FISHTAIL

Pro Lure was determined to develop a Lure that would become the ultimate go to lure for targeting Mulloway. A lure that will catch Mulloway consistently has become a Holy Grail for lure designers. We wanted to produce a lure that we could, not only use to draw out stationary fish from structure, but also allow the angler to work larger areas, more swiftly, where fish might be actively moving and feeding. We wanted a lure that would be highly visible in the dirty run off water, as this is where we like to target fish feeding on the bait that is being pushed down river following rain. All objectives for the Fishtail have been achieved. We now have the go to Mulloway lure- It’s the Pro Lure Fishtail. The Pro Lure Fishtail is a must for all serious Mulloway anglers and, for all those who target deep estuarine predators.

How and Where to use the Fishtail

The Paddle Tail is and inshore special and can fished anywhere that holds fish. A key feature of the Fishtail is that it was designed with a broad body profile and large paddle style tail, to give a wide action. This is brilliant for reflecting light when rolled under bridge lighting at night and at dawn and dusk when light levels are really low.

FISHTAIL Tips

  • Target river and estuary Mulloway at night using the ambient light from civic structures such as wharfs, bridges and break walls especially around the tide changes
  • Use the bigger Fishtails (105mm,130mm) when targeting big fish, particularly when you’re hunting huge Flathead
  • When hunting for record book Flathead, try a smaller Fishtail like the 80mm to assess if there are Flathead in the area. If you get a smaller Flatty, change up to the 130mm. There are monster Lizards there, you must persist.
  • The Fishtail is a Mulloway special. If you expect your location holds Jew, drop a Fishtail to the bottom and start with a
    slow to medium retrieve with a few hops and pauses. Be ready to strike at even the slightest inquiry as jewfish are
    known for softly tapping the lure.
