If anyone has used these lures or know anyone does, any information on it will be helpful. They are promoted as ultimate Barramundi lures.

Tathagata,

I have not used anything other than their Roosta Poppers. Yes, those poppers work well for GTs, I have hooked some big GTs on those poppers, but never landed them :-(

They're nice lures with a nice profile, strong action and great hook exposure. Definatly a good choice for Aussie barra, where much of the fishing is done in the mangroves at close range. The problem with them is that they are very light and boyant, which means that they wont cast any real distance.
I've had a couple in my tackle box for the last two India trips that I've made. They won't have a plce this time around.

hi !!!
I have been using Halco Lures since 2 yrs now.
Used them for Mahaseer and Bara's.
They do get scrached very easly but have an amazing action.
Go for them. Even Dean may also be of some help he has used these in Goa.

Cheers !!!
M

rapala lures seem to be pretty popular for bass - would that make them good for barramundi ? :roll:
