Yamamoto Hula Grub
5" Soft Plastic Spider Grub
The Hula Grub from the mind of legendary bait designer and Senko creator, Gary Yamamoto, is a soft plastic skirted grub that resembles a crayfish. Gary Yamamoto fishes the 5" 97-series with a half-ounce jig head, surprisingly heavier than most people use, moved fast in a swimming motion. Throw to the bank, and as soon as it hits bottom, start reeling it to give it a fast action until it hits bottom again.Gary Yamamoto uses 16 to 20 lb. test line. He's not finesse fishing or using light line, but going for aggressive fish with a heavy flipping stick and baitcasting reel. He prefers fluorocarbon line that has low stretch and high abrasion resistance. He'll swim hula jigs in shallows from zero to ten feet more quickly than most people, bumping along bottom almost like you'd use a big-billed crankbait. If no fish are present or biting shallow, he'll switch to a heavier jig head without changing the bait, but switching into ten to twenty feet of water with a 5/8 or ¾ oz. jig head for fish that may be active at those depths. Yamamoto may go up to a one-ounce jig in water down to thirty feet deep. Just bounce bottom and reel quickly enough to keep from getting snagged while you swim the lure on a 44W-series football head with a wire-pronged weedguard to deter snags. The Hula Grub is 5" in length and comes 10 per bag.
