Halco has released a new lure that is ideal for barramundi fishing.
The Halco Hamma is a clear-bodied, suspending casting lure supplied with two, easily interchangeable bibs.
The bibs give running depths of 1m and 3m respectively.
It is built to give maximum flexibility in one easy to fish package.
Halco says the Hamma was designed from the ground up to tackle black bass, mangrove jack, tigerfish and tarpon.
It features a realistic baitfish profile, with a specially designed weight
It has a transfer system for great casting ability and super sharp, extra strong Mustad trebles for maximum holding potential, plus heavy duty fish rings.
In the water the Hamma’s deeper bib has an enticing, tight swimming action with a subtle phase shift mid-cycle that can be used to mimic a wounded bait fish.
The shallow bib however is purpose built for highly erratic twitch retrieves and suspends during the pause for maximum hook up potential on territorial, aggressive species.
The detailed scale pattern and holographic finish are all internal of the lure for optimal durability and the ultra smooth outer surface ensure toothy critters can’t get a
decent hold on the lure helping the hook set on the strike.
The lure weighs 28g, is 123mm long and will be available in seven new colours.

We had all rigged up on the way out in anticipation of the first drop. Sea Reaper pulled up on the first mark and said he was checking the drift. I dropped down, as soon as the bait hit the bottom I was onto a double header of red emperor.”
