Imakatsu Gekiasa 2 Alive Roller/Foot Magic

Post by JBcrankaddict » Mon Mar 04, 2019 10:40 am

I know we have a few Imakatsu fans on the board, anyone ever thrown these jerkbaits? Let me know your opinion on these if you have any experience with them. Just ordered a couple Alive Rollers in Green Smelt(hopefully they were really in stock) and was curious on true depth and action when ripped(how erratic?). Videos show the rolling action on straight retrieve, and the sweet rolling action as the bait floats, by not much video of actually twitching the bait. They look great and I am hoping they work well in our shallow clear water situations. Thanks!

I’ll definitely post up some thoughts when they get here. That action on the float is different, and is something that I hope will make some followers commit to it. Have lots of baits that wobble/shimmy while they sink, but not so much for the floaters.

I honestly have a feeling this pattern would slay the pike. 8-)

Its so unique I had to buy one. Gonna try to catch a few redfish on it, and like pike they are pretty aggressive, so I’m hoping it will crush them. We will see...
