As the name indicates, the MAKIPPA is a new type of casting blade jig that simply needs to be retrieved to be effective. In saltwater fishing, casting jigs are a mainstay lure due to their flight distance and their effectiveness against many types of fish, but it takes a lot of practice and experience to use them properly, as it can be difficult to perform the desired action or keep to the desired range. The MAKIPPA has been thoroughly tuned to minimize those challenging aspects of use and create a lure that anyone can easily handle. The tail features a blade that attracts fish extremely well with a simple retrieve and incorporates the BLADE HOOK SYSTEM (PAT.) that reliably hooks up blade bites without impeding the rotation of the blade. The calculated body balance and placement of parts avoids body rotations and allows for stable swimming and flashing that attracts targets.
If you commence your retrieve immediately after splashdown it will cover the surface range. If you let it sink, then you can cover the mid-range or bottom according to where your targets are, thanks to the MAKIPPA’s excellent range-keeping ability.
MAKIPPA comes equipped with a tinsel assist hook which is effective against many types of fish, and the customization eye on the belly allows you to attach double or triple hooks according to your preference. Putting a hook on the customization eye is particularly effective against fish attacking from underneath the lure. The target fish are varied, and include seabass, flounder, magochi, amberjack, Japanese Spanish mackerel, greater amberjack, Japanese horse mackerel, mackerel, largehead hairtail, red sea bream, and black sea bream. If you make the MAKIPPA a part of your saltwater fishing arsenal, it will surely perform for you in many situations and entice many species of fish.
