We reached out to 15 of the country’s top guides and pros—you know, the guys who get paid to reel in largemouths, smallmouths, trout, crappie, cats, walleyes, striped bass, and more—and asked them about what they rely on most to catch big fish come some. Here are their answers. You’d better clear room in your tackle box.

1. Bomber Badonk-A-Donk SS

“My go-to for nighttime tarpon in the summer is Bomber’s Badonkadonk SS,” says Captain Robert Trosset, a Florida tarpon captain. “It sinks slowly and has a really natural action underwater when you start twitching. For whatever reason, when the tarpon in the channels won’t touch anything else, I’ll get a fish to hit one of these lures.”

The new Yo-Zuri Sashimi Bull Metallic long casting popper.

Yo-Zuri has quite a few new innovations in their recently-released lure lines, for both fresh and salt water. Many of the lines have been completely redesigned for 2013. Recently, Florida Sportsman editors met with Yo-Zuri’s George Large, the man in charge of product development for the company. Editors wanted to see what’s new, what’s changed and what’s working best for Florida anglers. Though not many people know his name, George Large has had his hand in the development of many of Florida’s favorite fishing lures over his long career working for a few top lure makers.

Lures targeted for Malaysian fresh water fishes

We often find very monotonous designs and colors for lures in most of the shops. A lure like lets say the Minnow. This lure has been around from the time the bait caster was introduced.

The lure is recognised and identified by its slender althletic aerodynamics. A more juiced up minnow if I may. A minnow that appears with a plastic tongue that orchestrates the diving depth.

Another lure would be the shad too. This lure is a good one to use in shallow waters. I find a shad painted in orange to be the best kind of shad ever. Fishes snap at it for its gold fish like qualities.


With a bevy of these kind of lures with their multi coloured  (yet generic) schemes one would think the Malaysian (or asian) angler would be satisfied by making do with the options. This has led to alot of anglers buying a whole palette of colours to just find the right colour. Do note that in some instances these lures cost a small fortune.

This does not work out well with the shops too as there will be a huge excess of lures that simply don’t work. Where after some time we find that there will be a bargain bin of cheap premium lures that simply don’t work. How do we solve this and what do we do?

Berkley has made an attempt. These are the results. We quite like it to be honest.

Caesar’s Collection

Hi all,

I’d like to highlight a couple of interesting stuff that my fishing buddy Caesar has. One would be a lure with a story, another is a peculiar freshwater lure.

This lure had some serious bite marks on it. A deep diving sea lure. Anyone have any guesses?

I am quite fascinated that there is a freshwater lure that size. Any ideas on what are you going after with a lure like that?

Hope you had good fun over the holidays. We here at fishmalaysia.com are just warming up!
