    Amendment.

    Number of reported (tagged) king threadfin caught in Fitzroy in last 3 weeks = 220 (not 250).

    Number 1m or more = 130 (59%).

    Lets have a look. These are my thoughts only.

    Lure A.

    Surface lure (stick bait) but it hangs bum down somewhat. Only gets body vibrations into water by rod tip control pushing water sideways (walk-the-dog technique). Darker back with fluro belly so highly visible from underneath depending on water turbidity. Has a rattle for audio attraction.

    Would I buy 1 for barra?

    Yep.


    Lure B

    Another surface lure that hangs bum down a bit. A surface popper.

    This lure has 2 thing going for it.

    Number 1 is the colour seen from underwater. White which is a colour more visible than most in almost any turbidity and water colour.

    Number 2 is the rattle.

    The fluro stripes are useless unless fishing for seagulls. The fluro orange stripes are on the back and only visible from above. But its a "floater" so they're only visible from the air.

    Colour scheme dreamt up by an artist and not a fisherman. Pretty so known as bower bird lures.

    Catching fishermen might not have been an intention but its sure an outcome with this lure.

    Would I buy 1 for barra? Nope.

    Some Fitzroy threadfin king catches last week by the Powell father and son team.. (Dan and Michael ).

    In one session 7 over 1 metre with 140, 136,130, 129, 122. Mixed the photos up a bit and missed a couple, I think

    Note the dirty water colour.
