When fishing for taibara from a boat or ship, a lure called a tai mackerel is used, which consists of a rubber tie attached to a weight.
This lure has a slightly different characteristic than other lures, and is used in a limited number of situations.
In this article, I will explain in detail how to choose the best tilefish lure for fishing.
If you don’t have one yet, please try to choose one from this list.
How to choose the best fishing Taibara (Sea Bream)
In order to choose the best fishing tilefish, we recommend that you pay attention to the following three factors.
Guidance type is recommended instead of fixed type.
A tairaba can be divided into two parts: a special tairaba weight and a rubber tie.
A fixed type is one in which the weight and tie are integrated, and a guided type is one in which the weight is not integrated and can move freely.
When a tie mackerel is sunk, the tie slowly sinks in relation to the harpoon, so it appeals to the fish even while it is sinking.
In addition, the advantage of the induction type tie mackerel is that it is easier to hook than the fixed type, so the induction type tie mackerel is recommended for beginners.
It is a good idea to first experience the fun of fishing with the guided type, and then try the more advanced fixed type.
Recommended weight of 60 to 80 grams.
The recommended weight of Taibara for beginners is 60g~80g.
If you have a few tilefish of this weight, you can basically enjoy tilefish all day long.
Also, there are two materials used to make newts, lead and tungsten, and I highly recommend tungsten for beginners.
Tungsten tie-rubbers are more expensive than lead ones, but they have the advantage of more stable movement.
This is a big advantage for beginners whose movements tend to be shaky, so although the price is high, you will not regret buying it.
Tungsten has a higher specific gravity and is smaller than lead even at the same weight, so be careful not to choose tungsten just because of its size.
Choose a variety of colors.
While the weight of the harpoon has been explained above, it is recommended to have several different colors of ties available.
If you’re using a guide type mackerel, you can change the combination of tie and harpoon as you like, so it’s okay to have a lot of ties.
The recommended colors are appealing colors such as orange and natural colors such as green.
By having several different colors, you can respond to a variety of situations.
In addition to ties, harpoons also come in a variety of colors and should be chosen in the same way as ties.
You can also have fun with your own favorite color combinations.
Six recommended tie-rubbers for fishing
Now let’s take a look at six types of tie-rubbers that we actually recommend.
Recommendation 1: Daiwa Kohga Bay Rubber Free Alpha One Day Pack
The Red Fang Bailer Bar Free Alpha One Day Pack is a tie-rubber sold by Red Fang, a brand specializing in tie-rubbers from Daiwa.
It is a product that includes a harpoon and three ties, and if you buy this, you can enjoy tie-rabbiting all day long.
The colors of the ties have been selected by Japanese tie-rubber professionals, so there are three colors available that will help you catch fish even when you can’t.
The weights of the harpoons range from 60g to 150g, allowing you to choose the weight that best suits the depth of the water and the flow of the tide.
If you don’t know much about tairaba yet, just buy this product and you’ll be fine.
Recommendation 2: Daiwa Kohga Bay Rubber Free TG Alpha Head
The Kohga Bay Rubber Free TG Alpha Head is a tungsten head (newt) sold by Daiwa’s Kohga.
It is available in a wide range of weights from 45g to 250g, and features an appropriate shape for each weight.
The lighter weights are designed to make it easier to feel the bite, while the heavier weights are designed to reduce drag.
Seven different colors are available, so you can choose the one that best suits your situation.
Use it in combination with a variety of ties of different colors and actions.
Recommended for those who want to enjoy full-fledged tilefish fishing using tungsten harpoons.
Recommendation 3: Daiwa Kohga Silicon Tie
The Kohga Silicon Tie is a silicon tie that is ideal for use with the above harpoon.
It comes in a variety of shapes, including straight and curly, so you can choose the one that best suits the fish of the day.
There are also dozens of different colors to choose from, so you can combine them in a variety of ways.
Silicone is also very durable, so you don’t have to worry about being bitten by sharp-toothed fish such as puffer fish.
They are all inexpensive, in the range of 400 yen, so you can buy several shapes and types and combine them freely.
It is also a good idea to match the color of the lure or to use the exact opposite color.
Recommendation 4: Shimano Baku Gake Custom
The Baku Gake Custom is a tie mackerel from Shimano that comes with a newt and tie, making it ideal for beginners.
The harpoon used in this tiger mackerel is a product called “Tiger Bakugake”, which is characterized by the fact that it swims while vibrating like a heartbeat.
Even if you reel it in quickly, it swims firmly and steadily.
The tie has already been customized so that it can be used by people who have never done tie-rabbits before and know nothing about it.
The harpoon is fixed rather than guided, but the color combination of the head and tie is excellent.
It allows you to explore more quickly and efficiently than guided tilefish.
Recommendation 5: Shimano Kyorin Baku Baku
The Kyorin Baku Baku is a highly appealing tie mackerel equipped with Shimano’s original hologram “Kyorin”.
The Kyorin Baku Baku imitates the scales of actual sardines, and features flashing that is as close to real bait as possible.
The tie is also equipped with a highly appealing tie with a high flashing effect.
For this reason, it is recommended as a tie mackerel for those who want to catch more snapper than anyone else when the snapper activity is high, or for beginners.
It uses Shimano’s “Baku Baku” head, which is specially designed for tie-rubbers, so it has a stable swimming motion.
It is also a good idea to use it in combination with the BAKUGAKE custom lure introduced above.
Recommendation 6: Shimano Houston Baku Baku TG Head
The Houston Baku Baku TG Head is a tungsten lure that is recommended for use in deep water or points with fast tidal currents.
As the name “Houston” suggests, its main feature is that it falls quickly and smoothly.
Try using it in situations where it takes a long time to reach the desired depth with a normal head, or where it is swept away.
Also, the tungsten effect makes it harder to feel the drag resistance even when using a heavy tilefish.
Another advantage is that you can freely change the combination with the tie according to your own preference and situation.
Choose the right (Taibara) Sea bream lure to catch those high-class fish!
That’s all I’ve said so far about tilefish, the lure used in tilefish fishing from a boat or boat to catch high class fish like sea bream.
Since tairaba is basically just sinking the lure and reeling it in, it is recommended for beginners.
If you are thinking of trying tilefish fishing, please choose your favorite tilefish from the six we have introduced.
