This is primarily what I would consider to be a walking-style topwater. It has a little bit of a cup to the mouth, which catches and spits a little water as the bait is walked. That’s why Yo-Zuri included “Pencil” in the name of the lure, as this is a feature common among pencil baits or pencil poppers. But this isn’t a super pronounced deal with the Pencil 100, so I chose not to focus on that much.
The Yo-Zuri 3DB Series Pencil 100 is a really easy bait to walk. It has a good side-to-side action and again has a distinct one-knock sound to it. With a couple of strong and well sized round-bend hooks, paired with this bait’s unique reflective inner surface and great castability, the Pencil 100 is worth checking out.
Available in 13 colors, there’s likely a little something in their lineup that will look like whatever is naturally swimming along the surface on your local fishery. At $7.99, this is a pretty good package for the price. It’s definitely a bait worth checking out for sure if you’re in the market for a mid-size walking topwater.
