This is the newest version of the 9" Opelu model. It is more of a traditional bullet shape with less taper compared to the other Opelu model that had been previously released. Tested and proven fish producer.
The Niiyama Lures Mackerel/Opelu is a life-like version of the extremely popular baitfish. These heads like as real as it can possibly get without actually being the real thing. Contains perfectly designed gills, fins, mouth, etc. The curvature and texture on these heads are straight up jaw dropping. Also contains amazing 3D eyes. This is the 9" skirt saddle sized version that is perfect for Mahi Mahi/Dolphin, Ono/Wahoo, Ahi/Tuna, and Billfish including Blue Marlin and Sailfish. The custom paint work on these heads in combination with their design makes them pure works of art.
Each head is belly weighted for perfect balancing. They can be trolled in any position but is particularly lethal from the stinger/center rigger position. Can also be trolled in any sea condition - flat or rough waters. Swimming action is a little side to side wiggle but is more of a straight runner, similar to your typical bullet shape.
This particular head has a dark turquoise/black "Natural" colored back that blends to a silver belly and black fins. Gorgeous custom color - Photos do not do it justice.
