B80D — Boomerang

Predatek B80D Boomerang fishing lure in Purple Thing colours
This is the lure that started our business in 1986.

Championship lure
Our designer used a few handmade 80mm wooden Boomerangs to win the 1987 Australian Inland Fishing Championships. The publicity from that success fueled demand for the Boomerang and enabled Predatek (then Downunder Lures) to establish a reputation for innovative, high performance fishing lure designs.

Classic design
The 80mm Boomerang is now universally recognised as a classic Australian fishing lure.


 

"I've used Downunder (Predatek) Lures since the first wooden Boomerangs. They work wonderfully well in fresh or saltwater; they're built by people who know what they're doing and I couldn't name a more versatile lure, either local or imported."


Vic McCristal (Fishing Author) 1928-2015

Walk it over structure

Work it slowly among snags for cod and golden perch. Feel the big bib bump into snags and pause......the Boomerang will reverse clear of the obstruction and you can then continue to retrieve. The pause is often the trigger for Australian native fish to strike.

 

Troll over the tops of shallow reefs for coral trout and snapper.

Murray cod, golden perch, barramundi, mangrove jack, coral trout, trevally

Papuan black bass, spot-tail bass, northern pike
