Gamakatsu® DuraScent Octopus Brings Energetic Action to Waterways

Gamakatsu® takes their innovations into the soft bait market by introducing DuraScent baits. Whatever species anglers are chasing, there’s a DuraScent offering tailor-made for that purpose, with built-in features that outfish and outlast the competition.

The DuraScent Octopus brings eight legs of super-durable and energetic action to waterways from coast to coast and beyond, tempting fish with its undulating natural action. It comes in three sizes – 1.5 inches, 4.5 inches and 6 inches – to “match the hatch” and appeal to a wide array of gamefish. DuraScent Octopus are extremely durable lasting longer than traditional soft plastic octopus/hoochie style baits. Super-soft elastomer provides extreme flexibility and stretches to over 6 times its length. Its buoyant material floats, creating a natural look and feel that fish can’t resist. The 1.5-inch size is infused with shrimp scent and is ideal for targeting kokanee, trout, bass and panfish. The 4.5-inch size is infused with an all-natural blend of real shrimp extract and is perfect for salmon and other larger species. Rig it behind a favorite dodger or flasher, and the natural action and extreme scent will help trigger more strikes. The 6-inch size excels when targeting a wide variety of bigger bottom fish like halibut. Anglers don’t leave home without a DuraScent Octopus if they want to come home with a full fish box or livewell.
