Skirts Plus Hole-In-One Replacement Skirts for Fishing Lures ~ 5 Count
Give all your jigs, spinnerbaits and buzzbaits a fresh, exciting new look with these premium lure skirts!
Manufactured by Skirts Plus Corporation using their premium BIO-FLEX silicone material. This is some of the best skirt material in the world. It is super soft for pulsating, breathing action. The way the strands are banded and tied together by Skirts Plus is with their Hole-In-One collar.
The Hole-In-One collar is one of the ultimate skirt technologies for producing complex baitfish patterns since the strands can't wiggle out of place. Each strand on these skirts are sandwiched and glued between an outer band and an inner core hub. That permanently and perfectly locks every strand in their original positions. The strands cannot shift out of place, jumble the colors up or all pile over onto one side or the other. You cannot end up with a lopsided skirt. It always maintains its coloration and symmetrical strand balance. So when you want to represent a small baitfish or complex color pattern that has distinct back, side and belly colors, the Hole-In-One skirt more realistically simulates and maintains a small baitfish or complex configuration. The strands stay perfectly in place and can not move out of place, even through lots of rugged use. The back, belly and side colors stay exactly where they should be, and that helps preserve the baitfish-like color patterns.
But that's not all. The inner hub has flanged edges that gives a permanent bloom or flare to both sides of the skirt where the strands come off the hub. There is a flare or 'puff' on both sides of the skirt where it comes off the core. Many anglers favor this flare of the Hole-In-One skirts. They feel it gives the skirt a plumper, livelier appearance and a bouncier wriggling action than a standard flat-banded skirt.
Hole-In-Ones are 5-1/4" inches long. They're usually banded off-center to make one shorter and one longer side. Usually, the long side is put on facing forward, but you have a choice how you want to put it on, and it is fun to experiment. They tend to have 44 to 50 strands.
Making Half Skirts from Hole-In-One Skirts
One of the great things about Hole-In-One skirts is that you can trim them to make them into the best "Half", "Finesse" or "Spider" skirts (depending what you call them). I say they wil be the best skirts of this kind because the Hole-In-One collar will keep the trimmed short hairs from pulling out. You can make half-size skirts with the short and fuzzy forward-facing stubble. These are usually exactly half the length of full-size skirts. The strands on the Hole-In-One are locked in place with a thin clear application of silicone adhesive sandwiched in between an inner core collar and outer band collar. It's hard to see there's any glue, but it's there, which is especially important to lock and keep the short hair ends from slipping out. The strands can't hardly move or get pulled out of place. So there's never any need for you to buy factory-cut half-skirts because you can do-it-yourself with one simple snip of the scissors and the Hole-In-One will never let a single strand pull out from under the collar!
Cut the long side of a Hole-in-One skirt short to quickly make a half-size finesse or spider skirt from it.

Tilapia El Salto Hole-In-One. This is one of four skirt patterns that imitate baitfish found in Mexican waters. First, the Tilapia El Salto pattern matches the gold-hued tilapia in El Salto. The other two Mexican tilapia colors are Hendrix (aka Tilapia Bacaruto) and Herring Bone (aka Tilapia El Cuchillo). And fourth, the Machete Shad skirt imitates threadfin shad found in Mexican waters. All four of these skirt patterns, however, imitate many different baitfish found many different places throughout the world. So give then a try anywhere you fish!
