ICAST COUNTDOWN: Japanese favourite comes to the US
The Yo-Zuri Hydro Monster Shot has been a highly-productive lure in Japan for a number of years. Now it is about to become available in seven colour patterns designed specifically for the US.
All four patterns of the fast-sinking hard bait will be at ICAST, and will also be available by then at local retail shops and online, says the manufacturer.
The versatile Hydro Monster Shot will deliver a topwater skipping action and a swimming action on a steady retrieve. It can imitate a dying baitfish wobble on the fall or produce a darting action when twitched or jigged.
The long-casting lure has a through-wire construction, durable ABS and lead body and triple strength saltwater grade treble hooks and split rings.
Yo-Zuri recommends it for casting to tuna that are feeding on small baits, for Spanish Mackerel on a burning retrieve or for striped bass feasting on sandals or spearing.
The company, based in Fukuoka, has been making lures, lines and leaders for more than 50 years.
