DAMIKI Fishing Tackle: Pandla Jig Head and Anchovy Shad

DAMIKI Fishing Tackle: Pandla Jig Head and Anchovy Shad

Daniel Kim of Valencia, California, is the director of sales and marketing for DAMIKI Fishing Tackle, and in an Oct. 16 e-mail, he said that some Midwest finesse anglers might be interested in working with Damiki's new 1/16-ounce Pandla Jig that is affixed to DAMIKI's Anchovy Shad. He described it as a diminutive swimbait rig for finesse anglers.

The streamlined head of the Pandla is unpainted. There is a round cavity on each side of the head where anglers can affix 3-D holographic eyes. It is poured around a 4/0 Viper hook, which might too large for most Midwest finesse anglers to wield, but Kim says that we should give it and the Anchoy Shad a whirl.

Kim emphasized its effectiveness by remarking that Hank Cherry of Maiden, North Carolina, used the Anchovy Shad to help him win the Bassmaster Elite Series Toyota All-Star Week and Evan Williams Bourbon Championship on Sept. 28, 2013, at Muskegon, Michigan.  Cherry is on DAMIKI's pro staff, and he became captivated with the Anchovy Shad during its field-testing phase.


As it can be seen in the photograph above, the four-inch Anchovy Shad is graced with a slim, tapering body and a paddle tail. The tail generates a significant thumping action that radiates up the bait's torso, causing it to quiver provocatively. It torso and tail is enhanced with a scale pattern, and affixed to its head are a pair to three-dimensional eyes.


It is available in eight colors: Pro Blue, Pro Green, Green Pumpkin Black, White Silver Flake, Baby Bass, Pearl White, White Silver, and Smoke Black Silver. A package eight can be purchased for $6.99 at some retailers.

A package of five 1/16-ounce Pandla jig can be purchased for $4.99.
