I can testify to that - one of the most effective lures I have ever come upon for coral trout
If it swims; I want to catch it!

Would that be the sinking or floating?

They work on NZ kings no worries .Mainly floating models and my preference is for the limited flying fish colour. we have another brand here also called Starwalker from the same factory but different colours than the limited they are just as good again I prefer the larger floating size. Sinkers for the days when the water is rough.

I've had YFT on them, I also had a large whale shark swallow one.. well it landed in it's mouth whilst it was engulfing anchovies that the tuna were feeding on, so it does not count it's just a funny story.

When fishing for whale sharks its not necessary to make long cast. This one's from central queensland not WA

My cast was on the money, right into the boiling anchovies, unfortunately the whale shark breached vertically at the same time and my green gunz sailed right into its open maw....gulp.

Brandon, it went as hard as whale shark could go i guess, amazingly it stayed on the surface slashing about and put a nice bend into my LR88, but of course my leader was about 5m too short for him and it pinged me pretty quickly on PE6. A very funny experience.

Hi Alex,

My experience with Gunz is only on GT. An excellent stickbait action to induce hit but it's wiring material remain very prone to corrosion and break off after 2days if you don't flush it with fresh water after you are done with your casting for the day.

It could be that particular batch that I have problem with but I stop using Gunz until I can accept to them as disposable lure after 1 day of use.

Regards
Sam

 :(We had the same problem in August at Bugetti reef on Nomad. Brand new sinking Gunz straight out of the packet, first cast hooked onto a solid GT after 5 minutes the battle was over. We inspected the lure to find that the center wire snapped. They are great lure but would like the wire beefed up :-\
