Zappu Inchi Wacky Head from Bass East on Vimeo.
The Japanese anglers are a very studious bunch. They are always working on new and creative techniques. The drop shotting technique that the Japanese introduced to America several years back has become a household term in bass fishing recently, and now the Japanese have created a new technique called “INCHI WACKY” or Jig Head Wacky. This technique has taken Japan by storm over the past 12 months and for good reason. Two Japanese Bass Pros, Takuma Hata of Zappu Inc. and Toshiro Ono of Jackall Inc. pioneered the craze.
As the name suggests, it’s a very straightforward rig and easy to put into practice.
Benefits of the Rig
1. More distance on every cast.
2. Fish deeper areas more effectively.
3. The bait falls quicker.
4. Easier to keep in contact with the bottom.
5. Most importantly it creates a wicked irregular action that looks exactly like a real worm squirming in the water.
