Hey guys,

I haven't been on the website for awhile since I been traveling to work. I brought you guys a little treat of what the spikes look like in Japan.



Well here is one type of tuna spike they have in Japan as we know our standard type of spike we have here in the US which is either made out of steel T-bar or if not a screwdriver with the tip sharpened.



Here is a other type of spike which is spiked on the side above the eyes and it also works as a gill rake to cut the blood vessel inside of the gill plate.

Finally below is one that Japan uses a lot. This on has a hole in the middle of the spike to insert the wire down the spinal cord to stop the rigamortis effect of the fish.



I will be bringing the wire with spike tool on the 31st on Odium charter 5o give it a test on side of the fish.

Excuse my ignorance, but what are these "spikes"? Did a Youtube, but doesn't look like what you have here.

If you don't mind me asking. What part of Japan did you find these in?

These are available as well. Similar for smaller fish. Saw these in Tokyo today

How did this one work for you? I saw it yesterday and was thinking of getting one. Thanks

That "Belmont" model even has a yt right on the package
Yeah the sizing on the front shows how long it it. That's a medium, so perhaps for some footballs or slightly larger models.

Those are actually good. I usually can spike and wire in 30 sec or less. Get it if you are going to target gamefish
I found the "LONG" version that's 80 cm long.
