ZMan HerculeZ Swimbait Review
In an increasingly expensive world, getting value for money with your tackle has never been more important. Whilst not particularly new on the market, brands like ZMan have found ways to help consumers in this department… Namely, by making soft plastics out of much stronger, hardier materials, which enables anglers to catch fish after fish without needing to replace the plastic.
Irukandji Sicario - Tom Crittenden
In 2023, it’s fair to say that the market is flooded with soft plastics of all shapes and sizes… Paddle-tail styles account for a significant proportion of this, and rightly so… Time and time again, they have proven themselves to be one of the most versatile and dominant profiles on a range of predatory species in both salt and freshwater environments.
Yamaga Blue Sniper - Shore Casting Range
Once you go Japanese, you never go back… right? Well, that’s certainly the case when it comes to high end rods, the Yamaga Blue Sniper! If you’re a keen land based angler and like the sound of sensitive, lightweight rods with stacks of power, then I’d strongly suggest reading on…
Marlin Off The Rocks
There are few niches in fishing that require the mental endurance, and sheer line hours spent for every encounter, let alone capture, like that of Land Based Game fishing (LBG). One could very easily be committed, when calculating the time, money and sun exposure spent between each notable fish landed, but as an LBG angler, it is an irrevocable situation. But, LBG like many forms of fishing can be broken down even further, where anglers may focus their efforts on a particular species, and the jewel in the crown of LBG is to land the mighty Black Marlin from the rocks.
Deepwater Winter Snapper
If you ask any avid anglers what their preferred winter target is a lot of them will single out the glorious snapper. This highly sought after species is a prime candidate for most anglers due to their accessibility for land based and small boat owners, with amazing fighting capabilities on the right gear. Winter provides the slower trickle of current to fish and (usually) calmer weather days to target these ‘reds’ in the deep – a depth which I use significantly different tactic to targeting them in the shallows. I classify ‘deepwater’ anything from 50m to 100m +.
