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.

Kayak anglers can use the Scum Frog "Bigfoot" like a conventional buzz bait, but because the Bigfoot floats, you can stop and spend more time around weeds, brushes and stumps. Or, you can retrieve in short strokes between pauses. Either way, Bigfoot will bubble and splash, driving fish wild!
