Introduction: With the scores of baits we have sitting in our bins, 2005 has been unofficially declared the Year of the Crank here at TackleTour Headquarters. Next up in our review list is a rather unique looking lure from one of the least talked about but quietly popular lure manufacturers to make a splash here in the United States from overseas, Jackall Lures. We caught wind that one of their new baits, the Aragon, was making waves, so we went out and acquired some of our own to bring to you, the story of a very original and unique bait.
Started by Japanese lure designer Seiji Kato and tournament angler Ty Ono in 1999, Jackall Lures is a Japanese-based manufacturer known for innovative and highly sought-after designs. From the first product, the three inch cross-tail shad, to the very latest – quality, innovation, and helping anglers catch more fish are the top priorities. Seiji Kato’s goal of creating lures with a more natural action, material, and undulation has been realized in his Jackall designs.
Seijo Kato and the Jackall team utilize hundreds of prototypes over the course of multiple years with each new lure creation. Using the latest engineering technologies, Jackall lures are some of the most technologically advanced options available today. Body shape, balance, hook placement, sound, and so much more go into each lure design to create the perfect performance on the water.
