Staying true to our roots of innovative baits that absolutely catch fish, we bring you the Yamatanuki. While this is it’s first time being available in the US, it has been a very popular bait for the Japanese Yamamoto lineup for years. The Yamatanuki is credited as the bait that started a trend of “heavy” soft plastic lures that have become popular in the US in recent years with offerings from Japanese manufacturers.
The original Yamatanuki is a 3.5” size that weighs 5/8 oz. It is made from a custom “heavy” soft plastic formula that allows it to be fished weightless yet cast great and fall fast. This makes the Yamatanuki an incredible option for flipping, casting and dragging, as well as casting to fish on forward-facing sonar. The 8 colors are handpicked by our pros to give anglers an awesome array of fish-catching options no matter what conditions they face. The Yamatanuki is another incredible tool in your fishing catching arsenal brought to you by the world’s most premium soft plastic brand, Yamamoto Baits.
* An ideal hook to consider using for this bait is the Gamakatsu Superline Spring-Lock Hook in sizes 3/0-5/0 (click below).
