    After reading about this lure SO MANY times on Peche au Bar forum, and all of those comments were good.I have finally managed to get my sticky mitts on one.
    It is a sinking 105mm/15g jerkbait. Can't wait to see if it lives up to it's rep on Peche au Bar.

    Nice lures Dave! I've only used mine a couple of times, but not properly in anger yet. Look stunning in the flesh don't they!! Loving all the Jackson lures I've used so far to be honest!!

    Now thats strange that they say to work them hard, because looking at the size of the bib it would suggest it would have its own wobble going on.... but if the french recon c'est mayeur (spelling) comme ca then I recon they are probably correctimont (Delboy french).

    Looks the business, Tunny. Come onw here did you get them? Also, as it is a sinking lure, yet has a big lip how do you control the depth? (my inexperience showing here as all the lures I own are floating lures!)

    You don't need to worry mate. As you retrieve, sinking lures come in at a standard depth (which can even be very shallow), just like a floater. They're just more stable in rough conditions, and obviously sink when stopped. If they're moving though there's very little difference.

    Tim,
    It is the size of the bib, and it's angle that control the depth it will fish at. More than the fact it is a sinking lure. You can vary the depth of the retrieve, by varying the speed of the retrieve. Fast retrieve, general ly will keep the lure high in the water, slow things down and it will work deeper.

    Scratch that Ben has just put it far better than I could.

    Thanks, Guys! Only sinking lure I've seen before is that Smith Saruna that MosseyDog loves so much. Still not an area of lures I have explored yet. Until September last year I had never even fished diving lures :rollineyes:
    Jackson lures are getting a lot of coverage recently. Am I missing something?

    Some of them are really good.
    They are new as in ...

    They are now available via a UK distributor.

    I had some very good fish on a few select lures from the range in the latter
    part of the season. Still got a load to test but so far, the range is impressive.

    So basically yes, you could be missing out.
    But no one is hiding anything if you know what I mean.

    OSP and Dice lures are available too I believe.
    The OSP Rudra me and Nathan keep going about is a dead set winner
    for 2010.

    Keith,
    Rudra and Asura susending versions both look real good to me. Will have to check out the Dice lures.

    Jackson lures as Keith said have had a probably unfairly low profile due as Keith said to no one importing them. They have some interesting lures.
