How to Choose the Right Fishing Lure For These Top 5 Australian Fish

One of the most essential tools in an angler's arsenal is the fishing lure. With a plethora of fish species in Australia choosing the right lure can be a daunting task. Here at LandCaster Tackle we've compiled a fishing lure guide to help you select the perfect lure for five popular Australian fish species: Bream, Flathead, Salmon, Snapper, and Australian Bass.

1. Bream:

  • Environment: Bream are versatile fish that inhabit estuaries, rivers, and coastal areas. They often hide around structures like rocks, oyster beds, and pier structures.
  • Lure Choice: Given their habitat soft plastics and vibe baits that mimic small baitfish, crabs, or prawns are effective. LandCaster Tackle offers a range of soft plastics that are ideal for enticing Bream out of their hiding spots.

2. Flathead:

  • Environment: Flathead are bottom-dwelling fish found in sandy or muddy estuaries and coastal bays. They camouflage themselves in the substrate waiting to ambush prey. Flathead can also be found in the surf gutters.
  • Lure Choice: Soft plastic fishing lures that mimic small fish or prawns work wonders. LandCaster Tackle's range of paddle-tail soft plastics which create vibrations when retrieved can attract the attention of a lurking Flathead.

3. Salmon:

  • Environment: Australian Salmon are pelagic fish often found in schools around beaches, rocky headlands, and estuaries.
  • Lure Choice: Metal slugs or slice jigs that mimic small baitfish are effective for Salmon. The shiny and fast-moving lures from LandCaster Tackle can trigger the predatory instincts of Salmon leading to exciting strikes.

4. Snapper:

  • Environment: Snapper inhabit nearshore and offshore reefs and rocky structures. They are known for their strong fights and are a favorite among anglers.
  • Lure Choice: Soft plastics, jigs, and deep-diving vibe baits that mimic squid or small fish are ideal. LandCaster Tackle's range of jigs with their enticing movements can be irresistible to Snapper while bottom bouncing.

5. Australian Bass:

  • Environment: Australian Bass are freshwater fish commonly found in rivers, streams, and impoundments with clear water and rocky or woody structures.
  • Lure Choice: Vibes and soft plastics that mimic insects or small fish are very effective. Topwater bass fishing lures are also very effective. LandCaster Tackle's Bass Fishing Lure range of soft plastics can entice aggressive strikes from Bass.
