The classic baitfish shape of the Gillies Baitfish Metal lure will bring alive any fish species that locks eyes on it. When retrieved at a slow pace, it will dart through the water like a wounded baitfish fleeing from the school, and it will entice tailor and salmon to take it in. On the other hand, you can crank this little lure back at pace, and it is sure to entice bonito, tuna and mackerel to have a go at it.
The Gillies offers an incredibly realistic baitfish profile that has proven itself in both salt and freshwater. They are such a versatile lure that they can also be used to chase trout in rivers and dams.
You can also use them for slow jigging, as well as spinning or trolling, whether it’s from boats, shore, reef, surf, estuary, lake, stream or rocks. For best results, vary speed and angle of retrieve, and choose different colours to match the available baitfish in the area.
If the fish are feeding on a small-sized lure, this is where the smaller profile comes into play.
