Whether you are fishing in salt or freshwater, the Predatek Spoonbill 85mm is right at home. It is Predatek’s most versatile lure, sized to attract a range of predators like barra, mangrove jack, trevally, estuary cod, Murray cod, golden perch, bass, etc. The sleek shape and length, plus weighing in at 14 grams, makes it cast and troll like a dream.
The rugged Spoonbill is named for its broad, scooped lip. It swims in a narrow, panicky manner that turns on killer instincts in the fish. It comes complete with a loud rattle and a striking pattern. Try casting it close to structure like fallen trees, rocks, weed beds, coral rock formations and drop-offs.
When ripped down, the bib will take the lure down quickly, giving you the maximum time in the strike zone. As you retrieve or troll this lure, you will need to remember to pause it every now and then. Once it has stopped, give the lure a jerk to excite the fish into smashing it. Even though it can dive to 4.5 metre, you can also use the "walk-the-dog" technique across the surface.
