Marukyu Isome, or Power Isome (same thing) is an artificial sandworm imitation originating from Japan. These and other artificial baits are sometimes referred to as ‘fake baits’. Marukyu’s Isome is not just another lure. Isome is constructed from a biodegradable material that is saturated with a fish-attracting mix of amino acids. Fish can be observed to eat Marukyu Isome, unlike a plastic lure that requires action to fool a fish. Power Isome has been largely adopted by European LRF anglers in targeting a wide range of fish species using a number of methods. Hopefully, what follows will give you inspiration in catching fish on Isome worms.
I’ve somehow beautifully avoided Weevers until now. But very pleased to tick off the Lesser Weever on this year’s species list. Numero 20 in fact. Lure was an XL Marukyu Isome fished on a 10g jighead on the drift.
Watch out youngsters (and not so youngsters) – these are poisonous! Not worthy of abuse, but watch yourselves and go careful.
I’ve said it before but worth repeating, I think light rock fishing gear is perfect for fun fishing on your summer holidays.
Myself and the good lady headed off to Rhodes in Greece for a week and of course I packed some LRF equipment – mainly Reins lures and a pack of Isome. More
Perhaps not the most economical fish of the year. After not finding the Bass this weekend all I had to show for £35 of diesel was 5 Sand Smelt. Although another lure caught species for the 2013 tally.
