Made by Gary Eoff. The Smokey Joe is another popular lure by Marlin Magic. The Smokey Joe is a short angle faced lure, that is aggressive in its movement, leaving behind a thick long smoke trail especially on the rigger in the blue water outside the prop wash. Run the Smokey Joe on the corners or riggers with a 10/0 hookset and get ready for a bite. This particular Smokey Joe is part of Marlin Magic’s Delux Shell Series that is made with real abalone shell. With the harvest of abalone being banned, lures made with real abalone are extremely hard to come by now a days and Gary’s supply of abalone is limited. Gary hand cuts the abalone shell to perfectly fit on the insert, creating a unique and beautiful piece of artwork very few lure makers do now. If you are looking to add a special lure to your collection or you are looking for a rare collectors piece, the Delux Shell also known as the Jewelry Baits by Marlin Magic are a must have.
