Species Product Guide
Balista is located in Shepparton in Northern Victoria the heart of Murray Cod fishing, so its no surprise that we have a comprehensive range of Murray Cod lures. The new Smoke 80 is a belter on Murray Cod, its an 80mm/5 metre deep diver the unique rolling action of this lure is what sets it apart from any other hardbody on the market. The Dyno 90 is a completely different type of deep diver, it is 90mm and dives to 7 metres with a more traditional slow and wide action. The Hunchback 90 is our surface crawler for targeting big surface feeding Murray Cod, its 90mm in length the tail on the lure is designed to sit really low giving exceptional hook up rates. The Juggernaut lipless crankbait in both sizes are great for Cod, just cast them at the desired structure allowing them to sink into the zone, and hold on!

Firestorm 120 ShallowThe best barra lure all-rounder that we have in the range, the 3 foot diver is ideal in a wide variety of scenarios from casting flats to impoundment trolling. With the LED technology in the tail you will not find better lures for barramundi fishing, especially in dirty water.
S-PopThe S-Pop surface popper creates surface havoc pushing a tonne of water whilst splurging water out its holographic gills. Featuring our LED technology this 80mm surface popper packs some serious punch.
TriggerA killer barra lure when the fish are looking for a smaller profile, the 75mm suspending minnow is ideal for cranking down next to structure allowing the LED to flash in the fishes face, so many times the barra slam the LED whilst its suspending there flashing.
Smoke 80The very first lure we ever made, the 5 metre diver is one of our best Murray Cod lures, whether you're casting or trolling the Dyno 75 has you covered. The neutral buoyancy is a rare quality in a Cod lure and particularly deadly when used on the cast.
Smoke 65The smallest Dyno in the range has a killer action, the 60mm diver is known for working through structure brilliantly and generating strikes when nothing else is working.
Juggernaut 65The slow sink rate of the Juggernaut 65 works perfectly for those tough bites, you don't want the lure sinking out of the strike zone too quickly. Featuring our trademark LED technology the 65mm lipless crankbait is deadly for drawing a strike when nothing else is working.
Juggernaut 90If you're casting drop offs, timber or rock banks for Murray Cod or Barramundi the 90mm Juggernaut is ideal, the 28 gram lipless crankbait gets down deep and fast. Your other option with the Juggernaut is deep water jigging, this has become hugely popular for Threadfin Salmon and Snapper. Hinchinbrook charter Ryan Moody - we catch 80-90% of our Threadfin Salmon deep water jigging with the Juggernaut 90, given threadies are known for having poor eye sight it makes sense that they are swimming around our plastics to hit the LED.
CycloneVersatile is the easiest way to describe the Cyclone, the buoyancy allows the lure to be worked through heavy timber making this lure a great choice for targeting large Murray Cod in more shallow conditions. A beauty for Barramundi fishing as well, this slim medium profile and action is best suited when more depth is required than the usual 1 metre barra lures. 110mm in length and dives to 3 metres.
