Tackle & Techniques / Re: Rapala Z-Rap Magnum Xplode
« Last post by Chris Dennis on June 05, 2018, 02:40:53 AM »
I've picked up a black / silver (Convict !) one to have a look at in a bit more detail.

Those VMC hooks weigh just shy of 12g, about the same as an ST66 5/0. The wiring is ever so slightly thicker but not much in it. Not a hook i use these days in this size and certainly not a hook for S Oman.

It will just about take 2 x BKK GT Rex 5/0 (14g)  but probably better with the 4/0 ST76 (13g) as it is quite a compact lure.

I'm looking forward to using it as it will not get shredded by the hooks and waterlogged like my go to Cuberas.

Hi guys. we fished with the Rapala poppers in Southern Oman and cannot recommend them highly enough. landed some amazing fish and the poppers sat beautifully in some choppy seas. Casting was excellent. You cannot compare their casting ability to the Halcos.. They cast like a dream. definitely part of my tackle bag for all future trips. VMC hooks held up ok i guess.. one hook opened  after landing a couple of fish so an idea to change the hooks if you'd like.. White and black poppers took a beating on this trip.. for their price, you are going to battle to find a better popper in my opinion.

I crimp the barbs down of my trebles when GT Popping after an incompetent guide in Cuba tried to lasso a 100lb Lemon Shark round it head while a friend was still attached to it.
Outcome 1 broken rod and a Shark swimming away with a mouthful of Barbed trebles.
You never know when something may happen whilst fishing however careful you are .
the fish may break you off on the reef.

General Topwater & Jigging Discussion / Saumarez Reef Trip July
« Last post by Brett Methven on May 15, 2018, 03:02:00 PM »
Hey Guys,

Heading out on Big Cat Reality for the 3rd year now and we had planned to hit Kenn Reef in search of some monster dogs but aparently they have now zoned half of it and it's not wort our trip to spend 6 days fishing 6 tenders on such a small section of reef... This has made us change reefs and having fished cato, wreck and fredricks we have decided to give Saumarez a crack.  I'm just wondering if anyone has been out there at all?  I already know the dogtooth population is 2nd to none out there but the fish sheem to be pretty small... has anyone had experience in pulling a beast or 2 from the rats in locations like this or do they ten to nly school in similar sizes?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers Guys!
