Rigging Tip - The eyes on Yamashita skirts are luminous (glow in the dark). When fishing at first light or dusk, hold skirted lures under a flashlight or decklight for a short period of time before deploying. This will cause the eyes to glow, often times inducing vicious strikes during these magic hours.

Yamashita Ikanago Skirts

Made by Yamashita, the manufacturer of the popular "Golden Bait" line of Octopus skirts, Ikanago skirts have a different shape than Octopus type skirts. They are more elongated with a pencil shape. This shape is similar to the tiny baits that small tuna and mackerel sometimes feed on. We all know how tough it is to get fish to bite when they are focused (feeding) on small forage. Larger lures won't cut it. Ikanago skirts are the perfect baits for these situations. Rigged with a small sliding sinker inside and a single small hook, Ikanago skirts are great for catching small live baits such as skipjack, yellowfin, or mackerel. Ikanago Skirts are also ideal for bottom rigs. Try them for flounder, small snapper, or rockfish.

Malolo Blue Water Tackle currently stocks these skirts in Yamashita sizes 1.5, 2.0 and 3.5.

When ordering, please specify size and color. Example - a 1.75" skirt in color Yako would be ordered as Ikanago 1.5-Yako.

Stock # Size Package / Qty Price
Ikanago 1.5 1.75" 7 pack $4.89
Ikanago 2.0 2.5" 6 pack $4.99
Ikanago 3.5 4.25" 5 pack $5.99

Naugahyde Skirt Material

Hawaii is generally accepted as the birthplace of the resin-made big game trolling lure. For around forty years, Hawaiian lure makers have been perfecting this craft. Back when it all began, lure makers would use feathers, nylon "grass" fibers, and even material from shower curtains to dress their lure creations. After much experimentation, it was found that the same Naugahyde that was used to upholster your dad's '57 Chevy and '50s diners was the hot ticket for big game lures as well. Flashy with lots of sparkle and made in gaudy colors that fish can't resist, the stuff is tough and resilient as well. In addition, it was later discovered that the rough backside of Naugahyde seems to trap air bubbles well and creates a terrific bubble stream behind the lure. Because of these attributes, Naugahyde is still used by some of Hawaii's, and the world's, top big game boats. MBWT stocks genuine Naugahyde in nine different colors. Available either pre-cut ready to go or in sheets for the do-it-yourselfer. Please specify stock number and color code when ordering.
