The Niiyama Lures 9" Ballyhoo head must be seen to be believed. It is an ultra realistic imitation of a real Ballyhoo fish head, which is one of the more prominent baitfish eaten by many pelagic species. Contains perfectly designed gills, fins, mouth, etc. The curvature and texture on these heads are straight up jaw dropping. Also contains amazing rainbow-iridescent 3D eyes that look about as good as it gets. Comes in 9" skirt saddle sizes. This is the perfect size head for Ahi/Tuna, Marlin, and an absolute killer on Ono/Wahoo. His best high-trolling speed lure. The custom paint work on these heads in combination with their design makes them pure works of art. And absolutely killer in the water - fish clearly love them. I have plenty of proof that these work, so there's no doubt in my mind that you will catch loads of fish with them.
Each head is belly weighted for perfect balancing. Can 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 is a new natural/teal color back for the 9" Ballyhoo. It has a teal-natural back with a silver belly and black fins.
