GIGANTAREL – DEAN NORBIATO

Category : NEW AT JACKALL

Jackall Gigantarel

 

With the big swimbait revolution currently gripping the Australian Murray Cod and Barramundi fishing scene, the release of Jackall’s biggest and meanest swimbait, the Gigantarel, couldn’t have been timed better.

 

The Gigantarel is by far one of the biggest baits in the Jackall stable at over 200mm in length and weighing close to a house brick at a whopping 153gm. Without question, It’s the biggest and baddest Bandito bikie in the Jackall swimbait gang.

 

While it’s the big brother in the family it hasn’t lost any of its finesse with the same lifelike action that you become accustom too with a Jackall lure, which is sure to make any Murray cod or Barramundi quiver in fright.

 

Just like his smaller comrades the Gantarel (160mm) and Chibitarel (130mm), the beefed up Gigantarel uses its protruding pectoral fins to dive around one metre in depth and snake through the water with a tantalising S shape swimming action.

 

Again, like a mirror of its brothers it has two tow points making it a versatile sub and surface lure. If you want a top-water bait that has a seductive sway along the waters surface tie the lure, via a loop knot, to the bottom tow point. If you want the lure diving around 4ft in depth tie your leader onto the top tow point and it will drag the lure down in the water column.

 

Due to the sheer size and weight of the scale-crushing lure, a big watch out I noticed when I first flung the bibless lure was the need to upsize your standard Cod or Barra rod. I had to put my favourite 6kg 7’ Venom baitcaster back in the rack and call on the new Venom 10kg 7’6” Swimbait rod.

 

Using the right tools for the trade will mean you get the most out of your lure and give yourself the best chance at nailing that career defining fish.

 

So, if you are looking to wade into the big bait revolution currently sweeping the Australian freshwater scene, try one of Jackall’s new Gigantarel swimbaits – you wont be disappointed.

 

They will be available from all good Australian Jackall retailers from December 2016.

Dave Young takes out second place BASS Boondooma

I just got home from the BASS Australia Nation Boondooma Bass Pro Tournament and have had some time to reflect on my 2nd Place finish. The all new Jackall DD Squirrel 79 Silent Suspending jerkbait dominated the pre-fish leading up to the event and it proved to be a stand out during the tournament, cementing 1st & 2nd place.

The Squirell range of jerkbaits have been around long enough to establish themselves as one of the best jerkbaits on the market. Available in 61mm, 67mm for some time now the recent addition of the 79mm version fitted out with hardware suitable for impoundment and inshore anglers is a welcome one. This bait has all the quality attributes that have made the previous models so successful and with a great new range of colours this bait is sure to be a big hit in the coming months as the water cools and the big bass start hunting bigger bait.

I focused on fishing shallow banks featuring broken weed and rocks with the Jackall DD Squirrel 79 in Oroko HL Chartback Bluegill colour. I would position the boat in 12-15 feet of water and make a long cast at a 45 degree angle to the boat. The larger 79mm Squirrel allowed me to cast long distances comfortably with the aid of my Dobyn’s Champion Extreme 702 Baitcaster matched up with a Shimano Chronach 50Mg reel and 12lb Sunline Castway PE braided line / 12lb Sunline FC Rock Fluorocarbon leader. I would crank the Squirrel for 6 – 8 turns of the handle to get it down deep into the weed before commencing a “twitch, twitch, pause” retrieve all the way back to the boat. The key was to be patient and allow the lure to pause between twitches as this is when a lot of the fish struck.

Winters coming and that means big bass time. Get yourself some big jerkbaits and get twitching, the big bass are waiting!

New Lizinc blades are a hit on the Bass

The New Jackall Lizinc

 

Fishing the Lizinc spoon.

Why so good – Realistic paint patterns for either flash or colour bite triggers. Erratic darting action when ripped or fast retrieved. Realistic dying baitfish horizontal shimmering fall action on slack line. Zero line twist with the rigged swivel.

Fishing a Jackall Lizinc spoon is relatively easy. Cast your spoon out and let it sink on slack line to the bottom or the depth you want to fish if the fish are suspended. A quick rip of your rod from the water level to about 1 oclock will move your spoon about 2mts up off the bottom then follow your line back leaving a slight belly of slack. This will let your spoon fall horizontal back to the fish, looking like a dying bait fish. Fish will mostly eat it on the fall. Twitches of the rod tip will impart more action into the spoon if you are trying to excite the fish to strike.

My preferred gear would be a 7ft to 7’6″ spin rod of Medium action.

Big Bream in dirty water by Andrew Low

Category : Uncategorized

After a lot of recent rain the local river was firing. I arrived early at the ramp and with the water still quite murky I knew the bream would have ideal hunting conditions. So the Jackall Chubby was the first lure out there as it’s always been the go to hardbody for most people since it’s introduction. The bream were hitting the deck with consistency with the best being around 37cm fork length. Not bad fishing but I was after something bigger.

So I decided for my next trip I would upsize my lure an went for a DCherry in gold craw. I was a bit early for the tide as I needed more water over the rock wall I wanted to fish. So I tried a different spot while I waited, I tied on a 1/8th stand up jig head and rigged up a 2″ cover craw.

Casting in tight an watching the line for any subtle bites I let the craw sink down to the bottom, from there it’s just a slight slow lift and drop all the way back to the boat. After drifting about 30 metres the first bream was on, not a big fish but a start. Minutes later I had a solid whack on the craw an some big head shakes followed, this was no bream.

After a screaming run it was clear to me a Jew had taken a liking to my craw. So 45 minutes later I landed the Jew a long way from where I hooked it ! Always worth taking your time though to ensure you land the fish. A quick pic an measure an then I released it, an now back to chasing this big bream.

 

Big head shakes are a giveaway you're hooked up to a Jew

 

I lost almost an hour of tide chasing the Jew around so it was time to head to the shallows which now had enough water on them so I could start throwing the DCherry. I had my first bream after around four casts and although it wasn’t a giant at least I knew the size didn’t put him off. Pretty soon the fish started to get bigger and as I slowly bounced my lure along the bottom……whack !

Next thing my drag was screaming ! This fish was cutting a lot of water,I knew this could be the fish I wanted. As it come closer to the boat I could see how big it was and I backed off my drag a little to ensure I didn’t pull the hooks next to the boat. Once it was in the net I looked at the lure in the side of its mouth and although it may have seemed large for bream fishing, it sure looked pretty small hanging out of this guys mouth. It just goes to show you never know unless you try.

So now I’ll go digging through my lure box wondering what else will work an how big can I go before it’s too big ?

I caught a 38 cm fork length along with the big guy at 42 cm fork and a stack of other nice fish before the tide changed and the bite stopped.

All in all it was a great few trips and like each trip fishing I learned a little bit more. @lowysfishn
