If you haven’t seen the incredible footage Giant Trevally attacking, and eating birds, you should treat yourself to it. It just goes to show how aggressive these fish are, and that, given the opportunity, they will pray on just about anything. Head inshore, and to fresh water, and Murray Cod feed in a similar fashion. By no means do they show the speed that trevally show, but their willingness to eat literally anything that strays into their territory is very similar to their blue water counter-parts.
Amazing Capture ….Outstanding. 😍😨

From frogs and cicadas, to snakes, and as we’ve seen, birds, there are fish out there that feed very entertainingly on the surface, and that’s where Savage Gear had an idea.
You may or may not have seen the creativity of Savage Gear represented in its lures, sitting on BCF shelves. In recent years, they have put A LOT of effort into developing life-like lures. They have recreated 3D renders of fish, including trout, roach, mullet, prawns and crayfish. Some may say they’re gimmicky, but trust me, don’t knock them until you’ve given them a go. If you’re on your 100th cast at the same snag without luck, and you need something different to change it up, having a little Savage Gear critter in your tacklebox could be just the thing the fish are looking for.
Savage Gear also recreated a couple of topwater baits that are nothing short of bonkers. The bat, the rat, the frog, and of course, the 3D duck all take pride of place at the head of Savage Gear’s incredible lure product catalogue.
Originally designed as topwater baits for freshwater fishermen, they have also shown their versatility in the salt. In fact, our mate Sammy Hitzke caught two good looking GTs on a Savage Gear duck with a big treble hook attached.
So if you’re sick of the same old soft plastic shape, or wanting to challenge yourself with something a little different, have a gander at the range of Savage Gear critters, and let us know how you go!
