If you’re heading to a local tackle store before a Cod trip chances are you’ll be looking at an assortment of divers, lipless crankbaits, spinnerbaits and surface lures. All of these lures are well justified to have all avenues covered, however there is a key lure style that is missing from that list, after speaking to a few blokes about this it seems to missing from quite a few of our Cod arsenals
Its hard to find a Cod lure that has a bit of size about it that doesn’t dive super deep, a lot of Cod lures are 8+ metre divers and are far too deep diving in smaller rivers where the average depth is around 2-3 metres. The Cyclone allows you to fish a bigger lure in these smaller river scenarios
Its that time of year again, Cod opening. For mine there is nothing that comes close to the excitement of the surface explosion from a Murray Cod. I started the season fishing the King river in regional Victoria, boy oh boy my response to the first couple of strikes were atrocious, the hits scared the hell out of me ending up in me pulling the lure out of the fishes mouth. After I got those first nervous strikes out of the road I was back on the horse and allowing the Cod to engulf the lure before striking and started to get a few hook ups.
Deep water jigging threadfin salmon
Let me tell you that those Juggernaut 90 vibes are totally awesome on threadfin salmon. Jigging in deep water today they caught 5 out of the 6 big threddys. The other guys on board were using some of the bigger name soft vibes and hardly got a touch. I think the LED in deep water helped as threddys don't have the best eyesight. They work best when the run backs off as they are a little light when the run starts to pick up, but hey great results today.

The Hunchback surface crawler has been a much anticipated release combining the excitement of surface fishing with our LED technology
The Balista Trigger doesn't look like a traditional Cod lure but boy does it catch fish. The 70mm chubby minnow profile is fantastic for fishing in small-medium rivers and impoundments. We've been fishing the Triggers
