Anglers to our south love to troll a variety of Yo-Zuri Minnows – including the new Crystal 3-D jointed version - for Spanish mackerel and other predator species. The same techniques work in our waters for stripers, blues and even the occasional Spanish mack that cruises up north. Yo-Zuri’s George Large shows how to do it right on TheFisherman.com Yo-Zuri product partner page.
H.D. Carbon™ Leader
Yo-Zuri has taken flourocarbon and made better by developing H.D. Carbon Leader in Disappearing Pink. The advantage of Disappearing Pink comes from the color spectrum and how various colors fade in the water column. H.D. Carbon Leader eliminates the negative aspect of fluorocarbon with its Disappearing Pink color which camouflages scuffs and nicks resulting in a much longer leader life.
Pins Minnow™ Series
Any angler targeting trout with spinning gear in the northeast would be ill equipped without a few Yo-Zuri Pins Minnows in their arsenal. The Pins Minnow has come to be known around the world as "The only trout lure that should be outlawed", and comes in several different sizes to cover a wide variety of fishing situations.
Any surfcaster or boatman knows how deadly effective the Yo-Zuri Mag Darter can be when targeting striped bass, blues and weakfish. Although a small plug, measuring 5" and weighing 1 oz, the Mag Darter casts like a rocket. Upon the retrieve Mag Darters will dive subsurface and exhibit a seductive side to side darting and rolling action distinctive of injured baitfish.
Edge Trembler Minnow™
The Edge Trembler Minnow from Yo-Zuri is unlike most plugs out there, in that it is actually a sub surface walk-the-dog, or spook type, lure. It's unique "Triad", or three sided, shape allows for it to track true in the water, reflect attention grabbing light in all directions, and staying horizontal as it sinks while also rolling side to side.
Edge Minnow™ Suspending
There are a multitude of minnow patterns on the market today but none with as unique a shape and characteristics as the Edge Minnow. With specially angled sides, the Edge Minnow can capture and reflect light in all directions like a well cut diamond. Couple this with a holographic finish that imitates the tattered scales falling from an injured baitfish and you have juggernaut of a fish attractor.
Sashimi Circle Hook™ Series
With a growing trend toward catch and release fishing these days, Yo-Zuri has developed the Sashimi Circle Hook Series; the first ever factory produced plugs complete with circle hooks. This way, when a fish that just can't resist swallowing your plug strikes, you can guarantee your ability to successfully release it to fight another day.
Sashimi Slider Metallic™
Those who fish large spooks know how effective they are in coaxing savage strikes from trophy gamefish. Yo-Zuri has taken the same principles that make these surface plugs effective to produce a revolutionary sub surface lure. These plugs are equipped Yo-Zuri's renowned, patented Sashimi Color Change Technology while also incorporating a reflective, metallic finish.
The patented Sashimi Color Change finish allows the Sashimi Minnow to visibly change color when viewed at different angles which accurately emulates the way a baitfish appears under stress as well as the unique color profiles exhibited by fish scales reflecting sun or moonlight. All together this translate to a true to life baitfish pattern.

Sashimi 3D Squirt™ Floating

Sashimi Bull Metallic™
