Shimano's ORCA Topwater System was designed with a proprietary internal weight position to create an action that attracts explosive surface bites from top level saltwater predators. The attractively finished pencil baits work most effectively with the complete Shimano system of a high-speed Stella or Sustain spinning reel spooled with PowerPro and a fluorocarbon leader, and then matched to Terez 8-foot popping rods. When combined with the aerodynamics built into the ORCA lures, this complete system results in accurate, long distance casts to surface feeding fish and also provides the power to land trophies weighing hundreds of pounds. ORCAs come in 160mm and 190mm sizes and six colors.
These are pencil lures taken to the ultimate level and entice everything from dorado to yellowfin tuna. The best results are achieved using the ORCA Topwater System:
Stella SW or Sustain FG Spinning Reel (Conventional reels not recommended)
Terez Rod (Heavy for 160 mm, Extra Heavy for 190 mm)
