    Looking to try some bigger (and hopefully good casting) topwaters next season. I was wondering if anyone on here had any experience of lures like the TackleHouse Britt,
    The Maria Loaded, Tailwalk Gunz. Basically 140-160mm ~50g
    Whats good, whats bad??

    Da*n good point that Simon,
    Yeap the Magnum Z Claw is definately a good option, and seen a few videos of them getting spanked by bass in France. Very good call Simon, Cheers.

    Another one for the list Tiemco Magnum Red Pepper??

    Agreed. Bonnie 128 in Bone is a cracker. You are probably looking for bigger than that though????

    Yeap Crevan MUCH bigger, Agree though that the bonnie is a good lure, and often overlooked.

    When I get back from El Salvador, have a look at the monsters I got from the states! I am not sure if they are really going to be bass lures but they sure look good!

    dave i was at nantes last year and i asked hubert he is a guide for ultimate fishing what was the latest lure and he showed me the britt and gave me a demo in the tank it looked really good.i bought 4 of them and to be honest i only used 1 of them once.i was put off my the size of the hooks and was meaning to change them but never did.i was looking at them today thinking i must change the hooks maybe this year?.i think they use them for tuna according to some reviews i read i hope this helps.

    Cheers Guys,
    The Bomber Pencil is a better made version of the old Cotton Cordel Pencil, very good value.
    Pat, you are right the Tackle House Britt was desined for blue water fishing (tuna/dorado), but it is a nice size to mimic a mackerel. I know from experience just how big a mackerel even a 3lb bass will inhale. So I am thinking that larger surface lure might put the schoolies off a bit and give the larger fish a chance.

    Nice lures Mark,
    Been looking at the Super Finder Jerk, and the 190sr from Lucky Craft as they have been reveiewed on a couple of blog sites recently. Strangely the Daiwa SLS17S out casts them both, but the author has been doing well with the Finder bass wise. About 19euros for the Finder isn't too bad either.

    Dave/Ritchie,

    These may be of interest to you although they are aimed at the Striper Bass.
    The fat boy sliders are 7 inches and weight 82gms, the stubby needles are 5 1/2 inches and weigh 45 gms and the junior needles are 8 inches and weight 60 gms.

    Waiting for the poppers to arrive and will post pictures of them for you when I have them to hand.
