Gary Yamamoto Kreature
Sale starting at:
Clearance starting at:
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.

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.

This is an unusual review for me......havn't caught a fish on it in Florida or Maryland.
Been using the black/blue fleck with a 2/0 gammy EWG and pegged sinker. Looks so good in the water that I'm ready to grab it and eat it!
Been a big Gary fan, so I'll keep trying this thing a little more than I have been and see if I can change things.

I swim these kreatures on a weighted swimbait hook. Or fish it like a senko on the swimbait hook.They never fail.

Lure works great or even better then a tube jig alternate. Rig any way & you will catch smallies off the bottom. I use a standard 2/0 long hook carolina rigged does great for drifting.
*Only issue is the bait is rather soft and only good for catching 5 or so bass. I would give 5 stars if bait was a little tougher and held-up longer.
