The Signature Needlefish lures have been designed and extensively tested by top South Devon Bass guide Marc Cowling. The lure is perfectly balanced so that it sits level as it sinks. The sink rate of 1ft per second allows you to work the lure really slowly. They are made from tough resin and have a through wire construction for extra strength. The lure profile closly matches small squid and cuttlefish as well as small baitfish. The large eye provides a natural strike point and is positioned just above the centre hook mount to give an improved hook up rate.

These lures can be used in a number of ways but a slow retrieve at night is the killer method as the cover of darkness give bass the confidence to move into shallow inshore water. takes can come at any point from when the lure first lands right up to just under your feet. The three colours have been chosen to offer the best performance under a range of different light conditions.

  • White -For use in very dark conditions, rocky and weedy ground and/or in deeper water.
  • Silver -For use in intermittent or some ambient light conditions such as a half Moon, and/or over a mixed seabed in medium depths of water.
  • Black -For use under a bright Moon, twilight conditions or when fishing over a clean seabed in exceptionally shallow water (when they are silhouetted).

Fishing Tips

  • The 'Signature Needlefish' will generally cast further when a slower, smoother and higher trajectory is administered to the cast, over a snappier cast made at a lower trajectory.
  • As soon as the Needlefish splashes on the surface, wind down as you normally would for a hard surface lure or diving minnow until you can 'feel' it's weight through the rod/line.
  • From the moment it enters the water, the lure will sink, horizontally (level) at a rate of approximately 20-30cm per second, enabling the angler to determine where in the water column the lure is in relation to the seabed.
  • Once the desired depth has been achieved, commence with a steady and constant retrieve of approximately two full turns of the reel's handle per second (if you want the lure to swim with a slight wobble to it) and between a half and one full turn per second if you want the lure to swim in a straight line.*when using a 3000 size reel with a retrieve ratio of 6.0:1*
  • If your stance is above sea level, then holding the rod with the tip down will ensure the lure remains submerged when it is approaching you. If you are stood at sea level or actually in the water then holding the rod up at between 20-40obefore gradually lowering it as the lure approaches you is recommended.
  • Pauses, twitches and changes of speed to the retrieve (to mimic a vulnerable or fleeing prey item) can also be highly effective, and the responsiveness and manoeuvrability of this lure lends itself well to this approach. Enjoy practicing with it in daylight!
  • Due to the extremely subtle manner in which the lure travels through the water in line with what it is designed to represent, it is best suited to be utilised in very calm sea conditions over any type of seabed, or in up to 3ft of surf/breaking lines of waves turning over a clean seabed.
