- ON THE WATER
The Hunchback 90 has an epic surface crawling action designed for one thing only - to target big surface feeding Murray Cod. The lure design inspired the Hunchback name, as the tail of the lure hunches around and down to allow the rear point of the lure to sit below the surface giving excellent hook up rates, an area that a lot of surface lures fall short. In conjunction with the hook-up specific design of the lure we fit the Hunchback out with super sharp BKK 3X trebles for big strength as well as further promoting excellent hook up rates.
Also featuring a clip off bib which makes for convenient storage, any Murray Cod surface crawler with a bit of size is next to impossible to store in a standard tackle box making the clip off bib super handy.
One of the most important pieces of information to note with our LED technology is that it works brilliantly during daylight hours, at night the results can vary depending on a number of different factors such as the species of fish as well as the mood of the fish on the day. Night time fishing with the LED can be either excellent or the LED can become too bright and overwhelming for the fish, which is why we've developed an After Dark colour which has a significantly reduced LED for night time use. The significantly reduced LED in the After Dark works incredibly well, it is the perfect brightness for night time to ensure the best possible results are achieved from the lure.
Next time you're going surface fishing try out the Balista Hunchback, every feature is designed to promote more Murray Cod striking the lure, and more fish hooking up.
