Daiwa Double Clutch 115
There is no doubt the demands of barramundi anglers ask a lot of the tackle they use, with many lures on the market falling short of the durability required to be a go-to lure for northern anglers. That’s why when making the Double Clutch 115, Daiwa engineers started from scratch, and focused on producing a lure which could emulate the action of the smaller Double Clutch series but incorporate a solid and strong through-wire system.
A key feature of Double Clutch is the Silent Gravity Oscillating System (S-GOS) casting mechanism. This is a sound-dampened casting weight which is held in place by magnets to perfectly balance casting distance and swimming posture and action, without making the lure incredibly loud underwater. This system makes Double Clutch 115 fly straight & true, whilst remaining almost silent under the surface, something many clued on barramundi anglers swear by.
Incorporating the through-wire system with a heavy-duty body construction, Double Clutch 115 is ready to meet the challenge. Fitted with 4X Japanese treble hooks and split rings, there is no need for aftermarket tuning to make this lure ready for battle.
Fishing Our Region
Cressbrook - Its heating up and so are the Red Claw, plenty of Red Claw have been caught just off the edges of the weed, remember 4 pots person.
For the fishing side of the things good schools of bass have been holding to the right of the ramp in around the 35ft mark, blades, plastics and 20g spoons have been the lures of choice.
Somerset - Some very solid reports this past week with plenty of anglers getting out during the school holidays, still good numbers of fish around pelican point and down to bay of plenty, these fish have been sitting quite shallow around the 20ft mark in these areas. Spoons like the Nories Wasaby, Hot Bite G2 and Palms slow blatt are the ideal lure for this time of year as the Boney bream schools are in huge numbers.
Leslie - Leslie has fished well through out the school holidays and it continues this past week, the edges of the creek bed is your best bet on finding better numbers. Locating submerged structure in these areas has been successful, again jigging blades, vibes has worked, also trolling has started to show some good signs, for other anglers saltwater yabbies have again proved they are the best bait on the market.
Moogerah - With plenty of boat traffic at this time of year hasn't stopped the fish from biting, good schools have been found on the larger points and on the inside of the timbered flats, plastics, and spoons have been the go to for these fish, reasonable catches of Yellow belly have also been reported, ice jigs and metal blades worked vertically tight to structure has been best.
Monduran - The water temp is rising and this means one thing, these fish are getting more active by the day, reacting well to a wide range of techniques, casting smaller profile plastics like the Hollow Shads to the back of bays has been very effective, Locating the warmer water is key. Also fishing Timbers points and banks with suspending hardbodies like Jackall Squirrel 79 and Samaki Redic Ds80. As the water warms even more we should see these fish become more active off the larger points and eating the larger baits, this is where the Molix 140 comes into its own.
