If you're looking for a bait that provides the look of a tube bait, but has the fall rate of a bulkier heavy bait then check out the Yamamoto Fat Ika.
We like it rigged on a 4/0 wide gap hook from Owner or Gamakatsu EWG but our favorite is the Owner 4/0 Beast Hook. The beast hook gap is larger allowing for the hook to come through the plastic for better hooks sets. The screw in CPS spring holds it extremely well and won't tear out in most circumstances.
It has the skirted bottom of a tube, and the body of a grub with a little extra bulk. With the Fat Ika you can jig and swim more accurately than with most tube baits.
As it falls, it has a built-in side to side movement, which is all the bass need some days.
Ordered and delivered as promised at the time that was promised! Thanks. These baits are amazing for large mouth at lake Barrett!
