Product Of The Week - Daiwa Steez Soft Shell 90

Back in stock for the second time after its recent release, this bait is going to be special and already people are kicking some serious goals with it.

The STEEZ Soft Shell is a uniquely designed soft vibration bait developed in Australia to offer a never before seen take on the soft vibration segment.

Designed with two crawfish like appendages to add a unique action as the lure sinks to the bottom, the Soft Shell will rest with the claws up thanks to the standup design of the head and the buoyant nature of the material.

Designed to be fished close to the bottom with either a hopping or shaking retrieve, the Soft Shell excels targeting our freshwater predator species such as Yellowbelly, Barra, Australian Bass and more. In saltwater, it draws strikes from prawn feeding species such as Flathead, Mulloway and Snapper.

The STEEZ Soft Shell can be rigged numerous ways and comes standard with both stinger hooks and BKK Fang treble hooks in the pack.

Both Saltwater Yabbies and worms have working well for the other anglers. If your heading out on foot working the deeper edges towards the rock wall. 

Cressbrook - Some very challenging fishing over the past few months but week by week there’s more results coming in. The Yellow Belly have been in good numbers, Jigging blades around Deer island and the Cressbrook Creek arm has been popular. The Bass are quite spread out throughout the lake with some anglers catching the better fish off the edges on Tn60’s and Suspending Jerkbaits. For the schooled fish targeting the larger point casting Metal blades has been effective.
