I would think that it would be an excellent plug. He's one of the Vendors at the Asbury Park Fishing show.
The best builders in the entire northeast sell their stuff there.

The yozuri five inch is an ounce at best. So you need a lighter rod rated for around 1/2 to 1-1/2 ounces or one rated in the 3/4 to 2-1/4 ounce category. Usually these are around 7 and 1/2 feet.
You could burn a pin hole in it and load it with a few ccs of water and seal it back up for a bit more distance to experiment a bit.
