Yamato Kreature

Lure Make & Model

Use:
Freshwater
Lure type:
MSRP ($):
7.99

Slightly heavier than a 5-inch Senko, Yamamoto's 4-inch "Kreature" can be cast weightless for a slow, horizontal descent. Raise your rod tip, and you can burn it back across the water's surface like a buzzbait. This versatile lure's performance is outstanding when Texas rigged for flipping or Carolina rigged for those bottom-hugging fish. The Kreature's forward arms swim during the fall, and when it comes to rest on the bottom, the slightest movement will cause the rear paddles to spring forward and back while the floating tail tantalizes fish.

Gary Yamamoto "Kreature"

Swimming a jig has become one of my favorite fishing styles and I usually have one rigged up and ready on my yak especially if I'm on a lake with docks.

Most of the versatility has been covered in other reviews so I'll just echo by saying this bait works in a multitude of ways.

When used as a trailer on a jig it offers excellent movement, floatation and bulk which really slows the presentation when dropping or going slack while swimming the jig. Very nice bait.

As mentioned in other reviews, it is SOFT and will tear easily. Because of this I don't use it when in heavy cover. It really excels around docks or open water.

Overall I am a fan.

Kreature Bait

Much like the Senko by Gary Yamamoto this bait just catches fish, simple as that.

It comes in 4" only. They've come up with tons of colors to choose from to fish in different waters.

You can fish this bait a ton of different ways. It's heavy enough to fish weightless, which is how I normally fish it. I've even added them on as a jig trailer from time to time. I'll use this over a brush hog everyday of the week.

Again, much like the senko it will tear very easily being impregnated by as much salt as GYCB's use. They also only come in a 7pk so that can be a hit on the wallet but they put fish in the boat so you'll leave the water happy.
