the best ever GT lure by Shimano
December 20, 2017
Its cheap, it has superb action for GT casting! Although due to the material (plastic) it is not as durable as wooden lures. normally i only can use each for one trip. (provided there is a hit) but i will keep buying because it is so easy to work and so easy to catch GT with this!

Almost better than live bait!
February 25, 2017
Last July I purchased from TD the two 160 floating, the silver and green mackarel versions. The cut thru the air achieving great casting distance; you can fish them different styles, resisiting powerful strikes. Out of the box they are ready to fish; because of the good quality I did not have to change neither hooks or split rings.
ProsReady to fish out of the box Excellent quality components Can handle powerful toothy strikes Great hoop up ratio

Fished this lure last year on multiple trips offshore and it wasn't fair. These are great lures and work in every color. They have a tail weight in the bigger model so they cast very well and the action they have in the water is great. They swim better and are more affective with a long sweeping action of the rod instead of short quick twitches. Great construction and hooks on these lures. Built to last and I will be purchasing more in the future.

Awesome Lure
April 11, 2016
Great lure. Top notch construction, great action and best of all catches fish! I replaced the trebles on mine with 7/0 VMCs for shark fishing from the beach and they worked great! Nothing wrong with the trebles as they are high quality, you are just not allowed to fish for sharks using Trebles here in Florida.
Pros- Great quality. - Strong Hooks - Fish nail them.
Cons- You will shed a tear when you loose one.

Top Quality Lure, Shimano knows best!
June 15, 2015
This is a great top of the line lure. Quality is top knotch, hooks are very sharp and top quality. Everytime I fish the lure, I get a series of Pelagic fish wanting to kill this thing, cudas totally hate it and they attack relentlessly at it, I've also had snook and Tarpon hitting it hard. Tackledirect customer service is as top knotch as this lure, you can't go wrong with the TD team, they are very knowledgable and helpful, they will give you the tips and advise needed to get the best possible experience with whatever product you get. This was my first purchase with them and most definatly not my last!
ProsTop Quality, Versitile, easy to use, if fish are close by you have a guranteed hit! Trust me!
ConsBit pricey, but worth it!

These lures are hands down the best artificial I have had the fortune to use for catching tuna in the Gulf. Find a school of fish popping at the surface and simply cast it out and reel it in, it's that simple.

Got the 2 oz models in green mac and purple. The paint on these looks great. Versatile action too. It can walk the dog like a spook beautifully but it can be worked like a pencil popper too. Didn't give it 5 stars because it doesn't cast as far as I'd like it to. Have to see how the paint holds up over time too.

Amazing quality with price tag
April 5, 2014
first time i started purchasing poppers and stick baits for top water fishing,I've selected one piece from 7 different suppliers as i am purchasing online. when i received my order i realized that orca was the best in quality ,painting and reflections in addition to the hooks ....furthermore the same price tag with others. I think it is not allowed to mention the name of the suppliers or shots for the quality difference.

awesome lure.
January 29, 2014
This lure casts exceptionally well, and unusual for swimbaits and stickbaits constructed from plastic, this lure has a good solid feel and very stable flight akin to a more expensive wooden lure. when rigged with 2 pairs of single hooks, placed back to back, the hookup ratio for billfish like sailfish is high. these sharp eyed fish don't seem to be able to tell the difference between these lures and live bait. Also, the through wire construction would prompt me to use this lure when fishing for GTs in the tropics. can't wait to use it! exceptional value for such a good lure.
Prosgood casting very lifelike action natural looking lure

I can see where these Shimano 160JE Lures would be the 'ticket' for Tuna fishing off shore. I'm using them in the surf. The lures are very hardy, have tons of 'FLASH', have great action and cast long and far. Wait to get into a 'Blitz' using one of these. How about two 30" plus Blues on one plug. ~ <')\\\\\\\\\>< <')\\\\\\\\\\\>< 'That was a first for me!!! Great item!!
ProsDurable, well made, Super Flash, Great Action!!!
