REIDY'S GOULBURN JACK

$13.60

At 90mm the Goulburn Jack is a 5 metre version of the popular taipan mid size lure, suitable for Barra and smaller species as well.  It is a deep depth lure with a tight wobble, but a little more body roll than the Taipan, more suited to retrieves such as slow rolling, pull and pause, pull down float up, and trolling.  It weighs in at 16.5g so is probably best suited for line classes 30lb and under.  By shaking the lure it appears to include a single ball bearing of around 2-3mm.  The bib is unique in it's shape with 2 lobes on the front, apparently to reduce snagging.  Having 2 tow points, this lure can be made to do very strange things.  On the bib tow point the lure dives deep and takes around 6 seconds to float up, but on the nose tow point this lure is wild.  This causes the lure to have a spastic action, and virtually no dive, resulting in an active subsurface lure with a wounded appearance.  With slow speed pulls the lure pulls to the side in a very jerky manner, leaving a distinctive pattern on the water's surface.  Try fishing the lure this way in areas suitable for surface fizzers, frogs, and poppers.  MH
