Mijinko means “water flea” in Japanese, and the Jackson Mijinko embodies its namesake with its micro size and irresistible action. With its dual tungsten weights, the Mijinko offers excellent casting distance and a slow sink rate that allows anglers to target the upper layers of the water column, even at a slow retrieve. With its tie point behind the weighted head, a simple retrieve makes Mijinko swim with an S-shaped action that predatory fish hone in on. Gentle upward twitches of the rod tip give Mijinko a sporadic hopping action, just like a water flea, and this motion will often trigger aggressive bites. The dual assist hooks offer an excellent hookup ratio while making it difficult for fish to shake the hooks after the hookset. Designed for targeting light game saltwater species such as rockfish and mackerel, Mijinko is also effective when targeting freshwater trout, crappie, and sunfish.
