These Inchiku are dynamite on snapper kingfish, gurnard and kawhai, they are a great alternative to soft plastic baits and come in weights ranging between 15g, and 130g. The inchiku consists of a weighted head with 1 or 2 assist hooks tied either out the top or bottom of the jig, covered with an octopus skirt.
