Gary Yamamoto Kreature
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OneLastCast king of the kreatures Last summer I began experimenting with the Yamamoto Kreatures. I had had so much success with the Senco that I felt I had to give it a try. It was the end of July and I hadn't had consistent success with anything until I began pitching the Kreature into and around cover. My catch rate quadrupled over the next several weeks. I then began sampling similar lures from Yum, Strike King, Gambler and Zoom. Each caught some fish, but nothing like the quantity or quality of the fish I caught on the Kreature. The bass seem to suck it up and run off with it. They seem to hold on to it much longer, giving me much more time to set the hook. Typically I rig them on a 2/0 Gamagatsu wide gap hook with a 1/4 oz tungsten sinker which I hold in place with a small rubber bobber stop I also get from Bass Pro. These allow the weight to act like it is pegged, but when you set the hook they slide up the line a few feet so the bass can't throw the hook. My hook up ratio is almost 100% with the Kreature. That's a real confidence booster! Yes...they are more expensive than most and they tend to tear up more easily then some, but I can catch two or three nice fish with each bait. How many other brand of soft plastics can you virtually guarantee 15 to 20 bass on a bag of 7 lures? The results speak for themselves. April 19, 2006
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rebel12 Great Lure I used this lure for the first time a couple days ago and it was awesome. I was jigging for river smallmouth. I caught around 13 smallmouth with the first lure. It did fall apart after taking some serious abuse, but I just slipped another one on and kept going. Great lure. April 19, 2013

Rated 4 out of 5 by DForman Great Bass Bait This is great bass bait but I was bothered that it was back ordered and I had to pay separate shipping. August 6, 2012

Details:I like to fish senkos wacky in shallow water weightless how do the creatures compare in that aspect?
A:only way I use it is without a sinker and it works great
A:The kreatures are a little bit heavier than the senkos so they cast farther than the senkos and they have a great falling affect when thrown weightless and weedless.
A:like it says in the caption above it is 4"s and weights a little more then a 5" senko

A:Sure it is. I wouldn't take it over a wacky rigged senko in shallow water, however. My best success with this bait has been Texas-rigged with 5/16 oz. weight in shallow water or on a lead, FB head jig in deep water.

A:Yes it is... I sometimes add a 1/16th sinker to get it to sink a little faster but casting it weightless is no problem.
