Lure Of The Week - Zerek Fish Trap
The Zereck Fish Trap is a soft lipless crankbait unlike any other on the market. It has a single curl tail at the back, it's tail beats at the slightest of movement, giving off visual and acoustic cues to the resident fish. Even when the lure is sitting on the bottom, the slightest current will have the tail pulsating and wriggling attracting the fish's attention. While on the lift and drop, the tail simulates a baitfish's tail perfectly as it swims through the water.
Built from the tough and durable TPE plastic, the Fish Trap has been designed to take on the toughest of fish with the use of extra strong split rings combining with the addition of ultratough 4x trebles. A through wire connecting all tow points that is moulded into the lead weight gives extra security in this vulnerable area. There is no doubt this lure is tough. Working with a strong vibration, the Fish Trap can be cast and retrieved in any depth or trolled for a unique presentation that shallow rock bar and weed bed fish just love!

Fishing Our Region
Good reports over the last week with some great fishing on our local lake, the afternoon bite still proves to be the most successful, the hump out from the buoy line is holding good fish, Zx blades or Soft Jackalls being the go too, trolling shallow diving hardbodies or lipless crankbaits above the broken weed has been the standout technique. Saltwater Yabbies and Live Bloodworms have been getting good numbers of fish for the bait anglers.
