Nothing short of a sensation. First exploding onto the impoundment bass scene, TN’s are now proving their worth in a variety of fresh and salt applications. The TN series is the most tournament winning/used lure in Australia.

The TN70 Silent features all the fish catching features of the massively successful TN60 Silent but in a larger profile. Allowing you to efficiently check offshore weed flats and manmade cover. Casting performance with no headwind allows you to continue using without stress.

Fishing Our Region

Cooby Dam - Our local lake has fished a little harder this weekend with the recent weather change. With these cooler temps the fish have moved in close to the edges looking for the water warmer, this is great for the Bank anglers, saltwater yabbies and shrimp have been the best options. For other fisherman still ZX blades and soft vibes have been popular, the majority of the fish are tiring quite close to submerged structure, vertically jigging these baits have had the most success. Trolling close in on the edges with lipless crankbaits and shallower running hardbodies has been quite effective.

Cressbrook - Starting to see some better bass fishing this week, the smaller fish have been located on the larger lake points, targeting them with metal blades or spoons. Yellow belly have still being the easiest target working the rockier edges with hardbodies or Zx blades.

Leslie - By the far the most consistent lake with big numbers of fish being caught, Zx blades proving very dominant yet again. Small soft vibes have also caught their fair share of fish jigging both these baits around submerged structure has had the best results. A few lucky anglers have accounted legal sized cod, trolling the edges of the creek bed with Deeper hardbodies is working well, staying in contact with the bottom is a must.

Somerset - Plenty of smaller fish around this week, Pelican point has been by far the pick of the areas with good schools being located in 30ft of water.
Hot Bite Spectre remains the lure of choice with plastics and spoons keeping the fish honest aswell.

Boondooma - Good reports over the last few weeks and it continued again, both the Stuart and Boyne arms are holding good numbers of fish, the reaction bite has been in full swing with Jackall TN60’s and spinnerbaits being the pick of the lures. While other parts of the lake like Pelican point, Barbers Pole and Leezagangs are holding good patches of smaller fish. Blades, spoons and chatterbaits getting the results.

Monduran - This week we have seen massive numbers of smaller being very active amongst the shallow water, targeting submerged weed in bays or points. Fishing lighter weighted plastics like the Molix 120 and Shad’s Hollow Shad has been effective, the larger fish have been very hard to tempt. Follow the wind and finding healthy weed is key. .
