfish. It is named after the chaotic surface commotion and loud noise it creates, making it one of the most deadly directional spreader bars available.
This pre-rigged spreader bar features a high-grade titanium bar with a diameter of .125 inches. It is loaded with a combination of soft birds, squid, and rigged stingers, which are proven to attract pelagic fish to your spread.
One of the unique features of this spreader bar is the plexiglass keel fitted under the lead bird. This keel causes the bar to track up to 30 ft. outward from its normal tracking line. By running in a more visible location in the clean water outside the prop wash, it increases the chances of attracting fish.
The center line of the spreader bar is equipped with six 5-inch soft rattling birds, creating extra noise and surface splash to draw the attention of fish. The wing lines feature a total of ten 6-inch bulb squids, simulating a school of baitfish. The rear squids are fitted with rattles to further enhance the noise factor.
The bottom teaser bird contains a 400lb stainless bearing swivel, which is used to attach the 9in Mini-Machine Stinger. The stinger is rigged with tri-beads and a 9/0 4x strong knife-edge big game hook. The center line is rigged with 250lb smoke blue Momoi monofilament, while the wing lines are rigged with 200lb.
All critical connection points are protected with loop protectors to ensure durability. Each spreader bar comes with its own clear vinyl/mesh lure bag for easy storage and wash down.
