Product Of The Week - Megabass Big-M

Send tremors through Murray Cod lurking in the shallows with the all-new Megabass Big-M Crankbaits. The bill’s unique scoop design wrangles the water to produce rolling action and intense flashing, sparking wild chases through open water and shallow cover alike. With a low center-of-gravity design, it harnesses max-rotation rolling action to throw intense flash farther and wider, giving enticing glimpses of its exquisite flat-sided form to predators in the deep.

Casts are powered by a triple balancer system, enabling long-distance ballistic approaches in weather conditions that would otherwise overpower conventional flat-sided offerings. Furthermore, due to careful hydrodynamic consideration, the Big-M exhibits surprisingly low pulling-resistance for its size, reducing the fatigue so often associated with larger lures. This allows anglers to comfortably deploy big bait techniques to target wider areas and new classes of fish with minimal effort. Take your cranking game to new heights with the Megabass Big-M.

- Good results again this week with some good fish catches coming in, Spinnerbaits and other reaction style baits worked towards the timber has been successful. Good schools around Bass Point have been located and caught on metal blades and 3 inch plastics. 

- With a recent rise in water level it’s looking perfect for that shallow Swimbait bite and already seeing some positive results.  Hard to go past the ever faithful Jackall Gantarel or Gigantarel for working those shallow grassy Banks. Locating bait is key for finding those active fish during the low light hours of the day. Fishing during the day targeting deeper banks with chatterbaits, spinnerbaits and soft vibes. Plenty of Yellow Belly being caught amongst the timber on the deeper points. Zx blades and smaller vibes being popular.
