Yamamoto Unveils 5-inch Shad Shape Worm

Irving, TX – Yamamoto Baits is excited to announce the debut of the brand-new 5” Shad Shape Worm. This 5” offering puts a twist on the ever popular 4” Shad Shape Worm, thanks in large part to Yamamoto’s new Mega Floater Formula.

“One of my all-time favorite dropshot baits is the existing 4-inch Shad Shape Worm,” says Yamamoto pro Jacob Powroznik. “The profile is perfect to get maximum action on a dropshot. This new 5-inch version is the same, just in a bigger offering. It’s even more versatile because it’s made from our custom floating formula. This allows it to do some really cool things.”

The 5” Shad Shape Worm is available in 18 fish-catching colors. “This bait is awesome on the Great Lakes where you need a bigger dropshot, and the floating formula makes it stand out every time,” says the Elite Series pro. “For the same reason, it’s also really good as a finesse Carolina rig bait. And perhaps, the best use for it might be on the back of a scrounger head. It really comes alive in the water.”

For almost 40 years, Yamamoto Baits have proven themselves to be a leading brand for every level of angler – from professional to entry-level. For more info on the Yamamoto Baits line of products, visit their website HERE, or find them on Facebook and other social media avenues.
