1/4 oz is good. 1/2 oz if itโ€™s windy. Bone is hard to beat.

I am with you 100%. I also have alewife and blue fire and always go back to Japanese shad. Although I like Blue fire as well.

I am struggling with the set up for the 1/4 ounce bait. It is hard to throw on a bait caster. I am throwing on a spinning rod on 20 lb braid and it works ok.

If you are struggling to throw it on a bait cast setup I would suggest you have the wrong rod & reel. I can throw the 1/4 oz YM 30 yards on 15# mono.

Use this rod:

Use this reel with 15# mono:

I found an old all star popping rod that fit the bill perfectly. Thanks for all the help.

I have had a 1/4 oz YM in Japanese Shad tied on for about 6 years now lol. That's the only one I throw, although I have 4 more new in package 1/4 bone sitting in the garage for some reason.


Thats my money fish
