The 8" MADMACS is a sinking super high-speed trolling minnow that redefines the possibilities of trolling. Engineered to withstand intense trolling speeds of up to 20 knots, this lure delivers unparalleled performance when rigged correctly. While we recommend trolling it at 6-12 knots for optimal results, the MADMACS has the ability to reach mind-blowing speeds if desired. For detailed instructions on rigging techniques to achieve maximum speed, we invite you to visit the Nomad Design YouTube Channel.

What sets the MADMACS apart is its versatility across a wide range of trolling speeds. Even at slow speeds as low as 5 knots, this lure exhibits an extraordinary vibrating action, thanks to its Patented Autotune System. This innovative system not only ensures the lure maintains a straight troll but also produces an irresistible action throughout its speed range. Whether you prefer a leisurely pace or crave high-speed thrills, the MADMACS is the ultimate addition to any trolling spread.

At slower trolling speeds, the MADMACS dives to a depth of approximately 8-10 feet, allowing you to target fish lurking beneath the surface. When trolled at blazing speeds, it maintains a depth of around 3-4 feet, enabling you to cover vast stretches of water with precision.

Crafted with exceptional durability in mind, the MADMACS features a machine-stamped stainless steel plate and a Pat. Pending Body Design with a full-body foam core construction. This construction technique not only enhances its robustness but also ensures it can withstand any challenge thrown its way. Equipped with super-strong BKK hooks and Heavy Duty split rings, the MADMACS is armed and ready for battle.

Designed and extensively tested in Australia by the experienced Nomad Design Team, the MADMACS draws on decades of charter fishing expertise from the renowned Nomad Sportfishing charter operation. Each lure in the MADMACS range is purpose-built and meticulously balanced and tested to seamlessly harmonize with the chosen hooks, guaranteeing optimal performance and results.

Unlock the true potential of trolling with the MADMACS 8". Whether you're a seasoned angler or a passionate newcomer, this lure will revolutionize your trolling experience and help you conquer the waters with confidence. Prepare for unparalleled action and adventure with the MADMACS by your side.


Autotune Madmacs

Patented Autotune Technology designed by Nomad founder Damon Olsen. Allows the lure to self centre and run super fast in any condition. Also creates more swimming action at slower speeds allowing the Madmacs to troll between 5-20kn depending on model.

Diamond Armour

Proprietary internal design process used with clear ABS plastic bodies, designed to dramatically increase strength. The internal diamond mesh grid pattern creates an internal framework to strengthen the body of the lure, making it far less likely to be crushed or cracked by large predators.

Matrix Metal Plate System

The ultimate internal strength designed for big fish. Features a uniquely designed stainless steel plate in the body mold of the lure. The plate is fused into the lure with a series of small holes at critical locations in the plate, allowing the molded plastic to weave through the plate and create the ultimate in strength.

HD ABS System

Normal plastic was simply not strong enough for our lures, so we designed a special formula of High Density ABS plastic, which is a white colour, and is ultimately stronger than other plastics used for lure production. These lures also feature a thicker wall construction, meaning ultimate strength and durability.
