Pelagic Lure Crash Course for Fishing Tackle

So you’ve just been invited to go on a tropical fishing trip to go off-shore fishing for a variety of pelagic species and have only a few days to get ready. What do you do? What do you need to bring to make this a fun, safe, and successful trip? If you are lucky enough to find yourself in this position it is always good to check directly with the Captain or lodge you will be fishing with to get the low-down on the off-shore fishing tackle you will be using.

From a fishing perspective, the easiest of the necessities to bring along with you, which can make or break your trip, is your lures. It would be best to simplify your choices into two categories of off-shore fishing tackle, therefore let’s use trolling and then casting as our focus here.

Yo-Zuri offers the most diverse and comprehensive line of off-shore tackle and lures to suit all your pelagic fishing needs. One of the more renowned off-shore lures is the Sashimi Bonita, which is rated as one of the top trolling lures of all time for any pelagic species worldwide. An example of two of the most popular casting styles is the Sashimi Bull Popper & Sashimi Slider which are all you need to fish for anything from tuna to roosterfish.

The Sashimi Popper is an excellent topwater lure for Tuna, Roosterfish or even Cubera Snapper as it throws a lot of water, is very buoyant, and is built of a durable polymer. In fact, a 208 pound Yellowfin Tuna was caught on this lure in Panama. These lures come in two sizes in order to match the size of the bait your target fish are feeding on.

The Sashimi Slider is another pelagic species killer since it can be cast or trolled. It has caught everything from Dorado to Sailfish. Due to its perfect size, weight, and balance it is a favorite among the best Captains in the world and can be deadly when used correctly. It is very simple to work this lure properly. You must use the total length of your rod in long, slow, sweeping motions to get bit consistently. This allows the Sashimi Slider to “slide” and fall through the water looking like an escaping meal. Let the weight of the lure work for you by giving it time to fall; be patient and you will get bit!

Even Yellowtail fishermen on the west coast of the US have been annihilating big tails on the surface when fished like surface iron. For this action you must reel in on a fast, consistent basis and the fish will chase it down and attack it hard. These innovative and very productive lures are an integral part of all your off-shore fishing tackle needs.

The Sashimi series of off-shore lures has two international patents applied to it, the first being its unique color changing characteristics which allows these lures to change colors depending on action and point of view. The second patent is the ribbed bodies of the lures which create multiple vibrations in the water column designed to imitate a frenzied baitfish.

As you know, in the Ocean, scared or injured bait are called a meal to something else bigger.

Remember to “Fish The Best”!
