Lure of the week
Designed for larger predators and packed full of features the Gantia has become one of the go-to swimbaits for barramundi and Murray Cod. The combination of a slimmer profile, 4 body sections linked by heavy duty joints and large range of movement between sections allows the Gantia to move like a natural bait fish.
It's been a hard slog at Somerset during the week with some very challenging weather conditions on the lake, the anglers having the most success have use there win to their advantage, drifting the large flats and covering water has been key. The fish are moving very quickly so catching only 1 or 2 fish from the school has been quite common, Between Pelican point and Red Rock is still holding good numbers of fish, The Hot Bite Spectre has been the standout lure again.
Leslie has produced some great fish this past week, Good numbers of smaller yellow belly have been on the bite after the recent rain, with the water clearing up the lure fishing has picked up, vertical jigging Zx
By the far the standout lake during the last few weeks, a huge rise in water level only means one thing for this lake and thats an exceptional edge bite, Jackall's Spinnerbaits or Jigs the fishing has been red hot. The shallower the better the fish have moved up into new water where it was dry the last few months. The Topwater bite has been close to its best, the Jackall SK Pop Grande and the Water Mocison has accounted for good numbers of fish in the low light periods.
