MATZUO AMERICA UNVEILS FOUR NEW FISHING INNOVATIONS AT ICAST 2016

NEW PRODUCTS FOR 2016

Introducing the NEW Surassha! The Surassha, which is Japanese for Slasher, is the latest in a line of hot-­‐selling hard baits featuring Matzuo America’s signature “bloody red” flared gills. This new top water bait includes professionally engineered chambers that create a unique knock and ping sound that the fish have never heard before. The flared-gill design makes the Surassha spit and splash like no other bait on the market.

The NEW Double Shockwave Spinner adds an additional polished brass blade to the existing (and extremely successful) Shockwave Spinner for twice the flash, twice the vibration, and overall more fish.

The NEW Monsuta Spinner is a new double-bladed spinner for muskie and pike. It combines dual magnum Indiana brass blades, with a “triple threat teaser” tail comprised of natural bucktail, flashabou and marabou for a unique and irresistibly pulsating tail action.

The NEW Doragon Minnow is the "dragon" of the water that will slay those monster fish. This new bait features a 5-section, 4-jointed body for a realistic, undulating swimming action. The Doragon Minnow sinks at rest so you can troll it or cranked it at any depth. Two sizes and 8 hyper-realistic color patterns for whatever water you're fishing in.

For 2016, the Marianne Huskey Signature Series Kinchou Minnow has 2 brand new colors. Check out the new Anti-Freeze and New Penny. Both are ready to Shake, Rattle and Go!

The NEW Marianne Huskey Signature Series Big Blade Sickle Walleye Rigs combine a high quality hammered brass Colorado blade along with our proven Matzuo Sickle® hooks. The oversized blades provide a tremendous thump and flash to call fish in while the Matzuo Sickle® hooks will grab hold of any fish that bites!

Matzuo is well known for quality hooks, and the NEW Angle Grip XX-Strong Treble carries on that tradition. Designed to hold on to those really hard fighting fish, the unique angle keeps 'em on tight. This hook is also a great replacement hook for all hard baits.
