‘Deadly’ Gamakatsu bass rig now available in the US


A new bass fishing rig described as “deadly” is now available to anglers across North America.

Gamakatsu’s Gika Rig was developed in Japan and can be used with a wide range of soft plastics like worms and craw or creature imitation baits, each producing a different action.

“The Gika Rig combines the natural presentation of finesse fishing with the speed of power fishing,” said Gamakatsu Sales Manager, Jeff Roberts. “It’s a deadly blend of tactics that largemouth and smallmouth bass find irresistible.”

Gika Rigs use an offset shank worm hook with an elongated dropshot weight attached directly to the eye with a solid ring. The weight size is stamped into the side of each weight, making it easy to identify when it’s time to alter the depth and drop speed of the jig. The weight, painted black for stealthy presentations, also features a  snap to make changing weights quick and easy 

Another advantage is its natural swimming and dropping motion, says the manufacturer. The solid ring allows the plastic bait to float freely and rotate from side to side as it descends.

“The Gika Rig offers a different presentation than most other baits, and it may be the edge you need to put more fish in the boat, especially in lakes with extra angling pressure,” added Roberts.

Both the rig and the weight come in three different sizes, the rig in packs of two (including weights) and the weights in packs of four.
