D120 — Downunder Boomerang
Big cod lure - A nod to our heritage
We started making lures under the 'Downunder Lures' banner in 1986 and our first lure, now a classic, was the 80mm Downunder Boomerang. Now it has a big brother, the D120 Downunder Magnum Boomerang. It complements the Jabberwok surface lure to make a fine duo for large Murray cod in rivers or the shallow (0-4m) margins of impoundments. It's also a great choice for other big predators in Australia like barramundi and mulloway.
Super strong one-piece body
Tough polycarbonate bib (clear or black)
Heavy duty 2/0 VMC hooks
Unique swing blade for flash & sound
8 proven fish-catching colours
Comfortable for prolonged one-handed casting
Steep descent rate
Runs 3-4 metres deep on a cast
Runs deeper when trolling
(depending on line length and diameter)
Buoyancy to back off from snags
Strong action transmits to the rod
The Downunder is moulded in one piece with the stainless steel eyelets embedded. It's puncture-proof.
Our experience has been that most Murray cod strike the belly hook of our other lures, so we've hung both 2/0 trebles on the belly of the Downunder. This allows us to do something different with the tail eyelet—add a flashing swing blade as an extra attractant.
Big and bigger but still easy to cast
Like the Jabberwok surface lure, the Downunder has a body length of 120mm and the bulk required to attract trophy Murray cod over 1 metre. You'll appreciate that it's not tiresome for long sessions of one-handed casting. It has a strong action that can be felt at the rod tip.
For those occasions when monster fish are on the cards (e.g. Lake Copeton where the Downunder Boomerang story was born), you can have a Downunder that has an even bigger appearance without the overhead of extra weight and casting effort. How? Use a Downunder with a black bib. The increased apparent length and width of the lure make it a bigger target for bigger fish.
