Premium Japanese minnow bait, challenging the hegemony of the Rapala
by IanLJones -
These are beautifully made minnow baits that are extremely good at triggering strikes in clear water and difficult conditions. Their action is comparable to the original floating Rapala and Husky Jerk Rapala - that is, a slow rolling wobble. The reflective foil of these Yo Zuri baits seems to make them a lot flashier than the Rapalas, which might be good in clear open water conditions, or fishing murky shallows. With the foil protected by a tough polycarbonate shell, these are durable and tooth resistant. The hooks are tinned (saltwater ready) - I've been switching these out with lacquer finished freshwater hooks so if I lose the lure it stops killing seagulls quicker. There is not a lot of difference between the 'floating', 'suspending' and 'sinking' versions - the weight differences among these is small - I go with the floating versions. Fished with a downrigger or wire line these are Lake Trout killers in Canada. The 'Smelt', 'Silver Black' and 'Clown' colours are excellent.
