The DEPS Spiral Minnow redefines the concept of a “wake bait.” This noisy prop bait, shaped like a minnow, has an uncanny ability to get fickle bass to attack. Just like its older brother the Buzzjet, this wake bait is very effective on the surface or just beneath it. The flatter sides produce a sharper and quicker wobble and roll when retrieved, giving the savvy angler two options waking options depending on the mood of the fish. Most wake baits are only effective when retrieved slowly, but the Spiral Minnow also excels with medium and fast retrieves. The prop continuously causes a ruckus with a bubble trail and a fish calling clanking sound. It sports three Owner hooks so your bass not only gets hooked, it stays hooked. Different conditions call for different baits. Find out for yourself why the Spiral Minnow has quickly become one of Japan`s top wake baits.

As its name suggests, the Pulsecod sends out recurrent rhythmic beats, waves and vibrations as the internal spring weight knocks against the plastic body, even at rest. This one of a kind action is truly a first in the world or artificial lures as Deps of Kyoto, Japan has found a way to convince even the wariest fish to eat even when they are finicky and not in a feeding mood. The Pulsecod performs best on 14- to 16-lb. fluorocarbon, and features an extra wide flat cupped mouth which allows it to catch more water and create a distinctive boiling sound when popped. However, this bait really shines when left to rest after three quick pops of the rod. Left at rest, the head turns into a bobble head and continues to bounce for up to 10 seconds, emitting a tantalizing sound and vibrations without any effort from the angler. The Pulsecod is 80 mm long and weighs just over 1/2oz (16g). It will be offered in six lifelike colors for the U.S.A market and will retail for $25.99
