@ DalbyKayakin

..................great to have a reliable and proven lure model in the armory , .....nice catch , congrats thumbsupsmilie .

Do you plough the river bottom with these lures or it's deeper than their max. running depth ?

Between the 2 of us, using these 2 lures, a metallic blue tadpolly, my homemade fishtailer, and a pink poltergeist we caught a few good feeds for my grandmother.

nah mate we've only been letting out about 5 metres of line, we've found that's plenty in the water we're fishing in (in the kayaks that is) the hellbender kept getting snagged, i thought they were good at bumping over the snags but this fella didnt wanna bump over the snags at all

Yes thats right plus there were copies made by Shakespeare. The bibs on the Bomber Waterdogs are different to Whopper Stopper bibs thumbsupsmilie

Well done on catching fish 'old school' clapclap

Don't have much experience in trolling lures behind a boat , it's not allowed on the waters I most likely fish(though I'm still doing it sometimes in autumn and early winter when nobody's around watching , just when moving from spot to spot) .

Why don't you take a lure that runs shallow enough instead of letting only little line out , .......any advantages(sorry , but to me it just looks like wasting the potential of a lure lol ) ?

Or is is just the swimming action of the Hellbender , that you have so much confidence in , ........as I figure out by your recent picture , also other , shallower running lures providing a strong wiggling action(Tadpolly , Poltergeist)still do bring in the goodies ?

cheers , Dieter howdy

I find it easier to control where my lures are and how close to the snags my lures are if i have them closer to the kayak anyway, and i do like the little spinner on the hellbenders, so far its been 100% hookup rate too
