Gary Yamamoto Kreature
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.

Great Bass Bait
This is great bass bait but I was bothered that it was back ordered and I had to pay separate shipping.

Just like all of gary yamamotos baits this just seems to out produce other creature baits on the market.

Versatile and unique
I was impressed with the spider grub from Yamamoto so I decided to give this a shot.
On a foot ball jig 1/4 oz, this plastic really lands fish. Lots of action on the drop but you can swim them as well.
I've had great luck with the black with red flake.
However, all Yamamoto plastics have no durability and will be destroyed after 1 or 2 aggressive fish.
Won't stop me from getting them in the future.
