Wide profile legs/flaps kick up some exotic action
Although its only 4 inches long, its's solid body and long legs make for a substantial profile

The verdict based on real customer feedback:

Reasons to buy

  • Oversize tail flaps look great on the fall and when working it through the water
  • Impressive action that attracts aggressive responses from bass. Great bait for dirty water where you need a bit more movement to catch the eye
  • It's a versatile fish catcher. Can be fished with huge success as a standalone bait when pitching or on the back of a jig/chatterbait
  • Although the bait is only 4 inches long, the oversized flaps at the back help create a super wide profile which is attractive to big fish. In addition to this, the body is also thicker than most creature baits on the market, providing it with plenty of weight and making the bait appear more substantial

Reasons not to buy

  • The only problem with this bait is its price to durability ratio. Many customers have complained that this bait just does not hold up very well and tends to take some serious damage when fish bite it.

Bottom line

The Gary Yamamoto Cowboy offers heaps of action and a substantial profile. It is a great fish catcher as a standalone bait or as a trailer and according to the customers who use it, it really does get a lot of bites.

One drawback of this bait is its lack of durability. Customers say that you can expect to have to change your bait after just about every fish you catch which can end up being pricey.
