If you think surface fishing is exciting, wait until you try the all new Balista Hunchback Murray Cod surface lure. The flashing red LED light in the tail of the lure sets the scene for amazing visuals as large surface feeding Murray Cod belt the flashing Hunchback off the surface.

Its one thing to get strikes on a Cod surface lure, its an entirely different ball game hooking up on those strikes and converting those strikes into fish landed. The lure design inspired the Hunchback name, as the tail of the lure hunches around and down to allow the rear point of the lure to sit below the surface which is why the lure has such good hook up rates. In conjunction with the hook-up specific design of the lure we fit the Hunchback out with super sharp 3X trebles for big strength as well as further promoting excellent hook up rates.

Also featuring a clip off bib allowing you to crawl the Hunchback across the surface, or walk the dog. The clip off bib also makes for handy storage, as surface crawlers are generally difficult to store with the large nature of the bibs. You can store the Hunchback surface crawler in your tackle box with ease.

Next time you're going surface fishing try out the Balista Hunchback, every single feature of this lure is designed to promote more fish striking the lure, and more fish hooking up on the lure. No frills, just straight to business fish catching features. Try one out today.
