The Imakatsu I-Arrow 65sp is a really interesting finesse hard lure, and one of the hottest finesse jerkbaits from the JDM market. Shaped similar to a standard jerkbait, it has additional fins on the bottom and lacks a lip, both of which help to keep the trajectory straight when it’s in motion. While still flashy and erratic, it’s less exaggerated than a traditional jerkbait. It can be fished with quick snaps of the wrist, a stop and go retrieve, or drifted in moving water. The I-Arrow 65sp suspends horizontally just below the surface of the water.
While there are a lot of small jerkbaits on the market, we think this one is truly a “finesse” jerkbait.
This lure has a single treble centered to the lure and connected by a swivel for an increased hookup, and decrease shakes offs. All of our currently in-stock models are equipped with the “Dazzler” tinsel tail to help draw bites from finicky fish by adding a little extra flash to your presentation. If you’re fishing really pressured waters check out the color “Shirahio”, it’s a clear body lure with subtle black dots and a splash of UV. Pair this suspending lure to a 4-6lb fluorocarbon line using a loop knot or small snap and hang on tight.
