The Amaebi was born from an ah ha moment of inspiration!
I had a couple of these painted heads laying around for awhile. The other day the guys from FV Musubi came by to talk story and grab a few lures. We ended up talking about an effective lure that looked like a Amaebi.
My question was why do you need that top skirt, why not just run Creamsickle as the outer skirt. That’s when my friend said “nah the outer skirt turns a little blue in the water”.
In that moment the light switch clicked!
My good friend Josh traps Amaebi and one evening we were eating fresh raw shrimp down at the docks. The juices from the shrimp that dripped into the water as I suck the good stuff out of its head would be a bio luminescent blue!
I pulled this skirt combo off the rack and said take one of those H1’s and I’m gonna take the other one.
We all were stoked and excited and you can bet we will be running this one hard this Ahi season!
H1 Premium Series is a 9" plus lure. This means it's bigger than a standard 9" lure but not as big as a 12" lure. It will take standard 9" skirts or it can fit 12” skirts
The benefits of this heavy bullet is that it draws bites from bigger fish of all species and is an especially great lure for chasing big Ahi.
It features 8 oz. of weight, hand dripped resin eyes and multi colored paint schemes.
Head length: 3" Total length: 10.5 inches
