Gary Yamamoto Hardbaits

Recommended Posts

I like the look of his hard baits, the only ones that I own are the tate, they fish well.  I prefer the spook, but that might be nostalgia speaking.

I have the Tate as well and the Poppper.  They both work and caught some fish, but I didn't see anything particulary special with them.

I like the popper and the tenku jerkbait. Nothing spectacular about them but they have caught some fish

I've got a chikara (forgive me if I misspelled that) crank in the baby bass color. With the holographic design it gives off a lot of flash. As others above have stated..... They catch fish.

I picked up the larger size popper today in the black bone color on sale at Cabela's, I look forward to trying it out. The hooks seem high quality yet a little small for the size of the lure. I guess they'll still stick a fish though

I am guilty of buying a few because they killed it with packaging and colors....I don't think they caught on however since they have been on clearance racks at Dicks for the past year and can't give them away.

I think they are decent, I have caught fish on the topwaters and he puts triple grips on the lures, and I have no doubt the crankbaits and spinnerbaits would work if you put em through a day. I like that black color and shape of their topwater popper at night in the 88mm size. Reminds me of the black and white color Heddon makes for the spook but with better detail. 

Tackle business is getting brutal these days, Companies are all copying each other and now Yum is putting out that Pulse Swimbait for $3.50 with 8 per pack and the bait is as legit as they come, now they are priced with Havoc and Zoom and I like buying Dingers for $2 a pack.

I think it is hard to break into the hardbait market if you already have a name in the soft bait side and vise versa. Most companies use an umbrella like Pradco or Rapala,Storm, Terminator, Blue Fox etc...Strike King makes it work though, I never see their stuff on clearance bins unless the buyer orders the wrong stuff, If they get Deep Divers for 20 feet in, they end up at .97 really quick.
