Infused with salt for added weight, this jerkbait retains the unique performance of the original Sakamata Shad while offering enhanced castability and the ability to target deeper sections of the water column.

Key Features:

  1. Streamlined Hydrodynamic Profile: The Sakamata Shad Heavy Weight boasts a distinctive body shape and hydrodynamic design, expertly minimizing water flow resistance. This exceptional feature enables effortless side-to-side darting action, effortlessly triggered by the slightest twitches from your rod tip, luring aggressive strikes from even the most cautious predators.

  2. Realistic Shad Movement: The keeled fins positioned along the head masterfully channel water downward, impeccably mimicking a shad's evasive movements when it leaps on the water's surface to elude predators. During pauses, the fins act as stabilizers, ensuring a lifelike horizontal fall that irresistibly attracts nearby fish.

  3. Subtle Wiggling Action: Embracing innovation, the bait's belly is infused with a generous amount of salt, creating a subtle and tantalizing wiggling action during the fall, reminiscent of a soft stickbait. This captivating motion significantly increases your chances of enticing even the most discerning fish to strike.

  4. Enhanced Rigging Possibilities: The Deps Sakamata Shad Soft Jerkbait is designed with a deep groove along its belly, optimizing hook penetration. Additionally, hook slots along the back enable tex-posed hook rigging, presenting a weedless profile that boosts your chances of successful hookups.

  5. Versatility in Presentation: This jerkbait is deadly when fished weightless on your favorite EWG style hook, with an impressive range of effectiveness at both slow and fast twitching speeds. You can also explore other popular Japanese rigging techniques, such as using it on a small split shot rig or a heavy Carolina-rig, to target fish in deeper waters.

  6. Wide Color and Size Selection: Offering multiple colors and sizes, the Deps Sakamata Shad Heavy Weight Soft Jerkbait allows you to customize your approach to different fishing conditions, giving your presentation a fresh look and ensuring you can adapt to various scenarios.

Take your fishing to new heights with the Deps 8" Sakamata Shad Heavy Weight Soft Jerkbait, a testament to Japanese craftsmanship and innovation.
