    Banga Bait Lures for next season....

    Well I just received a couple of special high quality hard body lures today and they certainly look great and beautifully finished.. They're a well presented brown trout lure that I'm sure will suck quite a few trout in next season.. I'm really looking forward to giving them a good workout in the rivers & streams here in Tassie.. cheers Adrian

    2019/20 Trout season photo book

    Just received my 2019/20 Trout Season photo book, this time instead of making a two half yearly books I made a full season one of 134 pages.. I'm pretty happy with the end result.. Here's a few photos of the finished product.. Once again I waited until Snapfish had a 50% sale on that included extra pages.. The book is A4 size... cheers Adrian..

    I don't use blades much these days but I have these two in my bream box... Usually catch something on them when I decide to blow the dust of them. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    Bought some lures today

    After a hospital appointment with my dad all good . I went into TW looking to buy a mat black double clutch. Ended up buying three lures they didn’t have any mat black double clutches I fell to one double clutch I’d be not buying everyone says they are good I’ll try it tomorrow. The one I’d like info on the Jackson one any one used this one .

    Yeah I’ve got a mate who occasionally eats a mulloway And he says when the bait schools are in, their guts are jam packed with 3 inch skinny bait fish. He said the stomach was like a sausage casing stuffed with tiny bait fish so small lures definitely have their place for mulloway here’s one I got on a 5cm hb and 8lb leader

    Hey that thing is a horse. My biggest is nothing like that. But I do agree they fight like saltwater bream. Never caught a silver on lure yet. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk

    Unfortunately I didn't measure it. I would only be guessing if I told you a size. But it was pretty big and heavy

    It was a “mojiko” one they used to sell at anaconda. I think mojiko used to rip off river 2seas designs . So it’s probably just a copy of a river2sea. I bought a heap of mojiko a when they had a massive clearance in the Melbourne store ill see if I can find the name when I get home theu used to dive to around a metre or 1.2m

    Yeah I’d just dropped a mate off on a floating litter trap to collect some tennis balls for his dog. As I was floating away, I glanced at the sounder and said to my mate “you should see the bait on the sounder!!!!” He says have a cast, so I did one hop of the blade and there was a solid weight. It was on bream gear, so my mate had to balance awkwardly on a floating litter trap for the next 30 mins

    The smaller ones still catch plenty of fish.. I've seen a 120cm mully pulled out of W/L on one.

    Did you buy the 3.2 gram 35mm the smaller one and maybe the 5cm 11gram might have been better the next size up

    Bewdiful work Adrian - We recently had something similar whipped up for my Grandmas 90th - even at 50% off, its a decent investment but what price do you put on capturing priceless memories.

    400th Trout of the 2019/20 season..

    400 fish in a season is a very reasonable catch. 1000 is but a wish for trout hunters here in SA. Keep up living the dream down there mate. Coz you are sure keeping me motivated to keep trying myself. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk

    400th Trout of the 2019/20 season..

    Thanks guys, reaching the 400th trout was a reasonable catch for the season even though it was well down on last season it's better than 380 or less Tinker it's been pretty frosty here in Tassie as well, minus three in Sheffield a couple of days ago with a max of 8 degrees.. cheers Adrian

    You're welcome, I'm confident they'll pick up quite a few trout.. You've certainly done a very professional job on them & yes keep that pattern going for sure.. Once I'm back in the rivers you'll see a few photos of trout with the lures hanging out of their mouth.. cheers Adrian

    Thanks for the kind words mate. Much appreciated.. i hope it slays you a few trout when you get back out there! They certainly the best ones I've painted to date and will be keeping with that pattern for all my trout lures from now on!

    Upper Mersey wild brown trout..

    Here's another of my videos as the season drew closer to closing... wasn't a bad spin season with a few wild brown trout being caught... At the end of the spin season I said the biggest trout was a 455 gram brown. it wasn't I forgot about the 485 gram brown I caught... Long day in the water, had a brain fade at the end of it.. cheers Adrian

    Banga Baits

    Added the pattern onto some of them this morning. Stencils are the best thing ever to add another dimension to lures... added 3 different stencils to 3 different baits... Just needs sealant then clear coat Nd eyes and they are ready to smash PBs The middle one is my favourite out of the lot!

    Whting filleting machine, I want one.

    What gets me is why does Coles send the fish to Asia for processing, then send it back to us for sale? I wouldn't trust ANYTHING, especially food stuffs from Asia...

    Lure ID

    Yeah I’ve had limited experience with alveys but I do remember them casting a mile......but bringing the line back in wasn’t much fun yeah I’ve never understood aniseed scent in the salt. I know there are plants that grow along the creeks that smell a lot like aniseed so it wouldn’t be too “foreign” a scent there - and would probably mask some human odours but I wonder why it works well out in the salt. i occasionally think some people catch fish in spite of the scents they are using, not because of them like wd40 - a lot of people used to use because they believed it was made from fish oil but the website says that isn’t true. But i spose when the fish you are targeting mistakes golf balls for duck eggs - you aren’t dealing with the most discerning palate

    Yeah when I was loooking at the profile of these old lures they looked like they could do with a bit of bending to get some action out of them
