We gave the Halco Twisty lure a go and came out trumps
During the peak of the winter season, we took a trip down to Gunnamatta Ocean Beach for some surf fishing action in hopes of landing a few Australian Salmon.
For surf fishing, I like to be versatile and carry as minimal as possible to work the beach back and forth while casting metal lures. As reported in my earlier fishing reports (‘Chasing down Australian Salmon at Gunnamatta ocean beach‘) while we were down there, we used Chrome Halco Twisty metal lures in both 70g and 55g weights.
I absolutely loved these lures! we were able to cast well past the break of the surf onto deeper water. Where the Salmon were occupying and work the lure with various retrieves. I found working these lures relatively fast the Australian Salmon would come up and smash them.
The curved design allows it to have an enticing swimming pattern and create plenty of splashing action on the surface of the water.
Fishing during clear daylight conditions Halco twisty throws off plenty of reflection in the water due to its coated body and holographic film. Once the Salmon was hooked we found it very easy to handle. As we picked it by the lure itself before using lip grips.
Tough long-lasting exterior, there isn’t much not to love about this lure. In my opinion, a must-have lure when it comes to surf spinning and worth well fishing off rock walls.
