@ YOUNGGUN

These are almost classic , wellknown and proven (big)pike lures in Europe ,...... some years ago "Rapala" came out with a sinking version as well , ........obviously many North European tinkerers had tuned their floaters to sink prior to that !

The sinking version descends at about 30 cms per second , ......apart from a couple of floaters I have a few of these and fish them slowly along the bottom of my favourite swim up to 15m deep in autumn and winter to catch pike and zander(walleye) ,........ they are a bit more sluggish with their wobbling action compared to the floating ones but nevertheless also take their share of fish !

nice lures thumbsupsmilie , ........greetz , diemai howdy

Hi Diemai,
The red head is a floater and the other is a countdown, I use them for Mulloway (jewfish) over here in oz. thumbsupsmilie

The floater is great when I am fishing the bridges at night, if there is mullet around the lights off the bridge then there will be jewfish if there is no mullet I go and find another bridge to try.

The countdown is good when I find fish in a deep hole I find on the sounder and I cast beyond the hole let it sink and crank it through the hole and hopefully hook a fish.

Thanks for sharing,

Cheers Todd

Hi Rob,

They are both 14cm in length the floater weighs 45g and the Countdown weighs 71g.

If my memory serves me correctly they are very similar except Pauls jewie lures are more rounded in the body and the Rapala's are slim line.

I caught plenty of jewie's on those particular lures you have Rob thumbsupsmilie thumbsupsmilie On of them was the first lure I landed a jew on thumbsupsmilie

Cheers Todd

Here's another popular colour for the Supershad, more for freshwater than jewies.
Not a bad big barra lure either! Image

Diemai: a good perch pattern for pike fishing?

    Mate, you'd be pleased to know that he donated a pair of the 14cm ones to a very good cause .... the Deception museum lol lol yay

    Well, I wouldn't really call it a donation -duh but they are now in very safe keeping and thoroughly appreciated howdy
    Cheers Rob
