Gamakatsu Gika Rig

The Gamakatsu Gika rig is a remarkable technique for catching largemouth and smallmouth bass across North America.

Gamakatsu Gika Rig

Gika Rigs use an off-set shank worm hook with an elongated drop shot weight attached directly to the eye via a solid ring. The drop shot weight features a snap that allows anglers to quickly change the size of the weight when the situation calls for it and is painted black for stealthy presentations. The weight size is permanently stamped into the side of each weight making it easy to identify when it’s time to make a change. Changing weights controls the depth and drop speed of the bait adding to the rig’s versatility. The position of the weight allows anglers to “feel” the bottom, detecting transitions in composition and helping find fish-holding structures. Another advantage is its natural swimming and dropping motion. The solid ring allows the plastic bait to float freely and rotate from side to side as it descends. It slips through vegetation with ease and grabs the attention of bass. The Gika Rig offers a different presentation than most other anglers’ baits, and it might be the edge needed to put more fish in the boat, especially in lakes with extra angling pressure. A wide variety of soft plastic baits perform superbly on Gika Rigs. Size: 2/0 (1/8, 3/16); 3/0 (3/16, 1/4); 4/0 (1/4, 3/8). MSRP: $5.82-$6.60/Package of two, including weights.
