Derek Yamamoto

Cody Meyers Tournament Tested, "Fish Approved". The name "Yamamoto" is nothing less than legendary in the multi-million dollar sport fishing industry, and Derek Yamamoto has drawn upon that heritage to found KINAMI BAITS® company young in years but wise with experience, KINAMI BAITS® is built on the knowledge of generations of fishermen and determined to maintain the family tradition of producing the highest quality, most effective soft plastic baits available.

Gary Yamamoto

Cody Meyers Gary Yamamoto was born a fisherman on the shores of Hawaii. Before he was old enough to help with the family business he was tasked with catching his family's dinner. As he grew he honed his skills as a fisherman and today is known as one of the best of the business both as an angler and business man.
His keen eye for detail has allowed him to build products that not only refined categories, but actually started new lure categories altogether - like the Senko, the most revolutionary lure introduction of the past generation - and he shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.
