Waxwing by Shimano 2010 ICast Tradeshow HARDBAIT WINNER!
This is a lure that will need to be part of every saltwater
fishermans arsenal. Read below for details about the use of the
Shimano Waxwing lure.
Heres a good one gang! The Waxwing by Shimano is truly an
innovative lure, the likes of which has never been seen before.
Patterned after SURFACE IRON FISHING, a Southern California
tradition, the Waxwing is a cast and retrieve lure that will work
on any saltwater species that feeds on baitfish on the surface. In
Southern California that means Yellowtail, Calico Bass, Tuna, and
more. In other areas that could mean Striped Bass, Bluefish, Jacks,
and literally any fish that feeds on baitfish near the surface.
The Shimano Waxwing took 4 years of development and testing to get
the action, construction, and colors perfect. They have done an
absolutely wonderful job creating a new lure for us fishing
fanatics to play with.
Fishing the Waxwing is very addictive and you will greatly enjoy
fishing with it. The most effective way to fish the Waxwing is to
cast it out and begin a relatively quick retrieve. Speed will vary
depending upon conditions but a moderate to quick retrieve is a
good way to begin. The bait will dart from side to side in a
distinct S pattern.
This is generally all that is required to draw a bite. When a fish
does hit the lure, it is best not to try to set the hook, but
rather wind through the bite. This really means when you get a
bite, keep turning the handle accelerating slightly until the fish
is solidly hooked. Then the fun begins.
Sometimes fish will follow the lure but be a bit reluctant to
strike. When this occurs either slow or stop the retrieve (dead
stick the lure) and see if the fish will pounce on it. Sometimes an
occasional burst of speed will cause the Waxwing to kick outside of
the pattern causing the fish to strike.
This can be achieved by retrieving the Waxwing steadily and then
every few turns of the handle accelerating the retrieve violently
on one down stroke. This will shoot the jig out to one side.
The Shimano Waxwing comes in a huge variety of colors for use in
any situation. In Southern California the mint, sardine, and sand
eel colors seem to be the most effective. You may find other colors
effective in your area.
Lastly, the tackle that should be used with the Waxwing includes
Power Pro braided line, a Shimano Curado 300 EJ reel, and the
appropriate Shimano Terez Waxwing rod. These components were
developed to get the most out of your Shimano Waxwing.
Features: Shimano Waxwing is the next generation of Sub-Surface
swimming jigs for saltwater fisherman. Simply cast the jig and
point your rod tip straight towards the jig, then start reeling.
This jig swims side-to-side in a zigzag motion with an irregular
kicking action which triggers the fish to strike.
