    Re: Best lure for Yellow Belly

    G'day Summy...thers heaps a lures that'll catch yellas and cod. The biggest problem I had when I started looking was the point you just made.

    "Im not sure you can get them any more".

    The reason I like boomerangs and Poltergiest lures, is that you can walk into just about any tackle shop and buy one at a reasonable price and know they will work.

    Thats right Stonecold. They are both great lures and work well. I have moved to Hervey Bay so I dont get to use all the lures I bought for chasing natives. However I have picked up some nice reefies including trout trolling boomerangs over the shallow reefs.

    Summy12.... Fletty who owns Mudeye lures is still in full production. He has moved location but still flat out crafting timber lures. Do a google search and you will find his details.

    Thanks Scott that's great. I knew Jamie's father when I worked out at Copeton Dam. He used to make a great little cod lure called "The Old Man". Jamie makes a very good lure. Highly recommend them.

    Dennis pulled some monters out of the river around Inverell. Plenty of them pretty close to town if I remember correctly. Excellent fisherman. Always happy to give abit of advice as well.

    Ah I've caught hundreds of Hellas (no boast) on my own version of the old Celta spinners . I was living at Chinchilla at the time and you couldn't buy celtas at the time as shops stopped stocking them , so I set about crafting my own , and wow what success I had.

    I will try and find one and post a pic.
    One more thing. I can't understand why the new spinnerbaits are such complicated contraptions . Wow what a mess if you get it snagged!
    Any decent single shaft spinner will catch as many.

    I did. Good ole yellas.
    I have found an interesting way to pull the trebles out of a big cod though.

    Re: Best lure for Yellow Belly

    I just ordered a few of those CELTA style lures from the USA in various sizes.

    They're under the 'spinnerbait' range there and aren't the larger, bulky spinner bait contraptions that we know here. They are a smaller, more compact celta style.

    I met a bloke at Mitchell the other day (now that the river is down) and he had a couple of rods set up wth "purple" lures.

    One was a boomerang shaped 'crawdad' looking lure and the other one was a chunky purple spinner bait. 'Ole mate says he catches yellas on both of 'em.
