Every angler has their favourite lure. One they trust and that has saved them many times in hard conditions when everything else failed. My love for the Fishunter (color no. 128) bloomed on a fall evening when I was was walking with a spinning rod and managed to provoke a huge pike to bite The struggle was hard and tiring. The fish started to run away toward a fallen tree right after it bit down but I managed to haul it to the bank. When I first saw it my legs became weak and my heart started beating faster – I knew I had a real crocodile. Everything happened so quickly that I didn’t even have time to go back for my landing net, which was lying a few meters behind me. Unfortunately I lost this beautiful fish in the end, as it bent my hook and swam back home. I learned a lot that day. First of all, I always have to use an additional treble hook when using large lures. Secondly, if this huge pike that no one else has managed to outsmart bit down on my Fishunter it’s a clear sign that this is a reliable lure. All of this happened a long time ago and I still hope I will catch that crocodile one day now that I have more experience. Fishunter has been with me ever since, accompanying me on all my fishing trips. I successfully use it for pike, perch and zander. I choose jig heads to go with it depending on the conditions and they range from 3 to 30 gram. I own Fishunters in all sizes and now that the Goliat is out I cannot wait to visit my magical lake. Fall is coming and it’s the time for huge, toothy pike.
See you on the water,
