Yakamito PX - questionable quality - and purpose?

Post by Sneaky1 » Tue Apr 05, 2022 3:29 pm

A very Japanese sounding "Yakamito" PX 3.0 jig
Its weight is loose out the packet - that is, still attached to the lure but wobbles - WTF?
This could be forgiven if it attracted squid but it got a fat Zero - while drifted side by side with an old Yamashita, which has landed quite a few in the same session.

The yamashita sutte r or the rui jigs are lot more better and value for money than the yakamito ones.
Pretty sure they have rebranded the yakamito to something different recently.
Still learning to Anchor :)
