Ocea Spouter Lures
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 the lure 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 wind 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 91 grams respectively — and five colours ranging from clear through to multi-shaded.
