LIVE YABBIE

The Live Yabbie is an intricate, realistic Yabbie profile lure, with an extremely well balanced natural sink rate that fish find completely irresistible. The Live Yabbie is an example of a purpose designed and built lure. The process started with plenty of debate and discussion and any number of draughts before a final design was chosen for prototype. The initial testing was very successful- the fish devoured it. A few tweaks refined the initial design, and shortly after concept, version 2 was ready for testing. Pro Lure engaged some high profile tournament anglers as part of the testing regime and they were nothing short of astonished with the results. Not only were they catching fish, they were catching tournament winning monsters over the Kilo plus mark consistently. Needless to say, the Live Yabbie quickly became one of Pro Lures most sought after lures. This is a heads up for all Bream specialists. The Live Yabbie is an exceptional lure for targeting exceptional Bream.

Live Yabbie Tips

  • The Live Yabbie will work with a range of jighead weights, from very light hidden-weight jig heads, to heavy
    jigheads.
  • Select the right weight for the structure you are fishing. A 1/28oz or 1/40oz Sz2 hidden weight is perfect
    for a slow sink rate presentation. A 1/20 – 1/12 regular jighead is a good starting point for fishing deeper sections.
  • Target likely fish holding structure, and cast as close to the structure as possible. This lure is dynamite around
    man-made structure such as pontoons, jetties, bridges and boat hulls.
  • Don’t discount the Live Yabbie on open water and flats. It has proven tournament results fishing deeper water
    targeting schooled bream on a regular jighead.
  • Fish the Live Yabbie slowly. The lure is so realistic, you don’t need to give it much action! 
    The Live Yabbie has been proven to attract very large Bream. It pays to be ultra-vigilant when fishing racks and
    snags on super light gear. .
