Stay Fresh or Get Salty with Yo-Zuri
Introduction: Just like myself, Yo-Zuri has been
in the fresh and saltwater game for quite some time now. I’ve been using their
Hybrid copolymer line and a few of their hardbaits religiously for many years
now and have caught hundreds of fish with these products. Since their offerings
cover such a broad spectrum of environments and species, it should come as no
surprise they had a healthy batch of new products to show off at this year’s
Pro Angler Jimmy Reese shows us the new Natural Perch 3DB
Starting off, there are four new colors for both the 3DB
Jerkbait 110 and 110 Deep. These colors were hand-picked by pro staff and
brought to life by Yo-Zuri’s Japan design team. The latest offerings include
Clown, Natural Perch, Black and Gold, and Table Rock Shad.
The new Real Colors look fantastic
Not to be forgotten, the rest of the 3DB family gets an array of
new “real” colors like Real Bluegill and Real Gizzard Shad. These should be
excellent choices when fish demand an ultra-realistic color scheme, such as when
facing very clear water.
The colors extend through many of the bait families
An addition to the crankbait lineup is the new Hardcore 2+ 60F.
This bait is designed with an internal magnetic weight transfer system for
longer casts along with a rounded lip rather than a square one. The Hardcore 2+
60F can achieve depths of 6–10 feet depending of course on casting distance and
line size. Measuring 2 ⅜ inches and available in 10 colors, these will be
offered at a price of $9.99.
Yo-Zuri crankbaits always look sharp but the new patterns
look especially good
Looking for a new shad body crank? Yo-Zuri offers up a new
option with the Hardcore Shad 60SF. This slow-floating bait is built with a
weight transfer system for longer casts and swims with a tight wiggle to trigger
lethargic fish. This bait measures 2 ⅜ inches, weighs ¼ ounce, and can be had in
10 color schemes all for $9.99.
New baby bass pattern
Lip-less cranks are so awesome partly because of their
versatility. From jigging in deep water to ripping through grass lines, they are
ideal for covering a ton of real estate and triggering bites in different water
temperatures. This year, Yo-Zuri adds a new lip-less crank in the form of the
Hardcore Vibe 75. Weighing a hefty ¾ ounce and offering a healthy 3 inch
profile, these baits are perfectly balanced, filled with multiple rattles, and
swim with a tight shimmy and plenty of sound. Choose from 10 different colors
with each bait offered at a price of $9.99.
Lot's of Rattl'n Vibe patterns
Looking for something more subtle? When everyone else is
throwing something LOUD, opting for a bait with a deeper, more subtle knock can
be just the ticket. The new Rattl’n Vibe One Knock is built with a single
knocker for a deeper sound to trigger shy bass. Perfectly balanced and
complemented with quality components, they are 2 ½ inches long, weigh ⅝ ounces,
and can be had for $9.99 each.
The One Knock will deliver s deeper sound
Go big with the new Hardcore Bullet Crank 7+. This beastly
crankbait is said to achieve depths of up to 27 feet on 14 pound fluorocarbon
and features an internal magnetic weight transfer system for those important
long-distance casts when deep cranking. These baits are 4 inches in length,
weigh 2 ounces, and come in 10 colors that each have a protective powder coating
for extra durability. $15.99
The Bullet Crank has an internal magnetic weight transfer
system and gets down deep
Fishing for explosive saltwater species with topwaters can be
exhilarating...to say the least. Yo-Zuri will offer two larger sizes of the 3D
inshore popper which include 3 ½ and 4 ⅜ inch versions. Made to be durable, they
come equipped with either prism or 3D “real” color patterns, both of which keep
their cosmetics internal with a clear coat over the top. While the clear outside
of the baits can get scuffed by teeth and rocks, the actual color schemes will
go untouched since they are protected inside. These new poppers will come in 14
colors with pricing at $8.99 (3 ½ inch) and $9.99 (4 ⅜ inch).
Whether it is fresh or salt Yo-Zuri has an expansive
lineup of hard baits to bolster your arsenal
the new products will be available Fall 2021.
