Well seeing there is not a lot of action in this section, thought I would post a few shots of the lures I have accumalated over the last 6 months, and several hundred $$$. Still waiting for my first fish off a hard body, but am determined to make it work.

Rapalas...



Sebile Lures....



Very happy with the Sebile lures, they ar definately a quality product, now just need some fish to repay my investment Embarrassed

Some of those sebiles must have come from offshore.... I have been trying to get them here but they ain't bringing them all in! :-)
I am hoping to get one or two of the real deep diving sebiles soon, 60ft jobbies. That could be very interesting.

Oh, Brown Dog, the rapala lures, are some of them with bronzed hooks? They may be a bit light for saltwater fishing here mate, perhaps look at re-rigging with small....maybe owner trebles or something? little size 1/0 owners or something? The light bronze hooks are OK for fresh water, but in salt they are just "instarust".

Thanks for the tip Capt, all but 2 of the Rapalas have bronze hooks, apart from rusting any other problems or are they just too light?? Thought the Max Raps where set up for Salt Water, no rusting on any of the hooks yet.

Max Raps and Saltwater Xraps all bought on Ebay, think I got the Rapala Deep Tail Dancer on Trade Me. Scored 2 x Sebile Koolie Minnow & 2 x Slim Sticks + 2 x poppers for $50 on Trade Me!! (killer deal). Magic Swimmers bought in NZ, got the 1.5ounce from FCO and the pink 3/4 on Trade Me.

Any more advice and tips welcome. thought the Max Raps where set up for Salt Water
