Nikko tailrubber soft bait - sliding jigs

Nikko tailrubber soft bait - sliding jigs

Anyone who loves the latest goodies in the lure department might well be interested in this little concept available currently from Yeehaa tackle.

We all know how deadly the kaburas from the likes of Catch Fishing are.

Lining up in the orange and red corner are these new versions from Japanese company Nikko.

According to the packet they elicit strike changing orientation!  

The essence of the lure is a buoyant squid tentacled body that is constructed from a very stretchy and 'wobbly' rubber a bit like a Z man.

Hooks look good, a smaller tail hook and a slightly larger main hook hiding in the tentacles - they are teflon coated Owners, so should do the job.

Colours and sizes, red or orange in 80 - 100-120 grams at this stage.

We have not yet tried these on the local snapper, but they look pretty promising!  Stay tuned for a tackle test report coming soon.

The 2019 Daiwa Certate LT
Gear
Daiwa are arguably the world’s biggest banger in the fishing tackle market, so when they release a new top end product we expect it to be great. The Daiwa Certate spinning reel is well up the chain of ‘bling’ and will set you back in the neighbourhood of $800 give or take. Not their very top end, Branzino and Exist are there for the Rolex fans, but certainly as good a reel as you should ever need, and capable of handling some mega sized fish, and doing it smoothly with a dash of ‘mmmmm I love using this reel’.
