Western Outdoor NewsPublished: Sep 22, 2017

Launches all-new style of wire bait


Yo-Zuri is proud to announce the launch of a brand new style of wire bait, the likes of which have never been seen before! It’s called the Knuckle Bait, and it is truly one-of-a-kind. Developed and tested for nearly three years, the Knuckle Bait is now ready to hit the American market and its waters for the first time.

What gives the Knuckle Bait its name comes from the ball which is attached to the wire, in a similar position to a spinnerbait blade. But this is no ordinary wire bait. The Knuckle Bait’s action is what makes it so unique. There are two styles of ball that are available; a 3D Prism pattern and a painted Sound Ball pattern. When this bait is retrieved, the ball wobbles in an erratic action, much like a knuckleball thrown from the pitchers’ mound.

The Knuckle Bait weighs 1/2-ounce and is remarkably aerodynamic which means it can be cast tremendous distances. It’s also highly versatile as it can be fished by itself or along with a swimbait or creature bait trailer. It can also be fished in a variety of ways: Reel quickly and keep it on top, and the Knuckle Bait becomes a wake bait. “Slow roll” it along the bottom and pull it through vegetation, the Knuckle Bait is surprisingly weedless! It also stands upright on the bottom when the retrieve is stopped, allowing anglers to fish it with a flutter-fall technique.

The Knuckle Bait comes in two different finishes: 3D prism and painted. Anglers can choose from 7 different colors. Painted finishes include Chartreuse, Red Crawfish, and Pearl Shad. The 3D Prism finishes are Golden Shiner, Gizzard Shad, Shad, and Tennessee Shad.
