What's up with Manta's???????

Recommended Posts

So I have kind of heard that River Run tackle isn't producing anymore Manta's. Was looking on Rollie and Helen's and they don't even have any for sale anymore. Can anyone shed anymore light on this?????

The guy that makes them has been virtually impossible to get a hold of for orders and such..

I was told that the guy who paints them for River Run is sitting on 600 of freshly painted sweet sweet Mantas and hasn't been paid...

If anyone else has some info, I would love to know as well.

I have tried to call the manufacturer and no response. I talked to Thorne Bros and they have tried to order more 3 or 4 times without any luck. If anyone finds any please let me know.

Thanks. That is a sweet bait. I bet that one tires ya out after a full day of jerkin. Do they make a jointed model by chance. That would be cool.

Actually they are very easy to work, really subtle rod movements make them dance..therefore you will not get tired out

Brian is correct. YOu can throw these baits all day long with ease. Even the Hang 10 models are super easy to work and can throw all day. One of my personal favorite glider jerkbaits to throw and a pretty productive one as well!

I finally received an email for River Run get um while you can:

Thank you for your interest in our line of fishing products. I have decided to scale back our operations so that I can spend more time with my family and do the truly important things in life like teaching my son how to fish while we both still have time together on this earth. As a result of this, we are forced to discontinue distributing our products through our nationwide dealer network.

Our Manta family of lures has created quite a loyal following since their introduction in 2001. This loyalty has become evident with some reports reaching me that Mantas have sold in excess of $50 in recent online auctions on fears that they will no longer be available.

Let me be the first to put any fears to rest. I am very pleased to announce that we will continue production on a limited basis for you, our loyal customers. Our target date to open our secure, online store is March 1. Due to the popularity of the Manta, I highly suggest that you place your orders soon after March 1, because there will only be a fixed amount of lures available each year. When we’re out of stock on an item, that item will not be available again until the following year. Continue to check http://www.riverruntackle.com for updates.

Thank you,

Paul Peck

    • Impractable - your on Mille Lacs, sky getting dark, you pick up an AIS signal on your app 14 miles SW of your location heading north in your direction at 72 MPH. Amazed by the boat speed you call your buddy Joe one of two in MN who also has the AIS system & find out he is on 169 in his F150 heading to Leach, just forgot to turn off his chart plotter after bragging about his new $900 AIS with his neighbor before leaving home, you know the guy that has to have every electronic available. All those dozen or so guys in there 14' Lunds cranked up there Scott Attwaters and are heading to shore at the frightening speed of 4 MPH trying to beat the on-coming storm and 4' waves. They really have no desire for those newfangled useless things.

    • One more REPRESENT.  Too hot for the hoody. 😓   The winds got up on Erie too much to make a good run to better water but we still wanted to fish.  We hung around the breakwalls and got sheepies and smallies.  No matter what we caught was going to be C&R for me so a bunch of these were fine.   And a quick shot of the falls.  That water is moving incredibly fast!   Almost done with the loop.  I’m coming back on the Canadian side of the Great Lakes.  There are some really beautiful areas up here.   BTW, the section of NY State from the Allegheny Mountains to Buffalo made me feel at home.  Very similar to areas of MN.  I guess that’s why people like it so much! 
    • Don't get me wrong, I like that idea but I will be able to use a generator all spring, summer and fall for camping.  I go to a lot of campgrounds with no power and tend to run more things then just a TV.  I will just get more use out of it.  Some day I will have a direct vent heater in the house but its not happening this year.  Maybe come tax time in the spring.
    • If it were me, I would buy the furnace and wait on the generator. Who needs tv in a fish house? If you really need to power a tv, i would think you could handle that with one of the cheap little 900 watt generators you can get at harbor freight for a while until you save up more money.   https://www.harborfreight.com/900-max-starting-watt-max-starting-2-cycle-gas-powered-generator-63025.html  
    • I'm planning on insulating it.  When I built the house I never did but after thinking about it for awhile I'm going to now.
    • If your floor is insulated you may get by at 750 watts, but if it's not insulated it won't keep it very warm in the house.
    • So maybe I'd be better off spending a little more for the 3500w generator?  My house is only 6.5 x 12 so I don't have much to heat.  I know there are duel watt heaters (750/1500).  If I can get by on 750w then that would only be about 50% load on a 2000w generator.
