We at Boag Hog Baits are committed to producing only the highest quality, environmentally safe, 100% LEAD FREE TACKLE on the market.
We have a large selection of LEAD FREE TACKLE including, Jigs, Jig Heads, Tube and Swim Bait Hooks, Drop Shot Weights and much more.
Our products are produced using Tin Bismuth which has an unusually low toxicity for a heavy metal and transmits the bottom as well as, if not better than, lead. As the toxicity of lead baits has become more apparent in recent years to environmentalists in states across the U.S. alloy uses for bismuth metal as a replacement for lead, have become an increasing part of bismuth's commercial importance.
As of January 1, 2012, it is illegal to use lead sinkers and lead jigs weighing less than 1 ounce in Massachusetts' freshwater lakes, ponds, rivers and streams. Source: Commonwealth of Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife
