Poured using Yamamoto’s custom heavily weighted soft plastic formula, the Yamamoto Yamatanuki Stick Bait weighs in at 5/8oz which allows it to be fished weightless with great castability and a fast horizontal rate of fall. Ideal for pairing with a 5/0 extra wide gap hook, the Yamatanuki is an incredible power finesse option for flipping into cover or dragging open water, as well as casting to fish on forward-facing sonar. While this is the first time the Yamatanuki has been made available in the US, it has been a very popular soft bait in the Japanese Yamamoto lineup for years and is credited as the bait that started the genre of ‘heavy’ weighted soft plastic lures state-side.
Available in hand-picked colors from Yamamoto’s pro-staff to provide a wide array of fish-catching options no matter what the conditions, each bait is molded with a hook pocket to provide easy rigging and greatly improve your hook-up ratios. Staying true to their roots of creating innovative baits that absolutely catch fish, the Yamamoto Yamatanuki Stick Bait is another incredible tool to add to your fish-catching arsenal from the world’s premier soft plastic brand.
