Product of The Week - Baitsanity Explorer Gill

Baitsanity - Explorer Gill 6

A must-have Swimbait for all big-bait Murray Cod enthusiasts, the Baitsanity Explorer Gill Glide Bait delivers an ultra-realistic baitfish profile and an unrivalled action that big fish like Murray Cod can’t resist. Moulded with an anatomically correct profile and details, the Baitsanity Explorer Gill Glide Bait features a single joint construction, which generates a wide side-to-side “S” swimming action that draws the curiosity of fish and triggers ferocious strikes. It also features silicone attachments inside the joints to reduce noise as it glides back and forth for a more natural presentation that will fool even the most discerning Murray Cod. Adding to its realism, the 3D scales feature a three-level grain design, a progression of texturing that adds more depth to make the swimbait look more lifelike.

Moving down to the back end, the Baitsanity Explorer Gill Glide Bait features a patent-pending bait connect system, which allows anglers to change the original tail out with different tail styles to create other actions or replace old worn-out tails to keep that bait in tip-top condition. Armed with a set of premium treble hooks ready to chase trophy-calibre fish right out of the package, the Baitsanity Explorer Gill Glide Bait offers a deadly baitfish imitation that will help you catch your next metre plus Murray cod.
