Hope this worksApril 5, 2018 at 1:03 am #7905
Hey Mick, cool vid. Do you have a favourite colour you like to use? I always prefer natural looking colours but I see guys using weird colours all the time. Does colour really make a difference?April 5, 2018 at 1:53 am #7908
Hi Jim, I probably catch more fish on natural colours like blue and green but I generally have them tied on most of the time. I have also cought plenty on pinks and orange as well as shiny pearl finishes. Some days a certin colour can get more bites but most of the time I reckon the action of the trailer, weight, profile and where its sitting in the water coloum are much more important than colour. Having said that I do like a bit of lumo, especially in water depper than 20/30m.
Inchiku is very underutilised in Australia, the Kiwis have been doing it for yearsApril 9, 2018 at 12:18 pm #8217
I’ve only used knife style jigs for Kingfish. Is a Inkichu a brand name or a style of lure?
What do you use Mick?April 10, 2018 at 2:03 pm #8450
Inchiku is a sytle of jig, its been usedin Asia for years, the kiwis have been getting big Snapper for ages but in Austraila we only just starting to realise their potential.
Basicly they are a Shaped and painted lead weight with a soft squid trailer that hosuses the hooks.
There are heaps of brands out there, Shimano and Daiwa both make them as well as many other brands. I must also confess I have a small online tackle shop called Reflex Tackle, we have a small range of jigs including some Inchiku.
The key with Inchiku is tho fish them slow, the trailing squid will dance and sway with the current and entice the bite. Keep them down in the bottom few meters of water will get the job done most of the time bu the next Mackrel or Tuna to grab one on the way in wont be the first.
Check out the vid in the first post and you will see what I mean about working them slow.
