Megabass Anthrax 83 – twitch it, pop it, crank it, wake it!



By Mat Cameron Even for the high standards and levels of ingenuity from Megabass, the Anthrax is nothing short of outstanding. It is arguably the most versatile surface lure on the market, which is of great benefit for the angler as the retrieve can be varied to trigger that strike from the fish. The 83mm […]

Way out west!



by Luke Galea Well yeeehaaa!! I just love making the long drive out west in pursuit of toga and sootys. Well toga more-so of course but certainly the abundance of big brute sootys sure does fill in time between toga bites. Last Sunday my mate Rhys and I decided it was time to catch the […]

Samurai Reaction Squid M does the damage



by Brad Corrie With the weather forecast looking a little nicer here in SA i thought it would be a prime time to get the Haines Prowler out and go drifting for squid, hitting the ramp at 6am was the plan as the temp was meant to peak at 42 degrees. We had picked out […]

Those spots where you think would not be possible to hold any fish of substance can occasionally blow you away. There was a session in the far upper reaches of […]

Targeting Tricky Toga



by Luke Galea There could be no arguing that Saratoga would be one of the most spectacular looking freshwater fish there are. Their appearance verges on prehistoric and to be honest, they would not look out of place swimming around with the dinosaurs. Every scale is marked with unique red/brown spots like an Albert Nemertjira […]

Simply Sooty



by Luke Galea Pound for pound, Sooty Grunter would have to be one of the hardest fighting freshwater fish around as I am sure anyone who has caught them, would attest to. They are thick shouldered beasts, with an absolute aggression to smash a lure and fight dirty in skinny, fast flowing waters where they […]
