Some new lures on the market now with decent seaway fishing potential, check out the lures below I've added videos where possible.
Zipbaits System Minnow 15F - 150mm, Floating, 26.5gms
A big floating shallow diving minnow, one of the closest pilchard imitations I've seen. Looks like it would be ideal for wash fishing especially at the top of the tide when you can get right into the rocks. Ideal for The Edge prospecting. Hardware is good with #3 Owner St46 as standard. An expensive minnow though at around $30-35.00. I'll be getting one for testing during the summer months. Some nice colours in the range though the Hologram Sardine(pictured) is the standout.
A sinking pencil lure, has an excellent flash and a nice wobble on the sink. Should work well on the flats and working the Face with a decent sink time. No real standout colours though, I'd probably go with the Sahari Joker colour(pictured). The hardware looks good with #3 ST 46 as standard. Price is around $30-35.00.
A medium sinking diver with a good wobbling action, would be a good lure for the flats and prospecting around the front of the walls. #6 ST46 are standard, these are a bit light for seaway fish, probably better off upgrading to #6 ST56. Price is around $25.00. A nice range of colours with Sand Borer(pictured) my favourite.
A sinking pencil designed for long casts during strong winds, very streamlined and has a nice wobble on the sink with a slalom S action on a standard retrieve. Standard hooks may be a bit light being only #6 ST46, might need to upgrade those to ST56. Superb colour range with many nice colours including a nice garfish imitation 'Ohnago'(pictured). Price is around $25.00.
