Ron Thompson Bass Buster: This medium sized surface popper, has a single low frequency rattle that attracts fish from great distances.
It casts like a bullet and extremely long distances can be achieved by the novice with modest tackle, as well as the experienced well equipped angler.
It is very well made, beautifully finished, furnished with mustad 4 X tinned trebles & will handle tropical toothy critters straight out of the packet.
Excellent for those difficult to reach long range, over the rocks Bass here in the UK and abroad this lure is great for all sorts of reef fish in shallow water & it also excels on surf beaches for jacks,queens, leerfish & barracuda.
In Gambia this is my number ONE "go to" lure for beach fishing, it casts long distance with ease, is simplicity itself to work & it catches !
Another highly recommended, excellent catcher at a very reasonable price available in a range of six colours.
The price means it is not the end of the world if you lose one or two in your quest for that "big one" & this is a lure you can afford to give to the locals at the end of your holiday with out breaking your heart or the bank.
Chug Bugg / Hammerhead: This lure needs on introduction, it has been around for over two decades & is a proven catcher.
This is a 110 mm, 14g surface popper with loud internal rattles, ideally suited to summer Bass fishing & we have some extra colours you wont find elsewhere. We have caught everything from mackerel to large reef Pollock on these, they are also great to have in your bag/box when traveling the world & have saved the day on several occasions for me. I have had Leer fish & Rooster fish in Costa Rica on these, Jacks & queen fish in Oman, Groupers, barracuda & needle fish in Cuba all on a lure that is less than a fiver !!
Items on this page:
The Conrad Bass Popper has a slightly narrower profile than the Bass Buster and is about half the weight for a more delicate presentation. It has a nice deep cut face and shifts a large amount of water in front. We have had excellent results with both sea and freshwater fish on this lure.
Savage Gear Surf Walker This lure is yet another in a long line of needle fish copies, however it casts well, moves well & most importantly it catches fish well.
This model is 180mm long & weighs 27g not so good for LRF or fun tiddler snatching, but perfect for specimen hunting or pot hunting for those of you that keep your two "permitted" bass per day !!
This lure is made for "Hunthouse", "Hart", "Savagear", "Savage Salt" & "Kingdom" to name just the ones available in the UK.
They are ALL made in the same factory in the same mould & simply packaged differently for the different companies that sell them.
Here we have another lure we have bought on "Over Run" straight from the factory, some in the above companies packaging & some in plain plastic tubes.
And like all our other "over run" lures we cant sell them as originals even when they are packed in their original packaging !
You will receive them in whatever packaging they arrive in, which could be anyone of the above companies.
We are currently bidding on a parcel of 155mm Floating & Sinking in four more colours.
This lure is yet another in a long line of needle fish copies, however it casts well, moves well & most importantly it catches fish well.
But this is not just a Bass lure, we've had some good Pollock over the rocks & one customer had a 3lb Ballan Wrasse on one. It is however in warmer waters where this lure really excels, on our latest winter research & development trip (winter holiday) we caught Jacks, Snapper, Bonito, Barracuda & small Tarpon on these lures.
This lure is interestingly rigged with a black chrome 4 X size 2 on the tail & a tinned/galvanised 4 X size 4 on the belly.
Mixed hook presentation is something I have favored for many years with great success.
This lure casts very well for a plastic lure under 1oz, It casts straight & long, even in a good wind.
Best results are achieved when fishing clear water, on a fairly flat to moderate sea.
This lure doesn't do so good in heavy surf, for this we have other lures on other pages
Mann's Disco Dawg This lure is an old favourite for Bass & many other species that will take a top water all over the world.
It will "walk the dog" with light but sharp twitches "rod down" & skitters about all over the place with heavier rod movements & "rod up".
It casts well, accurately & is a subtle top water with only a gentle splashing action.
They come standard with Eagle Claw size 4 tinned trebles.
They weigh in at 3/8ozs, 10.5g, are 3.5" / 90mm long
