NOW THIS IS A SURFACE LURE LIKE NO OTHER. THE SHIMANO OCEA SPOUTER LOOKS PRETTY MUCH LIKE YOUR STANDARD CUP FACED SURFACE POPPER, BUT AN INTERNAL CHAMBER BEHIND THE FACE SQUIRTS A ROOSTER TAIL OF SPRAY OUT BEHIND THE LURE’S HEAD AS IT IS SWEPT THROUGH THE WATER. THE PRINCIPLE IS NOT UNLIKE THE FRONT OF A JET ENGINE ON A PLANE, BEING NARROW IN THE FRONT AND THEN WIDENING INTERNALLY.
The internal chamber also aerates the water, creating even more whitewater and commotion than a standard cup faced popper.
With a low down tow point, it is also a lot easier to work than a conventional cup-faced popper and therefore gives lots more ‘pop’ for far less effort. With the correct amount of rod movement, it can also be made to jerk and dive, not unlike a stickbait.
Heavy-duty in-line single hooks rigged on 150lb breaking strain split rings demonstrate that this lure is all about big fish business. It’s available in two sizes — 120 and 150mm, with casting weights of 52 and 94 grams respectively— and five colours ranging from clear through to multi-shaded.
