The Yamamoto Yamatanuki Heavy Soft Plastic bait is a new offering from the Yamamoto lineup of baits, which has been popular in Japan for years!

It is designed to be a heavy soft plastic bait (less heavy than the 3.5" inch version), weighing 1/4 oz and measuring 2.5" inches long. The custom formula used to make the bait allows it to be fished weightless, while still maintaining its casting abilities and fast fall rate. This makes it an excellent choice for flipping, casting, dragging, and even casting to fish detected by forward-facing sonar.

One of the unique features of the Yamatanuki is that it is part of a trend of "heavy" soft plastic lures that have become increasingly popular in the US in recent years. The trend was actually started by the original Yamatanuki, making it a true innovator in the field of soft plastic baits.

The Yamatanuki comes in 8 carefully chosen colors, all handpicked by professionals to provide a wide range of fish-catching options in any condition. Each bag contains 10 baits, giving anglers plenty of opportunities to test out this innovative new offering from one of the world's most renowned soft plastic brands! Comes with 10 per pack.

Be sure to check out the brand new Yamatanuki Kit, a collaboration from Yamamoto and Discount Tackle featuring the 3.5" Yamatanuki!

Gary Yamamoto 2.5 Inch Yamatanuki Heavy Soft Plastic - 10 Pack

R

Smallmouth Candy

I had the opportunity to fish this bait out on the mighty Columbia River this past weekend and I am loving it! I rigged mine up on a small 1/0 - 3/16 oz Gamakatsu "Football 24" Jighead. With the added weight of the jighead, I was able to get it down quicker and increase the bottom contact to feel the slightest of bites out in deep water. It wasn't long before a nice three-pound Smallmouth annihilated it! I was throwing out a drop shot as well that day, but the Yamatanuki was getting hit way harder. Due to the way I rigged mine up, I found this little bait to be pretty durable. After 3 hard fighting fish and swift hooksets, my Yamatanuki was still alive. The bulk of the bait helps the durability, and with 10 baits per pack I think the value is great. I can't wait to get back out and try the "Mimizu" color. I highly recommend the Yamatanuki.

Yamatanuki 2.5

The yamatanuki's horizontal fall and flutter s irresistible to smallmouth and they hit it hard. They can tear easily but I've been wacky rigging them with an o ring which makes them more durable. Another winner from Yamamoto baits!

It works

Finally grabbed a bag, after hearing some good reviews. This bait definitely catches fish!!! Only knock would be durability, going to need a few bags, they go quickly.
