Products > S85 Spoonbill

Spoonbill is a versatile general purpose lure. In the tropics it's effective on mangrove creek species and can double as a trolling lure for a range of open water fish from bluefish (tailor) to trevally.
Here are the McSea (MC) and Aussie Gold (AG) patterns.


The mangrove jack is a fantastic fish and the Spoonbill is a perfect lure to catch it. Jacks hang out in snaggy territory and can take a heavy toll on lures. The Spoonbill can dive quickly into the strike zone amongst the timber and draw a jack's attention. You need quick reflexes to stop the fish before it hangs you in the cover.
This one fell for a Barra Blue (BB) pattern.

Lucky snap - and we don't mean photo! Check the wire snap which opened but luckily held long enough to bring in this Bensbach barra on a RedHead 'qantas' (RH) spoonbill.
