A high quality lure designed to catch killer fish!
The floating version is perfectly balanced to achieve the dynamic, strike enducing ‘S’ shaped swimming motion. A long sweep of the rod tip makes the head duck under with a splash, then as the water flows over the lures body a seductive body roll and ‘S’ wave action is imparted sub-surface.
The sinking variety has the internal weights placed to maximise casting but also to allow the lure to be retrieved with a sub surface walk the dog action, which sees the lure able to turn nearly 180 degrees when retrieved slowly with a walk the dog “twitching” rod tip action.
- Made from HD ABS plastic
- Gorilla Through Wire
- Weight placed in the tail for easy casting
- Thick stainless steel metal plate
- Foam filled body
- Super tough triple layer clear coat finish
- Fitted with high quality super strong BKK hooks
The size range covers 125mm, 155mm, 200mm and 265mm models in floating and sinking, meaning that whether you are chasing barra on a surface walker up a river, salmon, tailor and kingies from the rocks, tuna offshore, or casting for GTs and dogtooth, there is a Riptide lure perfectly suited to the task.
*The Riptide 265mm is supplied unrigged. We recommend using 2 x 12/0 BKK DEEP 6X hooks on the belly, rigged back to back, and a BKK DEEP 6X size 12/0 with double split rings on the tail. Alternately, a pair of 7/0 BKK GT Rex barbless trebles should be used.
