The Salas 6X Yoyo jig is a yellowtail catching machine. The shape and color of these heavy jigs creates the illusion of a fleeing baitfish from the depths. It triggers a bite from a variety of species but yellowtail off the Southern California coast is the main reason we use these jigs.
Simply drop it down to the bottom or desired depth, put the reel in gear and bring it back at a fast but steady retrieve. If they are there, they will eat it!
The lure may spin as it come up, that is ok and gets bit really well. You are trying to get a reaction out of the fish and if it looks like it's going to get away, a yellowtail will hunt it down. Hang on tight though, when they hit it they will hit it hard.
The hook and rings are heavy enough for most yellowtail but you can also catch tuna on them. Usually they like chrome or chrome blue, but they will eat other colors. Barracuda and dorado will also bite any Salas Lure as long as it's moving fast.
1 1/16" Wide
7 3/4" (body and hook)
The paint may differ since they are hand made. Often times the pain get's chipped in shipping to us, being shipped in bulk. It doesn't change the fish catching ability of the jig. It's going to chip when it hits the bottom and get all scratched up on the fight back to the boat. DO NOT let this affect your confidence on your fish catching abilities. We have all seen the jigs that have little to no paint left on them that get bit just fine if not better. If you have questions, feel free to call us.
