Picked up one of these the other day, they look great. They also look very similar to the Jackal Chubby, but half the price.

mmm mm they keep eyeballing me when i walk past them @ the local...i thinks once the flathead slow down and i get back on to th ebream i MAY have to snavel some..the blue gill pattern looks sweet !

Dan I bought the exact same one the oter day and gave it a run, landbased, it is a very heavy lure for its size, and dives down pretty quick, I soon gave up with it because I kept catching the bottom, but me thinks it will slay a couple out of a boat where it would be easier to handle

Are they floaters Dan?

If they are Prawno just run them slower. I run the cc predators landbased they dive a lot deeper ,yeah they hit bottom but I slow right down and skim the bottom this is where I usually get my best hits.

Just an thought thumbsupsmilie

as an addition to that Mully, i was once told by an SA 'guru' that you run very close to the bottom from bream and bottom to mid water for Mulloway...sound logical as the bream are scavengers / predators and snort th silt to find yumchaa, where as Jewies are predominatly predatory, hence their bottom lurking in order to ambush prey abouve them...
my 3.8 cents !
