"I wanted a lure to mimic a bluegill or a shad, but I wanted a fish profile with a bigger belly. It needed to be beefy enough to hold a hook or jig" - says Elite Angler Brett Hite, who finished 2nd this year at Winyah Bay primarily fishing the Zako. "Additionally, Brett wanted to keep the tail action tight, similar to an actual baitfish, so Gary Yamamoto designed the tail with accordion - style cuts and a flanged tail which keeps the action minimal. Hookset ratios are also improved as the tail folds in on itself when the fish bite. Another key feature of the Zako which is exceptionally useful when rigging it as a flip bait is the center line on the top of the bait - you'll always know you're rigging it dead center and that means the Zako will always run true."
It starts with an idea, and a dream. On December 21, 1976, Gary Yamamoto moved his family to Page, Arizona and purchased a campground. In 1983, Gary Yamamoto® Custom Baits was formed. If you know Gary Yamamoto, you know his insatiable love for the sport of fishing is matched only by his obsession with producing the highest quality soft-plastic fishing lures on the market today. Every bait is inspected by hand. What doesn't pass inspection is recycled and re-used. Every year, 2.5 million baits are shipped world-wide.
