One of the most effective and unique bait finesse-sized lures to come from Japan in recent years, the Jackall Hamply is a hybrid hard body/soft tail minnow-shaped wakebait. Designed by renowned Japanese lure designer JK Kawashima, it is a nearly perfect baitfish imitator. At a slow retrieve, this lure will stay on the surface producing a subtle wake behind it while its soft tail gives it a slight roll and wiggle. When sped up the wakebait lip pulls the lure to just below the surface, the action tightness up resembling a jointed swimbait, and you start catching those followers that just wouldn’t commit to topwater.
This lure is one of the lightest swimbaits on the market and is perfect for running over shallow grasses, shell beds, and flats. We recommend using a 3lb to 5lb monofilament line on this one as well as keeping a small Phillips screwdriver in your tackle bag as each Jackall Hamply includes an extra replacement tail.
