A successor to the WH-5 bite inducer, the WH-8 sinks 8 feet deep. We’ve kept the original attributes of the WH-5 and added a capacity for depth that leaves little chance for escape for the bass. Of course, with the WH-8 anglers get to enjoy the original WH-5’s superior capacity for avoiding snags. Using its ability to explore depths, the WH-8 can go deep and approach the bottom in ways previously not possible. Furthermore, compared with the original, the new deep model has a larger body that makes for better casting and bite-inducing appeal. During the early spring 2014 Bassmaster Classic at Lake Guntersville, Shimizu was pulling out 5-pounders out of the water three days in a row; and, later in the fall during a TV shoot, again, consecutive 5-pounders. The results speak for themselves. Regardless of field or season, the WH-8 is a powerhouse that forms the core of Shimizu’s cranking career. No other explanation needed.
