ICAST 2013 Coverage


Jackall Introduces Five New Lures at ICAST

 

Date: 7/12/13
Location: Las Vegas, NV
Admission: Buyers & Press Only
Manufacturer: Jackall
Reviewer: Zander








Introduction:
This is the first ICAST show that Jackall was represented by the Shimano team and under the new collaboration the brand introduced five new lures that encompassed everything from big baits to blades.

 


Pro Angler Cody Meyer shows us the new baits starting with the Mikey 140 Swimbait and describes how it doesn't hang up easily thanks to the new lip design

 

Kawashi Mikey 140 Swimbait – Kicking things off is a new swimbait featuring Jackall’s unique curved lip design, the new Kawashi Mikey 140 swimbaits is designed to enable anglers to crank it deep while deflecting cover and potentials snags. Pro Angler Cody Meyer enthusiastically described just how well this swimbait deflects off structure without getting snagged. Offered in six colors including ayu, trout, pink piraruku, black piraruku, jungle and ghost pearl gill, the Kawashi Mikey 140 has an enhanced three-piece jointed body design for life-like swimming action, and the feather hooks  are intended to act as an additional fish attractant.

 


The Jockie Topwater Minnow features a diamond shaped lip that is designed to help it dive perfectly straight

Jockie 120 Topwater Minnow – Combining topwater design with jerkbait action, the new Jackall Jockie 120 was created by Kazuto Yamaki and is offered in six colors – HL aurora black, chartreuse shad, ghost minnow, SG threadfin shad, SS shad and bluegill. This top-water bait is designed like a jerk bait with a diamond shaped lip that allows it to dive straight with a quick turn of your reel, plus its bottom cup makes a popping sound when the lure hits the water. The Jockie 120’s rear moving weight system means long casting distances for a pop, dive and roll action, plus a unique inner scale molding design provides for additional fish-attracting underwater flash.

 


The Super Eruption is a finesse spinnerbait that is designed to put out a lot of vibration

 

Super Eruption Spinnerbait – Jackall brings its most advanced spinnerbait to the U.S. and Canada anglers with the new Super Eruption. They will be available in both 3/8- and 1/2-ounce sizes, and will be offered in eight colors – noike green back, wakasagi, black back chartreuse, white, bluegill, pearl chartreuse, peanut craw and tidal craw. Featuring a reverse tear drop blade that spins immediately when hits the water, the Super Eruption spinnerbaits are constructed with 0.8mm SUS304 stainless steel wire for better transmission of vibrations, while the contrasting front and back colors on the blades help attract bass in stained water conditions.

 


The Spade Jig has a crimped skirt that makes it flare out better

 

Spade Jig T.G. – In addition to these reaction baits Jackall also introduced a new tungsten jig. Available in both 3/8- and 1/2-ounce sizes, the jig features a unique pre-bent silicon skirt that perfectly imitates the legs of crawfish thanks to the crimped design that almost looks as if the jig was shocked with electricity. With a weed guard to minimize snags so it can be fished in light cover, along with a spade shaped design to keep it standing, the Spade Jig T.G. comes in eight colors - sniper pink purple, black/blue, black/purple, green pumpkin chartreuse, amber craw, watermelon candy, green pumpkin candy and grass shrimp.

 


The Darts Hog can be drop shot or used as a trailer

 

Darts Hog Softbait – The ‘secret weapon’ among big bass anglers in Japan crosses the Pacific with the introduction of the Jackall Darts Hog softbait. The Darts Hog will be made available in the U.S. and Canada and the four-inch crawdad imitation plastic is constructed with high floating material that keeps the tail upright, plus the phantom color tail can be split for added versatility. Offered in eight colors – watermelon/pepper orange tail, green pumpkin pepper, crawdad, black blue flake/chartreuse trail, cola red flake/blood tail, green pumpkin/gold chartreuse tail, black blue flake/purple tail, and pearl white clear chartreuse. This softbait is also an ideal trailer for the new Spade Jig T.G and should be deadly when drop shot.  

 


Thanks to Cody for showing us the new designs from Jackall

 

Conclusion: Jackall has built up a reputation for quality baits with detailed designs and each of the new lures seem to continue that tradition. While price points are still being finalized for the U.S. market the baits will start shipping to dealers in just a few weeks and should be available for purchase in the August timeframe.
