Morizo Shimizu is painfully aware of the difference a lure’s performance will make when a tournament takes place in the shallows. The WH-3 is the tool he turns to for its power to attract. Shimizu has spent a lot of time pulling in fish in a variety of fields in the US and Japan, refining the WH-3 into a powerful fish magnet that induces bites just by winding. It can submerge 3 feet underwater, maneuver shallow areas and avoid obstacles with ease. Even when it runs without touching the bottom, it magnets the fish and induces bites. Keeping the WH-5 tradition alive, the WH-3 is the ultimate in shallow crankbaits.
- Three-dimensional hyper lip design: The 3-D hyper lip design successfully grabs the water firmly, combining wobbling and rolling action at a high level. Biting can be induced with line winding and not merely with the two-dimensional action of bottom bumping. The design brings out the lure’s ability to slide over hard cover like logs and riprap.
- Body design: The hyper lip has the outstanding ability to slip through obstacles and is designed to resist water during retrieve, avoid structures, resist air when casting, and achieve distance even without a weight transfer system.
- Low-gravity weights: By increasing the internal chamber capacity, we succeeded in boosting its weight. This has translated into better castability, and sharper but stable action.
- Hook Balance: Decreasing the size of the front hook but increasing the one in the back, and minimizing movement of the front hook during action allows for easy hooking but a difficult release. Other advantages include less snagging and a higher probability of hooking fish.
