Lure of the week
Jackall Transam 95
The Jackall Transam 95 has quickly become one of the most successful soft vibes to hit the shores of Australia. This lure has accounted for an incredible number of trophy Barramundi, jew, threadfin salmon, bass, yellow belly, cod, snapper, flat head and the list goes on.
Cooby has fished well this week considering the small windows of opportunity anglers have had to get out, still ZX blades and soft Jackalls working well in the deeper water while lipless crankbaits and small shallow diving hardbodies have been the standout for the trolling anglers. Finding areas where the water is running in from the recent rain will be your best bet. The large rock wall is ideal for this situation as the fish will move to the running water.
Still good reports coming from our local lake, the bass are school up in good numbers not far from the ramp, the main lake points are holding the majority of the fish, while there has also been a reasonable edge bite into the afternoon as the water cools down, For the schooled fish they have reacted well to spoons and heavily weighted plastics fished hard on the bottom, The ever faithful 3 inch slider grub has been the stand out as aswell as the Palms Slow Blatt and Hot Bits Raptor.
Still one of our most consistent lakes, The fish have spread out all over the lake, the southern part of the dam from Bay 13 to the Spit is holding the Majority of the fish. The Morning sessions have been the most productive with the warmer weather shutting down the fish during the day, Trolled Hardbodies like the Smak Range has caught there fair share of fish while the fish have been reasonably spread out on the deeper flats.
